The Well Spa Retreat Introduces Bamboo Massage

By Megan Tapper Spa Girls

This morning our lovely spa team were presented with their certifications for ‘Bamboo Massage’ The unique treatment, which is only offered at a handful of salons and spas in the area, involves using heated sticks of bamboo in varying lengths and widths to massage the body for a relaxing and therapeutic experience.

 “It’s always fun to learn new treatments - Bamboo Massage is unlike anything I’ve done before. I was surprised at how deep a treatment it is without the therapist needing to use a lot of pressure.” says Samantha Hewer, who is one of the therapists receiving her qualification today.

The Well Spa Retreat, located in the village at Bluestone National Park Resort, offers a wide range of treatments to guests tailored to their individual needs, from facials to massages to body wraps.

“Our therapists here at The Well Spa Retreat are an extremely dedicated and hard-working bunch. They’re always keen to learn new skills wherever possible and so jumped at the chance to try Bamboo Massage.” adds Yvonne Lavis, Manager at The Well Spa Retreat.

All of the therapists were incredibly excited to tell us all about this incredible new treatment, which as part of their training, they have each experienced. “I’ve never felt so relaxed” added Samantha.
