Warm Bamboo & Gua Sha Massage with Abby Cicirelli LMT since 1988

Warm Bamboo & Gua Sha Massage Workshop.

Come to Mt Rainier to attend this 8 hour CE workshop! You will receive and learn a full body, relaxing, deep tissue, warm bamboo & gua sha massage, gua sha facial rejuvenation massage and Thai foot reflexology massage
confident to take to your massage practice the following day.


Bamboo Massage is becoming the most preferred deep tissue and relaxation technique in the massage industry since Hot Stone. This wonderful luxurious full body treatment uses warm bamboo and/or rattan tools designed for relaxation or deep tissue work.

The bamboo cane replaces the therapist's hands, and is able to give a deeper, firmer massage. The cane is rolled or compressed over the muscles with the same strokes they would normally use with their hands. All massage techniques can incorporate the use of bamboo/rattan canes.

This technique works in a very similar way to hot stone massage. The tools are heated using heating pads or a hot towel cabi. Though, it is not necessary to heat them and when the weather is warm, clients may prefer them at room temperature.

As the therapist is not using their hands as much, this has the added benefit of less stress to the practitioner's hands, wrists, arms and shoulders. 

You will also learn how to perform gua sha massage with your bamboo tools. Gua sha is a traditional Chinese medical treatment in which the skin is scraped with a flat edged tool releasing unhealthy elements which stimulates blood flow and healing.
Price: $325.

Price includes a 8-piece set of bamboo massage tools, a jade gua sha tool and a Thai reflexology stick.
