Thai hot herbal compress body massage


Based on the holistic principles of Ayurvedic and traditional Chinese medicine, Thai herbalism is an ancient tradition still practiced today with the Thai hot herbal compress body massage being a deeply relaxing and aromatic massage.

Medicinal herbs are blended, wrapped and tied in ‘dumplings’ made from unbleached cotton which are then steamed to release their healing and revitalising oils. The warm dumplings are kneaded, rolled and massaged in to the body with the warm heat and oils radiating through the tissues and then absorbed in to the body. Each client has their own set of dumplings, and they are used only once. After the massage they can be taken away to use as exfoliaters in the shower.

“SJ Whittaker (Telford) Highly professional treatments in a welcoming and comfortable environment, from a warm and caring person. I have some complex health issues which my regular aromatherapy hot stone massage really helps. Plus, after, I float out, feeling soooo much better afterwards. I can’t recommend Janine at Light Harmony Holistic Therapy highly enough!.”
