thai hot herbal compress massage
Herbal Compress is inherited from local Thai wisdom of old school doctors. The Herbal Compress contains a combination of traditional Thai herbs and is heated in a herbal steamer. The warm bundles are applied either directly to the skin or on light clothes during a massage session.
The blend of traditional herbs is used to relieve sprains and strained muscles and tendons, stiffness of the joints, inflammation, as well as to stimulate blood circulation.
The herbal compresses have a relaxing and invigorating effect on the body and the mind, while simultaneously soothing sore and overworked muscles and giving a boost to the body’s energy level.
For each massage sessions 2 bundles will be used. Every bundle can be used up to 3 times and can only be used for the same person due to hygiene reasons.
I offer two options:
- Thai Yoga Massage on the mat using hot herbal compresses. Thanks to the herbal ingredients and the heat, you will enjoy the light stretches, the slow movements and the acupressure even more, making it a unique relaxing experience for your body and your mind.
In order to avoid any possible stains left by the herbal balls, I will provide you with comfortable, light and loose clothing, that you can use for the massage session.
- Oil Massage with hot herbal compresses on a massage table. A highly relaxing experience, thanks to the smells of the herbal ingredients and the heat. Moreover, the heat allows the therapist to go deeper into the tissue to loosen persistent knots without damaging them and with minimal pain compared to deep tissue massage.
- single appointment: 70 min. € 95 (you can take the herbal stamps with you).
- package of 3 appointments: € 240 (= € 80 / 70 min.)
How does it work?
You can book the first appointment and decide after the massage if you want to take the herbal balls home for your personal use. In this case you will pay € 95. Or you can book 2 more appointments for the price of the whole package of 3 (€ 240 in total).
