What Is Wood Therapy?

Wood therapy, also known as Madero Therapy, is a 100% natural and non-invasive technique originating in Columbia. Using specially shaped wooden tools, the treatment targets particular regions of muscle, fat and cellulite, stimulating the lymphatic drainage system and thereby eliminating toxins.

Beyond just aiding in fat reduction, Madero Therapy is great for sculpting the body and reducing the prominence of cellulite. It can even help reduce fluid retention and the related pain, ultimately improving the affected area’s appearance.

The Benefits

  • Reducing the appearance of cellulite: Wood therapy may help to break down fat deposits and improve circulation, which can reduce the appearance of cellulite.

  • Improving skin texture and tone: The massage techniques used in wood therapy can help to improve blood flow and stimulate collagen production, leading to smoother and more even skin.

  • Relieving muscle tension and pain: Wood therapy can be used to target specific areas of the body where there is tension or pain, helping to relax muscles and reduce discomfort.

  • Enhancing lymphatic drainage: The massage movements involved in wood therapy can help to stimulate the lymphatic system, which is responsible for removing waste and toxins from the body.

  • Contouring and shaping the body: By using different sized and shaped wooden tools, wood therapy can help to sculpt and contour the body, creating a more toned and defined appearance.

Overall, wood therapy is a natural and holistic treatment that can provide a range of benefits for the body, skin, and overall well-being.
