A Revolution in Massage Training: Bamboo-Fusion

By: Mason Rainy

Bamboo-fusion massage therapy is an amazing way to meet clients' needs for deep-pressure muscle work, while preventing strain for the therapist. The style is easy to implement and the massage therapy training can easily be provided at your location to minimize travel for your staff, thus minimizing expenses.

Nathalie Cecilia is the creator of a brand-new spa treatment she calls Bamboo-fusion. This trademarked treatment is growing in popularity, and is in high demand in luxury spa settings. Ms. Cecilia uses bamboo pieces of varying shapes and sizes as extensions of her fingers during a massage treatment. She also "warms" the bamboo so it can penetrate and release the muscles more quickly.

Because of the small, repetitive movements used in massage, massage therapists can incur injuries such as carpel tunnel. For this reason, many are seeking massage training in the Bamboo-fusion technique. With the Bamboo-fusion massage, the bamboo tools allow the massage therapist to easily address deep pressure requests without physical strain.

In 2004, shortly after completing her massage therapy training, Cecilia first started using bamboo and rattan tools to perform a flowing Swedish type massage. These hand crafted tools are custom-designed, allowing even the smallest therapist to give an effective deep tissue massage which is easy on the therapist's body, hands and wrists.

This ecologically sound and sustainable product is made by skilled woodworkers. Bamboo is a highly renewable resource. More than 1500 different species of bamboo grow naturally throughout most Asian countries, in addition to South and Central America. The Chinese and Japanese have used bamboo since ancient times, and it is quickly becoming mainstream in the American culture.

These tool sets are made with 100% solid bamboo, which is pressed into different shapes and sizes to accommodate the Bamboo-fusion massage routine. The tools, designed for full body massage, hold heat well and are easy and comfortable to use. In addition to making commercially-available bamboo tool sets, Cecilia also offers massage training to other therapists. Her top-quality professional massage training is well received by high-end spas, satisfying their need to offer unique treatments to their clients.

The Bamboo-fusion technique implements massage oil or cream in addition to the bamboo tools. Shorter pieces of bamboo work well for smaller areas, such as the areas around the scapula. A 16" bamboo stick is also used in a "criss-cross" technique that stretches the fascia in multiple directions.

Unlike warm stone massage, the bamboo is easy to heatóno roasters or crock pots are required. The bamboo stays warm and there is little clean up between sessions. During the Bamboo-fusion massage training classes, students will also learn to incorporate the use of a few hot stones into the treatment for those who want to combine warm stone and bamboo techniques.

As therapists and clients alike search for new techniques in massage therapy, bamboo is at the forefront of the industry. Massage therapy training in bamboo massage is great for seasoned massage therapists or for those just beginning their massage training. Massage therapy training classes in bamboo massage can be offered almost anywhere. The bamboo sets are very lightweight and portable, making the massage training easy to offer in a variety of settings.

Bamboo-fusion massage therapy training classes are offered in various locations in the United States. They are approved by the state of Florida and the NCBTMB for Continuing Education (CE's) for license renewal. Classes are offered at numerous training facilities on a regular basis in Sarasota, Florida where Nathalie lives. They are also offered in Everett, Durham, and Cincinnati. Ms. Cecilia also offers massage therapy training at spas and resorts across the country.

In addition to massage therapy training workshops, Cecilia also offers DVD's and custom bamboo sets for each of her techniques. These can be used on the table for full body massage and on the chair through clothing. In addition, Ms Cecilia has created a new French facial massage called Bamboo-Visage which utilizes a delicate tool set hand crafted from bamboo and rattan. This treatment was introduced at a recent spa show in Las Vegas, and captured the interest of massage therapists, estheticians and spa directors alike. Retail products and bamboo massage therapy training class information are both available by visiting Ms. Cecilia's website at www.Bamboo-fusion.com.
