New on the menu is wood therapy, combining lymph work with this form of vigorous massage, for a most exclusive experience. Using wooden handheld tools, including rolling pins and vacuum-suction cups to help mold the body, each treatment focuses on a problem area. The receiver will experience all the benefits of massage in addition to the end goal being natural elimination of toxins, increased blood circulation and lymphatic drainage. Recommended treatment protocol is two to three sessions per week, with five to six sessions revealing optimal results. Benefits of wood therapy include: loosening of tight, restricted muscles; burning of fat; lymphatic drainage; toxin elimination; increased metabolism; breaking down of cellulite; toning, tightening and reducing overall circumference.
The technique of wood therapy has seen a surge in popularity, primarily in South America, where people call it maderoterapia (madera is Spanish for wood). Purportedly, wood therapy is centuries old and originated in Asia.
Albeit a 100 percent natural, noninvasive holistic massage treatment considered safe, it is advised to consult with one’s healthcare provider or massage therapist prior to beginning any new treatments to be absolutely sure of compatibility.
