~ Course Description ~

The method of using Hot Herbal Compresses is inherited from local Thai wisdom and Old School Doctors. 
The Herbal Compress contains a combination of traditional Thai Herbs and is heated in a steamer. The warm bundles are applied directly to the skin during a massage session.

The Compresses can be used on almost any part of the body, depending on where the illness, pain or discomfort is - such as legs, feet, knees, back, waist, hip, shoulder, arm & hands, stomach and side of the body.

The blend of traditional herbs are used to relieve sprains and strained muscles and tendons, stiffness in joints, inflammation and also stimulating blood circulation. The compresses have a relaxing and invigorating effect on the body and mind, while simultaneously soothing sore and over-worked muscles and giving a boost to the body's energy levels. The aromatherapy effect from herbs such as ginger, galangal, kaffir lime and turmeric are heavenly.

In a typical treatment, pressure and compression of the steamed Herbal Compresses are used to stimulate internal organs, relax tense muscles and calm the nervous system. Passive yogic-like stretching adjusts the skeletal structure, increases flexibility and restores movement. Ideal for those desiring deep relaxation, immunity boosting, release from stress, enhanced flexibility, as well as those seeking to increase their level of health, well-being and vitality.
