Thai Hot Herbal Compress
About Hot Herbal Compress
In many areas of Thailand, additional relief is achieved through the use of Hot Herbal Compresses which are applied to the body independently, or during the course of a treatment session.
The compresses are made from a variety of fresh and dried herbs such as lemongrass, turmeric, eucalyptus, camphor, galangal, ginger, kaffir lime, tamarind leaves and other medicinal herbs.
The compresses are made by combining the materials into a bundle of cloth such as linen. Then they are steamed above a pot of boiling water until the desired temperature is attained, they are then applied with varying pressure to the body normally through clothes or a towel, but can also be applied to the skin directly generally tracing the paths of major energy lines, muscles and internal organs
It induces deep relaxation, relieves stress and fatigue, boosts both emotional and physical well being, improves circulation of blood and lymph and stimulates internal organs.
