What on earth is a Thai Herbal Compress Massage?
Thai Herbal Compress is a full body treatment that dates back almost 5,000 years. It was a time when the knowledge of plants, including their effects and benefits through ingestion or application on the body were researched and passed down from one generation to the next.
This therapy, and the herbs used, were designed to relieve pain and inflammation and induce relaxation.
A selection of herbs and sesame seeds (or coconut flakes) are wrapped in a sheet of muslin and secured into what looks like a compress (dumpling). I use LEMONGRASS (promotes circulation/relaxing), TURMERIC (anti-inflammatory), GINGER (improves circulation), KAFFIR LIME LEAVES (anti-inflammatory/anti-bacterial/joint pain/relaxing), LAVENDER (analgesic/anti-inflammatory/calming), EPSOM SALT (remove toxins), CAMPHOR OIL (heating/improves circulation/pain relief)
After a gentle stretching and the targeting of acupressure points, the STEAMED COMPRESSES are pressed (massaged) along the meridians of the body using various techniques. The warm compresses not only provide relaxation, they allow the pores to open and provide the opportunity for the healing properties of the herbs to take effect.
THE EXPERIENCE IS AROMATHERAPY, THERMAL THERAPY, HERBAL THERAPY AND A MASSAGE IN ONE TREATMENT!!
Thai Herbal Compress Massage promotes deep relaxation, relieves muscle aches, pains and strains, alleviates back pain, migraines and anxiety and improves blood and lymph circulation which promote healing.
