Discover the Bamboo Massage

Known as a powerful healing tool in ancient China, Japan and Indonesia, bamboo is believed to possess a wealth of health benefits such as life energy, prosperity, longevity, and fertility. In China, stalks of bamboo still symbolize eternal youth, strength, prosperity, and peace.

The 5 Bubbles award winning Donnington Valley Hotel & Spa in Newbury, Berkshire has launched the Bamboo Massage treatment, inviting its visitors to discover the wellbeing benefits of this natural tool.

This unique 55-minute therapy incorporates uplifting Cica, Rosemary & Niaouli Essential Oils and has many physical, mental and emotional benefits. The kneading process not only removes lactic acid to reduce muscular pain, but also stretches and elongates muscles, thus giving the body more vitality, flexibility and endurance. This massage technique also promotes blood circulation, lymphatic drainage and sensory nerve perception whilst providing a deep sense of relaxation and well-being.

Giving the deep tissue massage a whole new meaning, the new Bamboo Massage utilizes different sized bamboo sticks to balance, calm and energise the body, and is beneficial to both clients and therapists. After just one session, clients will feel stubborn muscle pain and tension melt away due to the intensive kneading and rolling techniques, whilst therapists will enjoy reduced stress and strain on their fingers compared to intensive traditional massage techniques.

The bamboo massage also offers long term benefits when experienced consistently due to the high percentage of silica in bamboo sticks. When applied to the body regularly, the silica encourages absorption of essential minerals such as potassium, calcium and magnesium, leading to improved health of the skin, ligaments, tendons and bones, as well as natural skin healing through cell regeneration.

This unique new treatment is the ultimate relaxing, stretching and detoxifying experience for those wanting to feel pain-free and full of vitality.

The Bamboo Massage costs £75 for a 55 minute treatment with an introductory price* of £55.00 valid Monday-Thursday and £85 Friday-Sunday.
