What is wood therapy?  


It is a natural technique in which a massage is performed using different wooden tools. This method aims to reduce cellulite, tone the body, and reduce stress. 


The wood therapy massage is carried out through repetitive movements with different wooden elements and acting on specific body areas such as muscles, fat, cellulite, face. 


Thanks to this direct, continuous, and deep pressure on the problem areas, the blood circulation, the lymphatic system, and the body metabolism are activated, eliminating fats and liquids. 


In addition, massage is vital for reshaping the figure and breaking down stubborn cellulite. 


Wood therapy can be applied on the whole body, such as hips, thighs, bust, and face. Facial wood therapy is one of the most demanded treatments for its effectiveness in toning, firming, and rejuvenating the face. 


Keep in mind that wood therapy is non-invasive. It is manual and a natural technique. Therefore, it is recommended for any type of patient, both men, and women, except those affected by cancer or kidney disease. 


The explanation is simple. Wood therapy activates the lymphatic system and, according to medical research, cancer cells travel through it. 


On the other hand, the draining effects of wood massage cause the kidney to work harder, and if the patient suffers from kidney disease, this work saturation must be avoided. 


Wood therapy is a massage technique based on the use of different instruments made of wood with different shapes and sizes, designed to be adapted to different body shapes. Although it is a recently known beauty practice, the truth is that it was born thousands of years ago in Asia. 



Why is wood therapy a good option?  


Wood therapy is a technique cataloged as the queen of fibrinolytic and modeling treatments. The use of different wooden instruments designed to adapt to the other areas of the body, activate microcirculation, fighting the accumulation of fat. The main objective is to eliminate excess adipocytes accumulated in different body parts. In the case of women, this accumulation occurs mainly in the hips, thighs, and abdomen. In men, it is usually generated in the abdomen and flanks. 


How does Wood Therapy work? 


The first step is to massage the areas that will be treated. The idea is to prepare the skin for the process and move the accumulated fat.  


Next, a series of essential oils with reducing properties are applied, and the patient is massaged again. The wooden tools will apply direct pressure on the areas that need it. This process is to remove excess fat from the body.  


It is considered totally safe since wood therapy is a non-invasive, 100% natural holistic massage treatment. However, you should always consult a professional before starting any new treatment to confirm that it is a proper one. 


After the completion of the session, the final results depend on each person because each body responds differently to specific therapies, depending on factors such as age, weight, and frequency of treatment. Still, in all cases, it is a relaxing and beneficial treatment. 


Wood therapy is pretty effective, especially if compared to other similar treatments. The more consistent you are, the more noticeable and long-lasting the effects. 


Body treatments with wood therapy 


It is used both to reshape, reduce volume, improve cellulite or firm tissues in different body areas. 


The astonishing thing about this technique is that a reshaping of the figure is achieved while the tissues remain firm. Thanks to the massage with the different utensils (rollers, shovels, and cups), a visible reduction of the contours is achieved, the fat gradually diminishes, and the shapes are defined. 


It is applied for aesthetic purposes to shape the figure, but it can also be performed as a relaxation technique to reduce the patient's stress level. In addition, it is also used to treat muscle or joint contractures. It aims to eliminate accumulated fat in the abdomen, thighs, and hips. This way the method eliminates the retention of liquids and mold and reaffirms a specific area. 


Typically, wood is considered excellent for health because of its benefits. It has firming and toning effects. In addition, it activates the blood and lymphatic circulation of the face, thus helping to improve the appearance of the skin. It also starts collagen and elastin production and can act on the body's muscles, such as the entire legs, abdomen, back, and arms. 


Tools for wood therapy 


During wood therapy, special instruments of different sizes and shapes are used, designed to adapt to other areas of the body. 


The reason why wooden tools are used in this technique is none other than because, in addition to being one of the five elements of nature, it is considered beneficial for health. Some of the most used tools in wood therapy are the following: 


  • Roller 


A roller is a tool that activates both the circulatory and lymphatic systems. In addition, it facilitates the elimination of adipocytes, that is, fat cells. And not only that, it relaxes the body and helps fight cellulite. Depending on the area to be treated, a roller is used in one way or another. 


  • Swedish cup 


A Swedish cup is a tool used to shape areas such as the belly, thighs, buttocks, back, and waist. Its main aim is to reduce fat accumulation and cellulite.  


  • Shaping table 


It helps drain fat and helps eliminate toxins. This tool helps to shape the most challenging areas of the patient's skin. 


The application of the wooden instrument is combined with the hydration of the skin using vegetable oils and essential oils to achieve a more significant effect. 


Despite its popularity for medicinal and cosmetic purposes, it is essential to seek a professional for its practice since a poor application of massage with wooden elements can lead to unwanted injuries. Medical care should always come first.
