What is the origin of wood therapy?
Its origin is lost in the mists of time. In the oriental tradition, it was typical to use in the different types of massages (Tuina, Thai Massage, etc.) tools that would help to obtain a better result. Stones, bamboo and wood were the materials with which they were made and even today they are all elements easily available in nature and that contain vibrations that are in harmony with us and the earth.
The instruments used are made of wood, normally beech wood is used, handcrafted and treated with ecological impregnants.
They are products totally free of petrochemical solvents, acrylic, vinyl, alkyd and biocide resins. The impregnating agent is exclusively formulated with natural raw materials, vegetable and essential oils, vegetable resins, beeswax, colored earths and has pleasant, basaltic fragrances.
Among the main tools used, there is, for example, the smooth roller, which activates the circulatory system and the lymphatic system; stimulates the peripheral nervous system giving a feeling of deep relaxation. If used in treatments for the reduction of adiposities, the smooth roller helps to eliminate them in the superficial layers of the epidermis.
Then there is also the toothed roller that activates the circulatory system and the lymphatic system, as well as stimulating the peripheral nervous system. Compared to the smooth roller, the toothed model is even more effective in removing adiposity from the epidermis because it acts deeper.
On the other hand, the roller with four large cubes is effective in combating cellulite. This roller is used in specific parts of the body such as the waist, hips and abdomen because it is very suitable for reducing body mass.
There is also a modeling table, used to tone and shape the most difficult areas of the body and redefine the silhouette. It is characterized by the toning action of the skin due to the traction performed by the board, but one of the greatest benefits of this tool is that it has a deep draining action, improves return circulation and relieves any edema problem.
