The bamboo sticks can be used in various techniques and modalities, giving the therapist a lot of versatility and ability to focus on specific client needs. Many compare bamboo massage to deep tissue massage, but the bamboo can also be used to replicate the strokes used in Swedish Massage.
Depending on client needs, bamboo can also be combined with Thai, Lymphatic Drainage and Ayurvedic techniques. Some masseurs combine it with elements of Shiatsu to stimulate acupuncture pressure points. Even specialists in traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) sometimes combine bamboo massage with bamboo cupping jars.
