Healing Thai Herbal Compress

Have you tried a therapeutic massage treatment at Orchid Day Spa with our healing Thai Herbal Compress? Thai Herbal Compress have been used as a healing technique in Thailand for more than 5000 years.

The Thai herbal compress technique offers several potential health benefits: It induces deep relaxation, relieves stress and fatigue, boosts both emotional and physical well-being, assists alignment and postural integrity of the body, improves circulation of blood and lymph and stimulates the internal organs.

What is a Herbal Compress

At Orchid Day Spa our compress balls have been made by workers of the Queen of Thailand in the North Eastern Province of Ubon Ratchathani and are made up of of a mixture of several herbs including lemongrass, prai, turmeric, kaffir lime, camphor, tamarind and eucalyptus.

These herbs possess properties that are anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, astringent and antioxidant and address common issues like sprains, bruises and sore muscles, cleanse and heal the skin by promoting cell growth, and aid upper respiratory ailments such as bronchitis, asthma and the common cold.

How does it work?

After any massage treatment your therapist will heat four of the compress balls in a special steamer. The amazing smell of the herbs and the essential oils in the treatment room sends clients into even deeper relaxation! Your therapist will over the course of 30 minutes apply the hot compress directly to pressure points all over the body. As the pores in the skin open and allow the herbs to take effect, ailments such as stiff, sore or pulled muscles and ligaments, back pain, migraines, stress and anxiety are almost instantly relieved.
