Body Contouring (aka Sculpting) - Wood tools are used mildly aggressively moving toward 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.

Breaking Down Fat -
 Wood therapy rollers are used aggressively by going back and forth consistently to break down fat and restructure tight tissue in desired areas.

Popular tools that are used include ropes with wood rollers and stick rollers.

Reduce Appearance of Cellulite - Surprisingly, wood tools have also been found to help reduce the appearance of cellulite which is done by restructuring tight fascia tissue, which is what gives the dimple-like appearance.

Wood rollers are typically used aggressively going back and forth in a small area.

Drain the Lymphatic System - Wood therapy sculpting and rolling tools have become popular for helping drain the lymphatic system of bodily toxins.

This is often done using a single tool and moving upward toward the heart or armpit area where lymph nodes are.
