Thai Poultice


ENJOY THE BENEFITS OF A TEA INFUSED MASSAGE

Thai Poultice massage is a technique that involves our custom made tea-infused herbal poultice containing lavender, chamomile and green tea. The herbs are wrapped in cotton and steam- heated to allow the natural essential oils and aromas to be released . During the massage the poultices provide moist and nutrient-rich relaxation to the skin and muscles. While offering comfort, the poultices also work with the body’s natural energy to promote harmonization of the body’s energy flow.  They do this by loosening energy blockages and stimulating blood circulation.

 

Also incorporated into the Thai Poultice massage is Thai Table Massage that incorporates stretching, compression, meditation, and acupressure.

 

WHERE DID IT COME FROM?

Thai poultice massage originated in Thailand during the Ayutthaya period (14th-18th centuries).  The poultices were used on soldiers returning home with painful, weary muscles. They were applied directly to the body in a kneading and systematic manner.  The ingredients in the poultices can also aide in reducing inflammation.

 

WHO SHOULD GET IT?

Thai Poultice is great for anyone leading an active lifestyle, especially anyone feeling sore and achy would truly benefit from the healing and comfort of the warm poultices being worked into the muscles.  It is not recommended for pregnant women and those with rheumatoid arthritis should get approval from doctor before receiving this service.
