Thai Herbal Heat Therapy
Handmade Aromatherapy Compress
This is the first time offered here in Kingston, Ontario! Come experience a deep heat massage using a traditional handmade herbal compress. Incorporated into a traditional Thai massage, enjoy the benefits of aromatherapy, heat and acupressure. The compresses are heated using a steamer and then applied directly to the skin or over the clothes. The heat penetrates the pores stimulating blood flow, relieving soreness and pain while increasing flexibility. It also helps with rapid recovery and nourishes the body’s tissues. When applied to joints, it effectively softens the connections between bones and tendons or used on the abdomen to encourage digestion.
The compress is handmade using a blend of dried herbs ranging from ginger, cinnamon, kaffir leaves, cloves, turmeric, camphor, lemongrass to jasmine; creating a wonderful aromatic experience. The herb blends can also be customized to suit your needs. They are also reusable, recyclable and compostable. A set of compresses can be reused for up to 4 sessions.
The herbs retain the heat from the steam to deeply penetrate and relax the muscles which are excellent for:
- stiff, sore or pulled and over worked muscles
- back pain
- Premenstrual pain and cramps
- chronic pain
- gastrointestinal disorders
- skin conditions
- anxiety and stress
- excellent for post-partum
- congestion in lungs and sinuses
