This course teaches the unique technique of Bamboo Massage.
It is a 1-day, post-graduate course for students who hold a Diploma in Anatomy & Physiology and a body therapy.
Bamboo Massage is a heat treatment that originates from China. Warmed, smooth bamboo sticks are used with deep pressure-point work and kneading and rolling techniques to release knots and soothe aching muscles. The heat increases circulation and improves lymphatic & toxin drainage. The result is the client experiences a warm, intensely relaxing full body treatment.
Training is now exclusively available in Ireland from Sangoma, teaching many hands-free techniques, reducing aching fingers and posture-related strain.
