Bamboo rollers will become as popular with massage aficionados as hot stones are

"Bamboo rollers will become as popular with massage aficionados as hot stones are," predicts Dorit Baxter, founder and owner of New York Day Spa conveniently located in midtown Manhattan,, which recently was the subject of a recent profile in the New York Times, Baxter explains that her spa held a series of training sessions for its licensed massage therapists in the optimal use of bamboo rollers

Enhancing therapeutic massage with bamboo implements has long been popular in Asia and more recently in Europe. The following attributes will ensure a growing popularity in the U.S. for this healing treatment

    TENDER TOOLS: Mini-rollers flexibly glide over the client's well-oiled body in broad sweeping strokes while the therapist's skillful fingers tenderly loosen tension-tightened points at the juncture of joints.

    DUAL EFFECT: The effect of these dual techniques performed simultaneously by a solo massage practitioner is a sensation of being worked on by two therapists at once.

    SYNERGETIC WARMTH: Bamboo, derived from woody perennial evergreen grass plants indigenous to East Asia and South East Asia, has a crystalline heat-generating matrix which melds with the temperature of the client's body for a restfully warm treatment.

    VERSATILE ENHANCEMENT: Whether the client has requested a deep-tissue session or lighter muscular work, the use of bamboo implements in the course of a massage will be beneficial because combining precise, gentle tools with a focused, healing touch results in relaxed musculature and reenergized mood.

    SELECTIVE USE: Massage therapists at Dorit Baxter Day Spa have been trained to intuit in every massage at what phases of the treatment, and for which conditions, the rollers can be most effective, and what size roller will be optimal for which client.

Bamboo Bodywork is a new technique which can be included in all varieties of massage offered at Dorit Baxter. One-hour massage with bamboo--$95.00, half-hour--$59.00. To make an appointment call 212 371-4542
