Herbal Compress Massage

This is also known as Thai Stem Massage or Thai Herbal Massage. Essentially, a pair of herbal compresses (herbs wrapped in linen) are used. As one is being steamed, the other is tapped, pressed, or rolled onto the body. It is combined with Relaxation Massage techniques.

Sometimes, there may be a selection of herbs to choose from. The ingredients are said to induce deep relaxation, boost emotional and physical well-being, and stimulate various body systems and internal organs. While the process will certainly do this, I have not seen scientific evidence that the compress ingredients will do so. However, it is certainly a worthwhile addition to relaxation therapy.
