In this Wood Therapy Body Massage comprehensive course, you’ll learn the art of wood therapy, a centuries-old massage technique that uses specially-designed wooden tools to manipulate soft tissue and create a range of therapeutic effects. You’ll explore the different types of wooden tools used in wood therapy, and gain a deep understanding of their benefits and applications.
What is Wood Therapy Massage?
