What is a Warm Bamboo Massage?

A heated bamboo massage may sound new, but bamboo has been an important part of eastern culture for generations. It is a renewable resource, and some feel it has an energy all of its own!

Heating the bamboo tools helps increase relaxation. The set of tools can provide a variety of techniques and pressure during the massage. The tools act as an extension of the massage therapists’ hands for Swedish, Deep Tissue, and Trigger Point work. The bamboo sticks offer a kneading and ironing element that helps release muscle tensions. The combination of the bamboo tools and technique can be especially beneficial in a deep tissue massage.

The bamboo sticks are varying sizes. Some are fully circular while some have one smooth, flat side and the other side is rounded. The smoothness of the tools helps the therapist penetrate and maneuver the tools to hit certain muscle groups that usually cannot be penetrated by deep tissue work with a therapist’s hands. This makes deep tissue massage easier on the therapist to perform on the client.


  • The Bamboo Tools helps the massage therapist get deeper into muscle groups than they could with just their hands/fingers
  • Relieve muscle ache
  • Improve lymphatic drainage
  • Can help skin glow because of the ingredients in bamboo such as silica
    • Silica helps the body absorb calcium, potassium, and other essential minerals.
  • Help alleviate psoriasis and eczema
  • Stimulates blood circulation
  • Increases flexibility

The tools break down muscle tensions felt in the legs, feet, and IT bands. As such, this massage is especially great for runners, cyclists, and athletes for enhancing sport performance.

This type of massage also has its advantages for the massage therapist. The tools help to minimize stress put on the therapists arms, hands and fingers. Less stress on their own body lets them penetrate deeper into the muscle groups to help achieve the desired pressure. Once the therapist is comfortable with the bamboo sticks through training, they can maneuver and use them as trigger point work like they would with their hands/fingers.

How to Prepare for a Bamboo Massage

When deciding where you want to get your massage, make sure it is with a massage therapist who has been trained in performing the bamboo massage.

It’s also important to make sure you hydrate your body prior to your massage. Why?

Massage releases toxins in the body. Hydrating before and after helps the body break down these toxins easier. Hydrated muscles are also easier for a massage therapist to manipulate and move around over a dehydrated muscle.

What to Expect During a Warm Bamboo Massage

During the massage, your massage therapist will use the different tools on your entire body. Depending on the muscle groups, different tools or techniques may be used.

This is a warm treatment since the tools are heated as well as the massage bed. If you fear you will become too warm during your massage, let the receptionist know ahead of time and the bed will not be warmed. Since the body is stimulated by the heat, it helps circulate toxins and remove them. This improves lymphatic drainage and gets rid of excess fluids throughout the body. A warm bamboo massage is a great treatment if you are looking for a little detox on the body.


The cost of a Warm Bamboo Massage ranges from $50 up to around $175 depending on where you have this service done and the training behind it.
