Facial Wood Therapy
Wood therapy is a vigorous massage technique that utilizes wooden, handheld tools, such as rolling pins and vacuum-suction cups. Purportedly, wood therapy is centuries old and originated in Asia.
The technique of wood therapy has seen a surge in popularity, primarily in South America, where people call it Madero-therapy. Madera is Spanish for wood.
Practitioners of this technique claim that it can reduce or eliminate cellulite.
Other purported claims include:
- increasing lymphatic circulation
- reducing wrinkles
- alleviating stress
- providing a whole mixed bag of other benefits
Researchers have not studied or proven any of these claims about the benefits of wood therapy.
