At Prani Glow Day Spa, we have incorporated Thai acupressure massage, organic massage oil and the application of hot Herbal compress balls into my massage therapy to give my clients optimum health benefits. The Herbal compress balls used in my practice are organic only and imported from Thailand.
Our fusion Thai herbal compress massage begins with classic Thai massage techniques and massage oil to warm up the muscles for about 5 minutes. The herbal compress balls are placed in a steamer and steamed for 20 minutes prior to the massage session. Throughout the session the hot steamed herbal compress balls relax both body and mind while giving the body’s energy reserves a huge boost.
The hot herbal compress balls gradually release the healing benefits of their herbs into the skin. It is ideal for soothing pain, easing stiff, sore or sprained muscles and ligaments. The mixtures of herbs in the balls are able to alleviate some skin conditions, migraines, chronic stress and anxiety. They also help to cleanse and heal the skin by promoting cell growth.
Camphor, lemongrass, wild turmeric and other Thai traditional herbs release aromatic steam during the massage session, giving a great aromatherapy effect and relieving nasal congestion. The herbs are also anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, astringent and antioxidant. Heat helps to improve the condition of connective tissue, increase range of joint motion as well as increasing joint functionality and easing muscle fatigue.
At the end of the session clients will experience total relaxation, better mobility, and increased energy levels. Clients will receive greater benefits from Thai herbal compress massage than Deep tissue massage alone.
