What is Bamboo Massage?
Bamboo Massage is a complementary therapy similar to Swedish Body or Deep Tissue massage but with bamboo canes (stalks) of various diameters and lengths to promote relaxation and well-being.
How it works
The bamboo canes can be either heated or used at room temperature. A massage medium is applied to the skin enabling the bamboo canes to glide freely over the contours of the recipient’s body.
The application of bamboo canes enables the therapist to employ gravity supported leverage whilst utilising their body weight. Combined with a massage medium (e.g. oil) various massage techniques are then applied with the bamboo canes (e.g. kneading and rolling the body tissues) to stimulate a deep sensation of extreme relaxation and deep massage.
Furthermore Bamboo Massage can be used either on its own or in combination with other therapies such as Chinese Medicine or physical therapy to promote physiological and psychological well-being.
Why choose Bamboo Massage
It is ideal and popular amongst sports professionals and people that enjoy a deep invigorating tissue massage to help facilitate the relief of muscle tension sustained in sports and professions that build up stress.

Three visits to Nick in 3 weeks and to my amazement not only did I make the start line but I ran the 26 miles, non-stop in under 4 hours, without any problems with my calf muscle..
His knowledge of anatomy was incredible. ...The pain I experienced disappeared almost instantly after I left the treatment room and has been a lot better since... Thanks Nick!
