Wood Therapy Body Contouring


In short, wood therapy uses a number of different wooden massage-like tools to help break down fat and cellulite. The wooden instruments are used to apply direct pressure to “problem areas” and essentially naturally eliminate excess body fat. The wood therapy we know today is actually based on an ancient Oriental wood manipulation that dates back hundreds of years!


Not really. They are technically two different types of treatments but have basically the same goals. Wood therapy helps to break down your body fat while body contouring helps to tighten your skin and improve elasticity. There is a wide variety of different body contouring therapies, some more surgical in nature than others.


This is a tough one because everyone’s body responds differently to certain therapies. There are also other factors like age, weight, and frequency of treatment to consider as well. But for me, I found it both super relaxing and helpful! I would typically go once a week after working out with my trainer because I found it really helped with loosening my tight muscles and helping to naturally rid my body of toxins.


There are a large number of benefits to getting wood therapy, which is why I made it a regular part of my workout and self-care routine. In addition to being super relaxing and stress-relieving, wood therapy can help with:

  • Loosening tight muscles

  • Breaking down cellulite and burning fat

  • Naturally eliminating toxins in your body

  • Speeding up your metabolism

  • Stimulating blood circulation and lymphatic drainage

  • and more!


Since wood therapy is a 100 percent natural, non-invasive holistic massage treatment, it is generally considered safe. However, as I mentioned you should always consult with your doctor or massage therapist prior to beginning any new treatments just to be absolutely sure that this type of treatment is right for you!


You may experience a bit of discomfort during your first few sessions because it is a new feeling for my body and also you have to work with your massage therapist to figure out the appropriate amount of pressure to apply (kind of like a regular massage too).

After a while you will feel relaxed both during and after your sessions. This natural way of implementing repetitive movements with the wooden tools to manipulate the stubborn areas of fat is surprisingly satisfying.


This is another tricky one because it all depends on how often you’re willing to go. But typically, you’re able to see a small difference right after your first treatment. But most people really start to see the effects between their third and fifth treatments.


Wood therapy is most effective as an ongoing treatment, similar to how regular massage therapy works. The more consistent you are with it, the more noticeable and longer-lasting the effects will be. However, the results that you experience will usually stick around for about three months after your last session which is great. So don’t worry if you miss a session or two, your progress won’t be lost!

“Thinking the faster that I go

The faster that I will reach my goal

The race is not given to the swift

But to the one who endure’th.”–from Slow Down by India Arie

In today’s society, speed is all the rage. 5G speed for our phones, internet speeds up to 200 Mbps, all of this puts us in the mindset to rush. We rush our healing, we rush our growth, we even try to rush our blessings from spirit. We put time restrictions on our lives and that is not how this life was intended to be lived. What if, for a few seconds before you said something or did something, you stopped. In that pause, you are able to breathe, center and consult yourself before you make the move. What if you allowed yourself to be in your emotions instead of rushing yourself through them?

Pauses occur when spirit is trying to get our attention. They also alert us to be still in God and stand by for instruction. Because we tend to be on the go and impatient, being still feels like a lack of action. What we fail to realize is that being still and doing nothing are not synonymous. Stillness allows for meditation and commune to get guidance on which way to go, what path to choose, and what move to make next. There is nothing wrong with pauses and moving slow. The key is balance. Just as we don’t want to rush, you don’t want to stay stagnant in the pause because things like fear can come in and cripple the vision. So as you move forward in your day, make sure you aren’t zooming your way through. Think of your favorite song, do you zoom through it? Of course you don’t! You take your time, savor every note, let every word seep into your spirit and cover you like a healing balm. You let that music move through you so you can dance, cry, scream or whatever that music pushes you to do. You let this music do its job and once you have gotten what you need from it, you cut it off and can move through your day refreshed and ready for whatever comes at you.

Your favorite song, like any beautiful piece of music, you cannot be rushed through. If you did, you would have an incoherent cacophony of noise.  Music is written with pauses, because it is the pauses that move the piece along, that help it emote the feelings of the composer and take the ear of the listener on a journey they never knew they needed. Treat your life as a magically and beautifully written orchestra. Know when to boom and when to be quiet. Know when to move quick and know when to slow down. Finally know when to pause, because the pause offers rest and guidance for you to continue through your orchestra smoothly.
