What To Expect?

  • Sticking to traditional techniques, a muslin cloth is infused with herbs and spices and then steamed to release their medicinal properties.
  • Your therapist will then move the compress balls across your body, creating a series of circular motions to aid the release of toxins and penetrate heat into the tissues.

Know before you go

  • Suffer from plant allergies? Just ask your therapist what herbs are used when you book and they’ll be able to tailor your treatment accordingly.
  • You may find yourself in a modified yoga pose during treatment—the practitioner may gently manipulate your limbs, improving flexibility and leaving you feeling nice and bendy.

How Does It Work?

Herbal Compress Massage is well-known for its relaxation qualities, but this flower-bursting pick-me-up can also improve blood circulation and promote cell growth. As the heat of the muslin cloth warms the skin, blood vessels across the body begin to dilate which kickstarts the efficiency of different internal organs.

Herbs used in the compress can do different things for different parts of the body: lemongrass and kaffir lime boosts immune system, turmeric contains anti-inflammatories and tamarind can improve skin complexion.

The History

Herbal Compress Massage has been practiced since the 14th century. It was noted that the Thai royalty would indulged in the treatment, as well as soldiers suffering from muscular pain after battle.
