Alternative Heat Therapy For Massage

20 Sep Alternative Heat Therapy For Massage

If you have ever received a massage with heat therapy, you know how heavenly it feels. Heat therapy can become an integral part of the services you offer your massage clients. External heat applied during a massage offers many benefits for your massage clients not to mention the feeling of deeper relaxation and bliss.

compressesTypical heat sources include hot water bottles placed on the client’s back, flat hot stones, dry hot packs and moist hot packs. You may have seen moist hot packs such as hydrocollators or thermal soft-moist packs, which are heated up by boiling them in a hydrocollator unit or plugged in. Our massage school offers an alternative heat source – Thai herbal compresses. These natural bundles wrapped in fabric contain a selection of natural herbs, flowers and roots taking you to an aromatic journey while relaxing your muscles, reducing inflammation, dissolving anxiety and relieving pain.

These compresses are steam heated. The therapist can directly massage clients with the compresses, offering an amazing and unique way to apply heat with massage that feel so deliciously good for the client.

Thai herbal compresses can be used for self-massage, injury recovery, stress management, pain relief, and sinus relief. The compresses are a healing addition to your at-home wellness practice, as well as recommended for Physical Therapists, Massage Therapists, Acupuncturists, Herbalists, Yoga Therapists, Yoga Teachers, Reiki and Energy workers, Cranial Sacral practitioners, Reflexologists, and estheticians.

Thai Herbal Compresses have been used in Thailand for over 2,500 years to relieve pain, relax muscles, reduce inflammation, and dissolve anxiety. These compresses contain 12 different Thai herbs, flowers, and roots, imported from Thailand, that are wrapped in fabric, steam heated, and then applied to the body for pain relief and tension reduction. Our compresses are superior and unique because they have been hand-selected by professionals in the industry – by Thai Yoga Massage professionals who use these compresses every day in their sessions as well as recommend them for at-home use to their patients.

Good for the client, good for you.
