[title]What is it?[/title]
An ancient massage technique from Japan using tools that look like wooden drumsticks. They’re tapped on the back, and are apparently great for getting rid of tension and boosting circulation.
[title]What does it involve?[/title]
While my colour was processing I relaxed in the chair and the therapist gently tap-danced the sticks all around my upper back and shoulder area for about 15mins.
[title]Sounds like torture![/title]
It felt fantastic. It was different from other massages because I could feel the vibrations throughout my body as I was tapped.
[title]Could you relax?[/title]
I did. I didn’t fall asleep, when I opened my eyes I felt totally calm.
[title]Did it help?[/title]
My back felt amazing. It made me realise how much tension I’d been holding in. I felt really relaxed, invigorated and re-energised. I’ll definitely be going back for the treatment again.
