Tian Di Bamboo Massage and Cupping Workshop
Saturday, October 25 - Sunday, October 26
Contact Bonny at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and to register
You will learn the use of bamboo as tools and instruments to do a complete bodywork session, using the different sizes and cuts of bamboo sticks (Cho sticks) as an extension of your hands, forearms and elbows therefore saving your hands and wrists. The use of bamboo will help you to work deeper and more effectively. This workshop includes Chinese cupping and gua sha therapy, and incorporates the 5 element theory. You get 3 modalities in one class!
You will have the understanding of how the unique properties of Bamboo are passed to your clients to create healing, restoration, and balance. Bamboo’s outer walls contain silica, the same element that creates quartz crystal therefore having the same properties. Piezoelectricity is activated with pressure and Pyroelectricity with heat. These two properties are activated as we use the Cho sticks. Tian Di Bamboo Massage will help to dissipate stagnant heat as a result of accumulation of toxins and poor circulation, therefore aiding in deep tissue healing, spasms, and trigger points as well as the elimination of toxins.
