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.

Thai Herbal compress (also known as Luk Pra Ko - translated as herbal pressing sphere) has been used for hundreds of years in Thailand as a remedy for sore aching muscles, stress relief, exhaustion and other ailments. This is truly a wonderful treatment that is still little know in Europe. Herbs are wrapped in balls of cotton muslin, steams to release essentials oils and aromas, and the applied along the sen sib or energy lines of the body.
Compress Massage aims to loosen blockages and restore the body’s natural equilibrium and balance. It also relaxes the muscles and stimulates the flow of both blood and lymph. Compresses are excellent for stiff, sore or pulled muscles and ligaments; back pain; arthritis; chronic pain or injury; disorders of the internal organs; skin diseases, migraines, and chronic stress or anxiety. A Hot Herbal Compress adds to these benefits the healing effects of therapeutic herbs in patting, pounding and kneading actions. This traditional treatment has been practised to soothe muscle tension and stiffness in key areas. The combination of heat and medicinal herbs, is absorbed by the body to help reduce aches.
