Many people notice (from time to time or more frequently) a feeling of heaviness in the arms and legs due to fluid retention that can cause swelling.
I often see this symptom in pilgrims. Long walks, the weight they carry, high temperatures and certain previous conditions may be the cause.
A bamboo massage can be of great help in these cases. This is a bodywork and relaxation technique in which bamboo canes are used as the main tool for friction, pressure and percussion.
I tend to use juniper, fennel, geranium, rose palm, lemon, cypress, grapefruit, sage, cedar, or eucalyptus oils when providing this service.
