Thai Herbal Poultice Massage

This herbal therapy was designed to relieve pain and inflammation. A selection of therapeutic herbs, including prai, ginger, turmeric and lemongrass, are wrapped in a muslin compress, steamed and then applied to the body in gentle pressing, circular and rolling movements. The steaming process softens the compress and the aroma intensifies as the essential oils in the contents are released.

Traditional Ayurvedic herbal poultice is classified under “swedana” (heating and sweating treatments) and is an integral part of traditional Ayurvedic treatment.

Herbal Poultice is often combined with an oil massage leaving the client feeling soothed and the heat and herbs deepening the experience.
