Tian Di - Bamboo Sticks Massage

Chinese, Indonesian, and Japanese festivals, rituals, and myths abound with bamboo symbolizing life energy, prosperity, longevity, sexuality, and fertility. In China, stalks of bamboo still symbolize eternal youth, strength, prosperity, and peace.

What may seem like a new technique, bamboo massage, has ancient roots and perhaps deeper associations than simply bodywork.
Bamboo massage is a technique that incorporates bamboo stalks of varying lengths and diameters to provide deep-tissue work. Some practitioners combine elements of shiatsu, traditional Chinese medicine, Thai massage, lymphatic drainage, and even Ayurveda into the technique, and sticks are sometimes heated or essential oils are incorporated into the massage. The massage itself promotes circulation, sensory nerve perception, and lymphatic drainage and provides a deep sense of relaxation and well-being.

Part of what makes bamboo hard and straight, yet flexible and light, is that its outer cell walls are covered with silica. This creates a crystalline-like matrix, much like that of a quartz crystal or our own connective tissue. Some practitioners believe that releasing tension or fascial adhesion held within this matrix can help restore and re-balance the body’s electromagnetic field.

The rolling and kneading of the bamboo sticks stimulates and heats the body, thereby dissipating accumulated toxins. The enhanced circulation moving through the body, heart and lungs also helps to remove stagnant toxins.
Similarly it improves lymphatic drainage and the removal of excess fluids.
Stubborn muscle pain and tension melt away with Bamboo Massage.
