Warm Bamboo Therapeutic Massage
Mu-Xing Therapy or Bamboo-fusion is a unique wood-based treatment utilizing heated bamboo to the arms, hands, back, legs, feet, and face. Bamboo has been used with a massage around the world to promote health and well-being. Using these warm tools and a variety of massage strokes address ischemic tissue and promote a deep sense of overall wellbeing. The warmth and natural properties of the tools promote deep relaxation and melt muscular tension.
Heated Bamboo incorporates different lengths and diameters of bamboo sticks. Heated Bamboo is integrated into a flowing Swedish massage. It brings the warming, soothing effect of hot stone into massage without all the extra time, mess, and prep work that stone therapy brings. Since there is not all the extra work it can be done without having to charge more for the extra preparation.
Bamboo holds the heat longer than hot stones do. The bamboo sticks are wrapped in a heating pad to warm them. The bamboo is easily cleaned and sanitized with antibacterial wipes.
The therapist can easily palpate, find tension, and dissolve knots and trigger points. They are used to knead and stretch muscle and fascia in all directions. The massage can go as light or as deep as necessary.
Massage oil is used with the bamboo. The warmth brings relaxation in a shorter time as it quickly penetrates to relax the muscles.
The Benefits of Warm Bamboo
The heat adds a different type of sensory stimulation to a traditional massage but also has physiological effects that can be healing. There are many benefits to using heat on the body during the massage. The heat has been used for ages to offer relief from sore, stiff muscles as well as stress.
Combining a heated protocol with a full body massage provides a very healing and effective experience. The heat also expands blood vessels, which encourages blood flow throughout the body. It has a sedative effect that can help relieve chronic pain, reduce stress and promote deep relaxation.
