What is Warm Bamboo Mu-Xing Therapy?
Mu-Xing Therapy is a treatment using warm bamboo and rosewood tools to perform deep tissue massage techniques. Using different sized and shaped tools, a variety of massage strokes is applied to the muscles which address ischemic tissue and promote a deep sense of overall well being and relaxation.
What are Mu-Xing tools made from?
There are 2 types of wood used in Mu-Xing Therapy; Rosewood and Bamboo.
Rosewood is a hardwood usually deep red in color, found in Brazil, East India, Japan and Madagascar. Mu-Xing rosewood tools are individually hand carved. Each rosewood piece is unique and specially crafted for Mu-Xing techniques.
The bamboo is 100% natural. We do not use any varnish or finishes. Using bamboo in this raw form allows for greater sensitivity and palpation of the tissue and muscles. Mu-Xing tools are made from cross sections of solid bamboo which are then compressed and cut into pieces. The bamboo pieces are finely sanded and ready for practicing Mu-Xing. This process creates a sturdy and long lasting product. Mu-Xing tools are easy to maintain because simple imperfections can be smoothed easily with an emery board or fine sand paper.
