Wood Therapy

Rolling pins and vacuum-suction cups are only a couple of the wooden handheld tools that are used in the intensive massage technique known as “wood therapy.” Wood therapy allegedly dates back hundreds of years and is Asian in nature. 

Popularity of the wood therapy method has increased, especially in South America where it is known as maderoterapia. Spanish for wood is madera.

This method’s proponents assert that it can lessen or get rid of cellulite.

Other alleged assertions are:

lymphatic circulation is increased

removing wrinkles, lowering stress, and a whole host of additional advantages

None of these claims regarding the advantages of wood therapy have been investigated or supported by research.

Is it successful?

The effectiveness of wood therapy in treating cellulite has not been empirically established.

However, there may be advantages to massage for reducing cellulite. Since wood therapy is a form of massage, it might also be advantageous for temporarily lessening the appearance of cellulite.

How to prepare

Use an expert practitioner if you want to try wood therapy.

The use of the wooden instruments has been cited as having the potential to be unpleasant, particularly by untrained massage therapists.

Avoid having wood therapy performed on your face or other really sensitive areas of your body for this reason.

The practitioner will make use of a range of wooden tools. Some of these resemble rolling pins with deep grooves or textures. Others resemble bells or have a curved form.

The bells will be employed by a practitioner as suction tools.

You might need to have treatments many times each week for three to four months in order to see any results. Some practitioners claim that it would take at least 10 to 12 sessions before you start to experience any improvements.

Depending on your tolerance level, these sessions may last an hour or longer and frequently incorporate many sculpting techniques.

The conclusion

A massage technique known as “wood treatment” makes use of variously shaped wooden instruments.

Wood therapy proponents assert that it has a wide range of advantages, including a reduction in cellulite. However, this assertion hasn’t been examined or supported by research.

Since wood therapy is a form of massage, it could have advantages like relaxation. It might aid in promoting lymphatic drainage, which would lessen the appearance of cellulite.
