1. Body Contouring (aka Sculpting)
Wood tools are best known for their benefits in body contouring, where you can "sculpt" your body shape by moving blood and smoothening skin.
Wood tools are used mildly aggressively moving in 1 direction to sculpt portions of the body. This works by moving blood and breaking down fat in certain areas.
Popular places include the thighs, glutes, stomach, and more using a variety of different wood therapy tools.
2. Breaking Down Fat
Wood tools are also heavily used to break down large areas of fat and restructure the shape of fat.
To break down fat, wood therapy rollers are used aggressively by going back and forth consistently to break up the fat cells and restructure tight tissue in desired areas.
Popular tools that are used include ropes with wood rollers and stick rollers.
3. Reduce Appearance of Cellulite
Surprisingly, wood therapy tools and similar massage techniques have been found to help reduce the appearance of cellulite as well.
This is done by restructuring tight fascia tissue, which is what gives the dimple-like appearance on skin.
With consistent use of 3-5x per week, wood therapy tools will give a reduced appearance of cellulite. While it will require maintenance to keep the reduced appearance of cellulite, you can still miss a few wood therapy sessions without worrying!
The correct way to reduce cellulite using wood tools is by aggressively going back and forth in a small area, with a stick roller or cup, for 5-10 minutes before moving to the next part of the body.
4. Drain the Lymphatic System
Wood therapy can also be used to help drain the lymphatic system, which flushes your body of toxins.
This is often done using a single tool, starting at your ankles and moving upward slowly toward the heart or armpit area where lymph nodes are.
Doing so will move the flow of lymph liquid (along with bodily toxins) toward your lymph nodes where your body can dispose of these through perspiration, bowel movements, urine, and your breath.
5. Tone and Smooth Skin
Last but not least, a very notable benefit of wood therapy is the ability to tone and smooth out skin, giving a more "full" look.
This process is done by applying mild pressure with a stick roller or cup, typically on the stomach, hips, and thighs.
The goal is to move the tools back and forth in the desired area for 5-10 minutes daily.
