Thai herbal compress massage has been used for centuries in Thailand as part of the traditional massage. A mix of relaxing, cleaning and activating Thai herbs such as coriander, lavender and fresh ginger are bound in a linen cloth. The herbal compress will be steam-heated and applied to the body. The healing effect of the herbs and the heat of the herbal compress will loosen the muscles and increase blood flow and circulation. Thai herbal therapy also aids to relief pain, inflammation and tension.
