Bamboo (Rattan) Massage – Healing with Bamboo – coming June 2019
Rattan is a type of bamboo which is solid rather than hollow. Massaging using Rattan is referred to as either a Rattan Massage or Bamboo Massage. While performing a Bamboo (Rattan) massage, the therapist will use different lengths of Rattan to provide lighter Swedish strokes and sometimes deep tissue pressure.
In some cultures, bamboo is a symbol of youth, strength, and health. Although the use of Rattan in massage therapy is pretty new here in Canada, using Rattan (Bamboo) as a tool for deep tissue work is very effective and has been used in other areas of the world for centuries.
Bamboo and rattan tools of varying shapes and sizes are used during massage, to replace and save the therapist’s hands in areas that need a deeper touch. The bamboo is held by the therapist and rolled over the tissue with the same way they would with their hands.
We often have those clients who require a very deep pressure of massage. This can now be fully addressed with the proper use of the IASTM in the form of Rattan and Rockblades all while still maintaining a natural feel to the client’s massage experience.
Come wind down and relax with a Bamboo (Rattan) Massages! Whether it’s a stressful week at work, or just looking to treat yourself!
