Herbal healing has deep roots in Thai culture. Herbal heat compress is the best-known traditional therapy. This dates back to ancient times when it was the secret healing technique of Buddhist monks, local herbal healers and midwives. The herbal heat compress contains numerous healing herbs that complement the massage. The treatment begins with a deep-pressure Thai massage, then a unique poultice of steamed fresh local herbal ingredients applied to help sooth and relax muscle tension and other aches and pains.
Aromatic camphor in the compress eases respiration. Traditional Thai medicine uses herbal heat compression for the treatment of sprains, muscle pain, bruises and swelling. The combination of herbs we use in this massage has been developed over the years and is a secret blend passed down from generation to generation.
