Herbal Compress Massage
This is also known as Thai Stem Massage or Thai Herbal Massage. Essentially, a pair of herbal compresses (herbs wrapped in linen) are used. As one is being steamed, the other is tapped, pressed, or rolled onto the body. It is combined with Relaxation Massage techniques.
Sometimes, there may be a selection of herbs to choose from. The ingredients are said to induce deep relaxation, boost emotional and physical well-being, and stimulate various body systems and internal organs. While the process will certainly do this, I have not seen scientific evidence that the compress ingredients will do so. However, it is certainly a worthwhile addition to relaxation therapy, just for the aromatherapy aspects.
The compresses may be reused (for the same person only, please) several times, so you are free to take them with you after your treatment, if you wish.
Be sure to enquire, as I need to have the compresses on hand for your session, and may need to order some.
