Nathalie Cecilia
2009 Massage Therapy Hall of Fame Member

Born in Nimes, a Roman city located in Provence (South France), Nathalie Cecilia is your Bamboo Massage Therapy instructor. With a master's degree in Philosophy and Languages from the Universitee Des Lettres De Montpellier, she began her career as a teacher and a translator.

Traveling from the age of 16 around Europe--and later around the world--she pursued her passion for discovering new horizons, and crossed the Atlantic in order to explore the United States and experience life here. It was here that she decided to change her career.

Keeping her goal to help people in mind, she attended the Sarasota School of Massage Therapy. Three months following her graduation in 2004, she opened Two Touch Company--a Thai studio and massage therapy office in Sarasota, Florida.

Many of Nathalie's clients were asking for deep tissue treatment. She soon began to experience pain and fatigue in her hands and wrists. When she started using bamboo to assist her with deep tissue work, she noticed that her pain subsided and her clients loved it.

She developed an innovative way to give bamboo massage on the table (Bamboo-Fusion®) and in the chair, meanwhile creating her own bamboo set to give the massage. Her goal today is to help therapists provide deep massage without hurting themselves. This technique aids in avoiding repetitive injuries, such as carpal tunnel, and reduces the stress on thumbs, wrists and hands.

Intro to Bamboo-fusion®
2 CE Credit Hours

Bamboo-Fusion® ... is an innovative way to provide Swedish or deep tissue full body massage on the table while reducing the stress on your hands. Bamboo-fusion is a trademarked modality created by Nathalie Cecilia originally from South France.

The demonstration will show you how to effleurage and petrissage with "warmed" bamboo tools that are different shapes and sizes. By utilizing bamboo tools, therapists will increase the amount of clients you can apply deep tissue to, give longer sessions without fatigue, and it will also save your thumbs and wrists from repetitive use injuries.

Bamboo-Fusion is a new, exciting, and fun way to deliver a unique luxury treatment your clients will love. The bamboo tools are 100% solid bamboo so they warm quickly and hold heat well. Cleaning and sanitizing the bamboo tools in between clients is also fast and easy.

During the overview, we will also discuss our other bamboo tool set for use on the massage chair. The bamboo set is lightweight and easy to carry so it is a great way to promote your business and for performing house calls. In addition, the founders' newest creation called Bamboo Visage (facial massage) will also be discussed, which uses a delicate bamboo set designed especially for the face. Bamboo Visage is a wonderful finishing touch to end a full body massage or can be offered as a standalone facial massage treatment.
