Bamboo-FusionTM is an innovative way to provide Swedish or deep tissue full body massage on the table while reducing the stress on your hands. You will learn a new way to massage (effleurage and petrissage) with warm bamboo tools of different shapes and sizes. By introducing a new tool, you will increase the amount of clients you can apply deep tissue to, give longer sessions without fatigue, and it will also save your hands from repetitive use injuries.
Bamboo Massage is a "new" exciting and fun way to deliver an exotic treatment your clients will love!

There are no special requirements for our workshops; only curiosity, motivation and a smile are suggested!
We like to keep our seminars casual and informal. My goal as instructor is to provide a healthy, learning environment with the emphasis on safety while allowing you the opportunity to grasp the basics of Bamboo-Fusion.
After we receive your deposit - we can also assist you in contacting other students / therapists in your group in the event you want to share transportation or accommodations.
Things to bring:
Class hotel and travel information.
Make sure you have plenty of travel time both into and out of Cincinnati. Therapists who rush in the morning of the seminar and/or try to rush out directly after the seminar tend to feel drained and overwhelmed. Arrive the night prior to class and stay close to the seminar site for an easy commute. Please get a good night's rest before class starts each morning. Certain guidelines must be adhered to in accordance with the National Certification Board of Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork, and with the State of Ohio. Punctuality is a must! You will only receive full credit hours on your transcript if you are on time each day. We will be working in teams each day, so if one person is late, it will affect the entire team. Make your travel and hotel plans with this in mind. If you wish, I can send you contact information of other out of town students should you wish to share accommodations at the host hotel near the training facility.
