Herbal Compresses with each Thai Massage

Herbal compresses are gently steamed and add heat to your body's tissues and energy lines.  The beautiful medicinal properties of the herbs (ginger, turmeric, kaffir lime leaf and peel, tamarind, lemongrass, camphor, calamus and cassumar ginger) warm and soothe muscle tension, calm nerves and relax your mind with aromatic goodness. The herbs penetrate deep into your body for improved therapeutic benefit of your Thai massage.

These are often used in spas in Thailand and here is the US. Sometimes compresses are viewed as "fluff" additions but they are an extremely beneficial addition to your massage and unique to Carolina Thai Healing Arts. Liz Kriz has been working with compresses for many years and now custom makes seasonal compress or orders directly from Thailand where they are hand-made.
