About this Bamboo Massage Course ...

Bamboo Massage involves the application of warm, heated bamboo canes on parts of the full body as a massage treatment. It is designed as a replacement applicator to the hands or arms. Its overall benefits result in relaxing tissues, loosening and easing tension and pain and aiding the circulatory system.

The Bamboo Massage courses taught at the London School of Massage provides training in the theory and practice of this highly effective form of massage. It develops on from foundation diploma courses in holistic massage and/or sports massage. The course is intended to give practitioners the understanding in the use of bamboo for a massage treatment, as well as knowledge on how to heat, cool, clean and store them.

Bamboo Massage techniques can be used in conjunction with many other therapies and the course will explore the many other disciplines in which this therapy can be incorporated. It is a course qualification which on completion, will allow the practitioner to obtain full professional insurance and gain employment in conjunction with previous massage training.
