CAM is a form of medicine that either forms the main treatment option or complements regular medical treatment. In most cases, massages are used as a complementary therapy for regular medical treatment with a great deal of success.

What is a bamboo massage?

A bamboo massage is a special type of massage that originated in ancient China. In ancient china, massages were done using bamboo cups; these cups were heated to help increase the effectiveness of the massage. When the bamboo is heated, the massage is referred to as heated bamboo massage.

Tools used

Today, bamboo massages are done using larger, hollow bamboo sticks of different sizes.

These sticks act as tools, taking the place of human hands, and help massage the deeper layers of the muscle, thereby offering a better massage on the whole. These not only massage better than hands but also minimize the stress, aches and pains that a lot of massage therapists experience during their work day.

It is estimated that by the year 2018, the demand for massage therapists will go up by about 19 percent.  If you are someone with the hands for this and an understanding of the human body, this may be a good option for you.

While bamboo massage seems simple in theory, there is a lot that you need to be able to do in order to succeed as a bamboo massage therapist. Most institutions that cater to this type of training, offer a course with a duration of one year that includes study as well as on-hand practice.

List of criteria needed for bamboo massage training courses:

  • Age of candidate must be over 18.

  • Fitness certificate from a doctor
  • Photo ID
  • Should be free of spreading diseases
  • Should have the determination to go through with the training
  • Should not have a history in crime

Once the training is completed, with both theory and practice, the candidate needs to take up an exam, the National Massage Therapists Exam, in order to qualify as a licensed practitioner.
