Discover the ancient art of ‘Luk Pra Kob’ (ลูกประคบ) or Thai Herbal Compress Massage and add a new dimension to your sessions. The heated compress, medicinal plant ingredients, and stretching and massage techniques forge an incredibly therapeutic and luxurious healing experience!
Together we will take a journey into the use and application of Thai medicinal herbs, the herbal compress, and how you can integrate them to promote healing and deep relaxation. We will steam them and apply them to the Thai Energy lines or Sen using various gliding, rolling and pressing techniques to reduce inflammation, improve circulation and provide pain relief. We’ll also practice advanced options for client positioning, stretching and compressing to release the Myofascial Meridians.
The Thai Herbal Compress has been used in conjunction with massage and bodywork in Thailand for generations and can be a standalone treatment or integrated into any session.
This is the best smelling class you will take!
