Thai Bamboo Massage Training Classes and Workshops in Thailand

The use of bamboo has a long history in China, Japan, Thailand, Indonesia and other Asian countries.

In the far past, thin sheets of bamboo were used as paper by monks in Buddhist Temples, and young bamboo is still used as food. The list is long – from making tools, decorations and mats to building houses, from artifacts in creative, healing and spiritual expressions to massage.

Today, we see bamboo massage increasingly offered on Spa menus, both in the East and in the West. Polished, hollow bamboo rods and sticks of different sizes and diameters are used – warm or cold – to roll or glide on muscles to soften, relax and stretch them.

Some therapists prefer to apply the rods by heating the bamboo believing that with heat the work will be more therapeutic because of being able to penetrate deeper into tissue and muscle layers. In fact, a bit the same idea as using hot herbal compresses in Thai Herbal Ball Massage.

Although the bamboo rods can be used on every part of the body, they are specifically excellent for working on the legs (thighs and calves), neck and shoulders, and arms.

Bamboo massage can be used stand-alone to do a complete massage, but it’s more likely applied as an extra tool and complementary method being part of a detox and / or weight loss program, or to attack persistent blockages, tensions, knots, tangles and muscle contractions, and the like.

There are also benefits for the therapist, because using bamboo sticks reduces over-straining the arms, wrists, hands and fingers, while still allowing for deep penetrating work.

Bamboo Massage training in Thailand is rare. Below we’ve listed the Thai Massage schools across the country that offer training classes.
