What is Wood Therapy?

The wood therapy is a massage with the help of various wooden instruments specially designed to achieve body and facial results that are difficult to achieve with massage alone.

Various tools of different sizes and shapes are used, to suit the different parts of the body and what is to be worked on. For example the rollersthe swedish cup or the modelling board.

Each one of the instruments used for the treatment of cellulite allow the stimulation of different layers of adiposity of the skin and thus eliminates the adipocytes and consequently the classic “orange-peel skin” disappears. The results are visible from the first session, even if applied on people suffering fluid retention, as it will stimulate drainage.

Wood therapy applications

Wood therapy is applied in both facial and body treatments.

In the body treatmentsIn this massage, we are going to work on the circulatory system, modelling localised adiposity in the buttocks, waist, thighs and abdomen above all. This type of massage activates the microcirculation of the treated area and improves the fluid retention. This technique is also used to shape the buttocks giving them a firmer and lifted appearance.

It can also be used to work on muscle contractions caused by bad posture or physical activity.
