Bamboo Massage may seem like a fairly new concept to us in the West, but indeed this treatment has roots in ancient Chinese and Japanese Cultures. Hollow Bamboo canes of different sizes are used to perform deep tissue massage. It is particularly beneficial for the thighs and calfs, where we often hold a lot of tension without even knowing it! Smaller bamboo canes are used on pressure points on the feet, and facial massage can also be performed with smaller bamboo canes too.

Leg & Foot Bamboo Massage – 45 mins* – £35
If you’re on your feet all day, play a lot of sports or do a lot of dance or gymnastics, a leg and foot massage will be just what you need at the end of the week. This deep tissue massage using warm oil and medium sized bamboo canes will give much needed relief to your calf, quads and hamstring muscles and will also help with the appearance of cellulite.
Smaller bamboo canes are then used on pressure points on the feet, which in turn can stimulate other areas of the body to re-balance.
A thorough consultation will be given prior to treatment. As this is a deep tissue massage, warm-up stretches are performed at the beginning of the treatment. Full aftercare advice will also be given to ensure you gain the maximum benefit from the treatment moving forward.
Full Body Bamboo Massage – 1hr 30mins* – £55
