THAI HERBAL POULTICE MASSAGE:
Thai poultice massage is a technique that involves special poultices made of herbs and spices that are wrapped in cotton (muslin) and steam-heated. Steam heating allows the natural essential oils and aromas of the herbs and spices to be released into the air. The poultices are applied by placing the bag on the body in the form of compresses.
The blend of traditional Thai herbs used in these compresses have a relaxing and invigorating effect on the body and mind, soothing sore and overworked muscles while giving the body’s energy reserves a huge boost. *Choose from one of the following*
*Energy Boost- Soothes, relaxes & revitalizes with camphor crystals, eucalyptus leaves, ginger root, kaffir lime leaves and lemongrass

*Pain Relief- Helps with muscle and joint pain with calamus, galangal, ginger root and turmeric
*Aromatherapy- Soothes, relaxes, helps relieve anxiety and stress with basil leaves, jasmine flowers, peppermint leaves, lavender and chamomile
