Video Series: Massaging with Thai Compresses

Thai herbal compresses are used at various points during a Thai Yoga Massage.  It helps create more energy flow into different parts of the body because the heat increases blood flow which then allows greater flexibility and mobility. 

The video begins with the giver of the massage gently compressing along the length of the receiver’s spins.  First, she uses the heels of her hands and then switches to her forearms and elbows.  Using, two herbal compresses the therapist works the length of the spine again, gently compressing the Thai herbal compresses into the recipient’s back, gluts, down the backs of the legs and even the soles of the feet.
