Seated Oriental Bamboo massage is a technique that incorporates bamboo stalks of varying lengths and diameters to provide deep-tissue work.  It is performed on a Massage Chair with the client fully clothed.  (The Japanese name for bamboo is “take”, while the Chinese call it “chu”. It is from this word that the cho sticks, used by some bamboo massage practitioners, take their name.) Bamboo massage itself promotes circulation, sensory nerve perception, and lymphatic drainage and provides a deep sense of relaxation and well-being. This course also includes work on the Meridian Lines and acupressure points which are activated using the point of a small Bamboo cane.

This treatment is non-invasive as the massage can be applied through clothes and therefore can be performed anywhere. You can now learn these techniques which combined with the ancient cultural tradition gives a very relaxing massage helping alleviate the demands of modern life. An added benefit for the practitioner is that using the bamboo sticks helps to reduce stress and strain on hands and fingers while still allowing for deeply penetrating.  This massage also incorporates acupressure work with the bamboo sticks.
