Thai Herbal Compress
Originally created in Thailand during the middle ages, the Thai herbal compress has been used for treatments for centuries. Typically they were used on soldiers returning from battle to get immediate responses to inflammation from wounds and injuries. They were also used for treating soreness and pain from tired, achy muscles, joints from conditions such as arthritis, fibromyalgia and soft tissue injuries.
The compress contains traditional Thai herbs wrapped in cloth, heated then applied to the skin. Special compress balls are also available that do not require heat
and some for use at room temperature. The herbs in the compress possess properties that are anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, astringent and antioxidant.
The therapist presses the heated compress along the muscles and joints allowing the heat and
affect of the herbs to be absorbed deeply into the tissue activating speed healing. These specially selected herbs have drawing properties that reduce
inflammation by removing built up toxins. Clients also benefit from inhaling the intoxicating aroma of the herbs while
breathing deeply during the treatment.
Treatment takes place on a therapy table. Client is dressed in underwear. Body is covered at all times.
