KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) — If you’ve just recently heard of wood therapy, it’s a massage technique that has been around for centuries, as it originated in South America. It’s now gaining popularity here in the U.S. with the numerous benefits practitioners claim it provides.

Bodhi Bodywork out of Knoxville offers wood therapy to those who may be seeking ways to:

  • Stimulate circulation and movement of lymph
  • Loosen tight muscles
  • Burn fat and shape cellulite to contour the body
  • Increase metabolism
  • Eliminate toxins

There are many other reasons/benefits wood therapy is catching the eye of so many. It’s a natural, non-invasive way to massage and contour the body that attracts those who want to look and feel better while avoiding plastic surgery, Bodhi Bodywork states on their website.

While a single session is relaxing, relieves muscle tension, and improves lymph drainage and blood circulation, clients usually don’t notice body contouring benefits until the third session, so Bodhi Bodywork suggests for a quicker outcome, schedule wood therapy sessions close together.
