The modern age is an age that pursues ways and techniques to escape from the chaotic lifestyle. When the quest for relaxation and rejuvenation has become paramount, massage therapies have emerged as a pre-dominant means of delivering serenity and tranquility. Although we can’t say that massage is not something exclusive to the modern era, it is the age that has taken massage therapies to the next level, meaning new innovations and techniques have been blooming.
One such technique is using bamboo. You might have heard of using bamboo in various things like fabrics, skin care products, medicines, and much more. But have you ever heard that bamboo has been used in massages?
What is Hot Bamboo Massage?
It is more like a hot stone massage, where a bamboo stick of different lengths and diameters, instead of stone is heated on the heating pan. It is also known as ‘Bamboo Fusion” massage. Generally, a long and thick bamboo is used to roll and knead on the tissues to produce a deep sensation of relaxation and relief. The heat along with the deeper pressure is believed to penetrate the skin and pores even more deeper, doubling up the benefits of massage therapy, explains ThreeBestRated® therapists.
Beneficial for Skin:
As bamboo is rich in anti-oxidant properties, when it is used in massage, the heat enables the anti-oxidant to penetrate deep into cells and tissues. This helps prevent wrinkles and slows down the process of aging. And, the silica present in the bamboo helps to achieve healthier and glowing skin. The massage also facilitates the cells and tissues in absorbing the nutrients like calcium, potassium, and magnesium that are essential to achieve healthier skin. It boosts the collagen in the body and improves the skin texture.
Increase the Blood Flow:
When the warm stick is rolled onto the body, it opens up the body’s pores and blood vessels, increasing the blood flow to rush through the interstitial tissues. Generally increased blood flow results in a higher degree of detoxification and an immediate healing effect. In addition, it delivers fresh and oxygen-rich blood to the tensed and damaged muscles which eases out inflammation and muscle pain. It also facilitates the removal of metabolic waste from the internal organ and muscles and promotes bodily function.
Offers Deep Sensation of Relaxation:
Hot bamboo massage has all the benefits of a stone massage. The bamboo is said to hold the heat longer than the stone. Therefore, the relaxation it offers is profoundly deep. As this massage imitates kneading the dough with the rolling pin, it broadens and softens the musculature, which provides deepened and instant relaxation to the muscles.
Offering relaxation to the muscles, it is said to correct bad posture. Not only does desk work improves bad posture, but also muscle tension and fatigue. By relieving muscle tension and healing the (muscle) injuries, it improves flexibility and encourages good posture.
Hot Bamboo Massage has a lot of benefits that only those who have undergone can experience it.
