Lol, Got Your Back is actually where I first saw it because I get email updates from there for courses, products, etc. So I went to the other website to see if there was more info.
Do you use your rollers for a full body massage service? If so, is it popular and how is it for you as the therapist?
Thank you for your help. :)
Do you ever teach classes in PA or surrounding states?
I love Mu-Xing. I just learned it with Advanced Education Systems. They are great. We took a 2 day training workshop and really feel in love with the treatment, as a client and as a therapist. The tools are warmed and combined with massage techniques.I have had some really great feed back from my clients. The best part for me is that the tools loosens the tissue saving my hands. I hope this is helpful for you....
I took this course as well and found it to be one of the coolest new modalities to hit the market. Vicki is correct by stating it saves your hands and clients love it. The clients tissue melts quickly providing a pathway for positive results. Handling the tools during employment comes very naturally and as far as cleaning is concerned, it could not be easier. A few simple swipes of anti-bac wipes followed by a "once-over" with oil to keep them conditioned and your ready to go.
In regards to the rollers, Mu-Xing's bamboo sticks are actually cross cut sections of bamboo then compressed with tremendous force into dowls making them perfect for massage. They are as smooth as jade. On that note Mr. Cohen, with all due respect, this is a blog about Mu-Xing, not an ad for your practice. You may or may not realize it but your first post does not read like a response. It reads more like an ad trying to lure people away from this technique before they even learn about it and your follow up shows this is how you sell. Out of respect for AES, the creators of this modality, I ask you to keep your ads to your own blogs. You owe them an apology at the very least.
For all who read this now and in the future, Mu-Xing is not only going to outlast the test of time, but it's popularity is already growing beyond it's conception. The technique that AES created is easy to follow and allows you, the practitioner to explore and grow with the modality, making it your own. The class and Certification is merely a stepping stone. I know this because on the second day of the course, the practitioners advanced beyond what the teachers expected to see. Experimenting with them is the most fun for me because again, handling them is so easy.
My Mu-Xing kit is on it's way and I am SO excited to start working with it! I am going to do the webinar in a month as well. I would love to hear more current info and experience on this modality if you guys have some! I compared Mu-Xing with another bamboo company and found their tools, website and customer service to be exceptional :)
Lucky you for finding a CEU course in your area! I've been trying to get training in what is also called "Bamboo Fusion" for a couple of years. Recently, they had a training about an hour and a half from where I live (in Santa Rosa, CA), but I was not able to make it. I would rather learn the, in my thinking, more traditional form, Mu-Xing, anyway! There are almost none of these trainings (Mu-Xinf or Bamboo Fusion) out West! When will the west get with it? I would sure like to learn, save my hands, provide a wonderful therapy (I HAVE received a "Bamboo Fusion" massage from a practitioner about an hour away from me), and be on the leading edge! Natalie Cecilia started Bamboo Fusion and she is out of Florida. You can see their info at www.babmoo-fusion.com It looks to me like the Mu-Xing s more compreshensive. Ther are lots of YouTube videos. Just google Bamboo and massage and see what you find. I found one of a man telling you how to make your own bamboo massage tools. There are lots of intstructional videos, though. (Just be careful, there's porn,too! JEEZ!) Hope this helps, and let me know if you hear of any workshops in CA!
