“As a massage therapist, I love bodywork. I once received a bamboo massage treatment, where I was first hit with palm leaves on my back before the massage started. Of course, that startled me. Then, I was massaged with the bamboo sticks, which did not feel good at all. The therapist later admitted that she was not fully trained on the bamboo therapy and wasn’t quite sure what she was doing.”—Angela Avellino, spa director, The Spa at Fearrington at The Fearrington House Inn (Pittsboro, NC)
