Information about hot bamboo massage
What is a hot bamboo massage?
A hot bamboo massage, also known as a Bamboo Fusion massage, is an alternative therapy founded by Nathalie Cecilia. The therapy uses heated raw bamboo and rattan tools of varying lengths and diameters to roll, knead and relax the muscles with deep tissue techniques. It's an effective way to release stress and tension. The use of compression, tapotement, rolling and warmth on the muscles reduces pain in the muscle tissue, ligaments and joints.
How is a bamboo fusion massage performed?
After discussing your needs with you, your massage therapist will ensure you're comfortable on the massage table and then apply oil on your body to get your skin ready for the bamboo. During a hot bamboo fusion massage session, your massage therapist will generally start at your foot (on one side) and gradually move upwards towards your head before going back down the other side of your body.

Update - had a hot stone massage with Fi which I was a little apprehensive about as I hadn’t had one before.. and oh my goddd I would never get anything else now!! Fi was communicative and always made sure the stones were the right temperature and that I was comfortable. Amazing experience. Next time I want an Indian head massage. 😍

Anxiety and depression
