Thai Herbal COMPRESS THERAPY

 

Thai Herbal Bundle Therapy in Gainesville, Florida

Thai Herbal Bundles are herbal compresses that are integrated into a Thai Massage session. They can be either hot or cold depending on their use (hot or steamed compresses are often used to decrease stress, increase circulation, and alleviate restriction and tension in the body, while cold compresses are used to reduce inflammation and soothe migraine headaches).

Within each bundle is a special blend of at least ten different medicinal plants and herbs, including some that are seasonally and locally harvested. Examples of the more common plants used are: 

  • turmeric 
  • rosemary
  • lemongrass
  • ginger
  • lavender 
  • peppermint
  • chamomile
  • sage

When the herbal bundles are used on the body, the medicinal qualities of the plants are absorbed through the skin, infusing the treated areas with their therapeutic properties.

This treatment is recommended for anyone experiencing chronic or acute pain/tension, high levels of stress or toxicity in the body, or for someone who just wants to deepen the relaxing and therapeutic effects of their Thai Massage session. Some specific conditions that may be especially benefited with the use of Thai Herbal Bundles are: 

  • Sciatica
  • Frozen shoulder
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Digestive complaints
  • Arthritis
  • Stress/anxiety
  • Recovery from injury/surgery
  • Poor circulation

Another added bonus of integrating the herbal bundles into your session is their wonderful aromatherapeutic benefits - they make the treatment room smell divine!
