Thai on the table with the hot herbal compress. Turmeric, Lemongrass, Ginger, Lime, Camphor and more! Nourish your client's body with therapeutic heat and medicinal steam. Herbal heat penetrates deep into tense and tired muscles that might be too tender to touch. The comforting warmth and herbs help with conditions such as arthritis, headaches, poor circulation and pulled muscles, tendons and ligaments. The air in your treatment room fills with aromatic steam that soothes many of the upper respiratory ailments that are especially prevalent as the seasons change. Prerequisite: Licensed massage therapist
This course is dedicated to USING the Thai Hot Herbal Compress and offers a unique, full-body table treatment for the major muscle groups and movement pathways. *Floor bodyworkers will find all techniques translate easily to the mat. At the end of this course you will be able to select and demonstrate basic compress handling techniques, identify all necessary equipment for performing a safe and effective session and define best practices for adding this new tool to your menu of services. We will give a demonstration and instructions for making your own compress outside of class, however, this is NOT A COMPRESS MAKING CLASS. We use pre-made compresses from Thailand that will be available for sale after class along with recommendations for other suppliers.
