The spa industry is embracing bamboo in spa treatments. Bamboo fusion massage, which originated in the U.S., was created by Nathalie Cecilia of France. The treatment at Touch of Thai in Cayman incorporates rice-covered bamboo pieces that are used for deep-tissue massages. Cecilia developed the technique because it does not hurt the masseuse's hands and wrists as much as traditional massages, and guests enjoy the sensation.
