Option A: Bamboo Fusion (held at Guest House Inn & Suites)
Saturday & Sunday 16 CE hrs granted
The Bamboo-fusion massage treatment is an innovative way to provide relaxation or deep tissue full body massage on the table while reducing stress on the therapists’ hands. Students will learn a new way to effleurage and petrissage with “warmed” bamboo tools that are different shapes and sizes. Each tool was designed with a specific muscle group in mind.
The course is 80% hands-on time and 20% lecture. During lecture, the modality history will be discussed as well as a review on contraindications, marketing, and the proper care/cleaning of the bamboo tool sets. Therapists will be taught proper body mechanics to help deliver a luxurious deep tissue massage. When using the bamboo properly as taught in class, the client cannot detect that tools are being utilized. Bamboo-fusion massage is easy on your hands to perform so therapists will be able to increase the amount of clients you can apply deep tissue to, give longer sessions without fatigue, and also save their thumbs and wrists from repetitive use injuries.
Bamboo-fusion is a new exciting and fun way to deliver a unique luxury treatment your clients will love!
