Webinar: Bamboo-Fusion Massage Part 1: Bamboo Massage for the Table

Nathalie Cecilia

This webinar was filmed on location at the 2016 World Massage Festival.

The Bamboo-Fusion massage treatment is an innovative way to provide relaxation or deep-tissue, full-body massage on the table, while reducing stress on your hands. In this webinar, you’ll learn a new way to effleurage and petrissage with warmed bamboo tools that are different shapes and sizes. The history of the modality will be discussed and we’ll review contraindications, and the proper care and cleaning of the bamboo tool sets. You’ll learn proper body mechanics to help deliver a deep-tissue massage that is easy on your hands. Using the bamboo tools, you will be able to increase your client load, give longer sessions without fatigue, and save your thumbs and wrists from repetitive use injuries.

This is the first course in a two-part series.
