Hot herbal compress is a special method of massage treatment, which has remained unchanged since the beginning of the Ayutthaya period. Hot herbal pouches are used to address chronic problems, such as back pain. They also aid the body to increase energy flow, improve circulation, relax muscles and stimulate nerves.
This technique stimulates the same way as acupressure, and is used to for tender or sensitive areas that cannot be massaged directly. Applying hot herbal pouches on the same points will provide similar benefits. The pores of the skin open from the heat, allowing essential oils from the herbs to heal the body from deeper levels. The compress contains a special herbs mixture of ginger, lemongrass, tamarind, camphor, and kaffir lime.
