Bamboo-fusion® (on the table)  16 CE's 450427-07 

The Bamboo-fusion massage treatment is an innovative way to provide relaxation or deep tissue full body massage on the table while reducing stress on the therapists’ hands.  Students will learn a new way to effleurage and petrissage with “warmed” bamboo tools that are different shapes and sizes.  Each tool was designed with a specific muscle group in mind.

The course is 80% hands-on time and 20% lecture.  During lecture, the modality history will be discussed as well as a review on contraindications, marketing, and the proper care/cleaning of the bamboo tool sets.  Therapists will be taught proper body mechanics to help deliver a luxurious deep tissue massage.  When using the bamboo properly as taught in class, the client cannot detect that tools are being utilized.  Bamboo-fusion massage is easy on your hands  to perform so therapists will be able to increase the amount of clients you can apply deep tissue to, give longer sessions without fatigue, and also save their thumbs and wrists from repetitive use injuries.

Bamboo-fusion is a new exciting and fun way to deliver a unique luxury treatment your clients will love!


Seminar Information

 We like to keep our seminars casual and informal. Our goal as instructor/s is to provide a healthy, learning environment with the emphasis on safety while allowing you the opportunity to learn cupping massage. Our seminars cover a wide range of information to help you implement this new modality into your massage practice.  During the workshop you will receive plenty of individual instruction and will get plenty of “hands on” practice time.  It’s a fun class and you will learn a great deal!  We trust that you are coming to class healthy since you will be giving and receiving a great deal of work during the training session. 

 What to Wear: Comfortable clothing that you can easily move in is suggested.  If you have long hair, please bring something to tie it back with and keep it out of your face and off your neck.  If you tend to get cold easily, bring a long sleeve shirt or sweater just in case.

 Special Note: If you have any problems with sight, hearing, recent injuries, learning disabilities, language barriers or any other situation that may interfere with the learning process, please contact your instructor and discuss your situation.  We will be happy to discuss modifications necessary to make the workshop accessible for you. Our main focus is a quality workshop experience for all.  If you are pregnant or have any conditions that may be contraindicated for warm bamboo, please call your instructor before making a deposit.

CE’s:  Our classes are approved by the NCBTMB for CE’s. We pride ourselves in private, intimate seminars. This gives a small group of therapists the opportunity to experience the ultimate in one-on-one apprenticeship with the instructor/host, Loree Kennedy.

 Tuition and Refund Policy  If for some reason, we do not have enough interest to fill a particular class, the individual instructor reserves the right to cancel a class.  For those traveling from out of town, please confirm the class will be held prior to purchasing your airline tickets and making lodging plans.
