Thai herbal (Luk Pra Ko) Massage Therapy

I have recently trained in Thai herbal compress massage, and am now able to offer this luxurious treatment from my Therapy Room at the Beauty Cave in Long Melford.

I have fallen in love with this treatment, and really enjoy using the large steamed cloth dumpling tools filled with many theraputic herbs, which once soaked and steamed, omit the most heavenly smells and oils that infuse with the warm massage oil that I first apply to your skin. The heat from the compresses penetrates deeply, and allows the muscles and joints of the body greater movement and flexilbility. The oils from the herbs are absorbed through the skin and used in the body to facilitate further release of energy blockages thereby improving energy imbalances with in the body.

The herbs have many medicinal properties - anti inflamitory, astringent and antibacterial to name a few. The aromatic herbs such as the camphor, lemongrass and patchouli relieve stress, congestion and invigorates.

In thai medicine the bodys vital life energy flows through sen channels. This energy stimulates the physical, mental and emotional processes of the body. When the channels flow freely then the body is functioning correctly. In chinese medicine this energy is called 'Qi' and in indian medicine it is called prana. Thai massage also works over the main sen lines up and down the body, with the heated compress as well as with the hands, helping to release blockages and stimulate stagnant areas. The specific techniques used during this treatment will also help with the lymphatic flow.

Below I have listed some of the many benefits of this treatment:

* Improves muscle injuries, imbalances and pain
* Improves blood and lymph circulation
* Improves physical and mental energy by releasing energy blockages
* Improves joint flexilbility and range of motion
* Helps boost immune system
* Lowers blood pressure
* Encourages relaxation
* Prevents and alleviates stress & anxiety
* Calms the mind, improves concentration and positive thinking
* Speeds healing
* Improves movement and function of fascia (body's connective tissue)
* Decreases cold and flu symptoms
* Eases menstrual cramps and associated pain
* May help prevent migranes and tension headaches
* Helps with insomnia and other sleep disorders

As a little added bonus, you will be given your compresses to take away with you to use in the bath for the following 3 days. They are great hung over the taps to allow the water to run through them. This will give you maximum benefit of the theraputic herbs, and a relaxing fragrant bath, along with a little parcel of chamolimile tea bags to enjoy whilst soaking, for a little added relaxation.
