Shen Mantra Herbal Compress Massage


In traditional Thai Medicine, herbs are used to complement massages that treat illnesses. The herbal compress treatment, also known as "Herbal Heat Revival", is believed to calm nerves and redirect the energy, that is vital to good health. The original Thai Herbal heat compress is known since the Thai-Burmese battles of the AYUTTHAYA period (over 200 years ago).

 

Herbal heated compresses give a modern twist on a traditional heat treatment that soothes and removes muscle tension. Using patting and pounding techniques, the treatment exfoliates, softens and moisturizes, purifies and detoxifies, relaxes and breaks down muscle tensions.

 

Up to 20 different herbs make up these wonderful compresses renowned for their effects such as invigorating, relaxing, purifying and relief of aches and pains.

 

They soften, moisturize and nourish the skin whilst providing a blissfully warm but deep and relaxing treatment.

 

Hot Compresses provide the same type of stimulation as Acupressure, and are used to stimulate tender or sensitive areas that cannot be massaged directly; for example, the back may be too painful for direct Acupressure, but Hot Herbal Compresses on the same points will provide similar benefits. Ground fresh and dried herbs are wrapped into a muslin cloth, and then steamed to release.
