Hot Herbal Compress Massage

Healing Hot Herbal Compresses 

What is a Thai Herbal Massage session and what are the benefits? Thai Herbal massage uses hot herbal compresses that are applied to the body to alleviate pain and inflammation by opening skin pores and transferring medicating heat to the muscles, joints and energy lines. Imagine being covered in herbal heating pads! Ahhhh


Herbal compress therapy helps to harmonize and relax the body, to loosen energy blockages. Smelling and inhaling the herb-infused vapors also induces deep relaxation. The herbs have a balancing effect on the mind, and help to reduce stress. Using hot compresses on the chest, throat and sinuses can also loosen mucus and open up the nasal passages.


The compresses are homemade with loving care, using an ancient Thai recipe which includes the following:


Cassumunar Ginger: helps with inflammation and trauma. It is beneficial for coagulation, contusions, sprains and strains.


Galangal: Nourishes the tissue, improves circulation and fortifies the blood.


Lemongrass: Calming to the heart and mind and relieves stress. Aids in dispersing stagnation and moves the blood.


Kaffir lime leaf: Beneficial for it's antiseptic properties and it's ability to clear toxins from the blood. It is a tonic for the heart-mind.


Camphor: Opens the pores and mucus membrane. Opens sinuses and relieves congestion. Has both a stimulating and calming effect on the mind.

Clove: Used for pain relief and it also purifies the blood. 

Cinnamon: Aids in the ability to move and thin the blood which assists in the body's ability to rid itself of accumulated toxins.

Nutmeg: Calming to the nerves and calms anxiety/nervous energy
