Thai Herbal Hot Compress Massage
This treatment is the ultimate relaxation and overall it’s just divine.
Thai Herbal Compress is a heated muslin ball of aromatic herbs and spices used for centuries throughout Thailand to relieve tired and weary bodies and minds
The compresses are soaked, steamed and then used on the body by either patting, pounding or rolling them onto the skin. The heat from the compress carries the herbal essences and essential oils deep into the skin, underlying tissues and organs. The treatment brings about a deep sensation of comfort and warmth whilst stimulating the body to detoxify and heal itself.
Note: If you have skin allergies to any herbs/essential oils please let me know when booking.
