Thai herbal compress massage
The use of Herbal heated compresses is a traditional method of therapy which has been used for centuries throughout Thailand to relieve weary bodies and minds.
The hot herbal compresses contain numerous aromatic herbs tightly bound in pure cotton which are then soaked and steamed to infuse the contents of the herbs. The compresses are then applied to the body with Eastern Massage techniques using light pressure of patting, pounding, kneading and rolling movements along with gentle, but deeply effective massage.
Energy channels in the body known as ‘Sen lines’ are treated to enter the body into deep relaxation, relieving stress and promoting emotional and physical wellbeing.
The compresses possess herbs such as, Lemongrass, Ginger, Turmeric and Kaffir Lime which are anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, astringent and antioxidant.
The heat from the compress, carries these herbal essences, deep into the pores of the skin, releasing their healing benefits, and stimulating the vital organs and senses.
The treatment helps to soothe sore muscles, increase circulation, relieves tension, promotes relaxation, improve mood, ease congestion, relieves stress and fatigue and aids sleep, amongst many other healing benefits
This massage is not suitable if you are sensitive to heat, on medication that can cause a sensitivity to heat, or if you are suffering from sunburn.
