Warm Bamboo & Introduction to Gua Sha Massage Workshop.
In this 8 hour NCBTMB Workshop, you will receive and learn a full body, relaxing, deep tissue, warm bamboo & gua sha 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 and modalities 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 be introduced to doing 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: $225. 2-hour Instructional DVD included.
Heated bamboo tools will be available for students to use during class. A 11-piece set of Bamboo tools will be available for students to purchase after class for $135.
