01 May 5 benefits of Benefic Thai Herbal Compress Massage
Thai herbal compress massage is an ancient healing technique that dates back to the 14th Century Ayutthaya Kingdom in Siam and is integrated into the public health system in Thailand, meaning everyone there gets to benefit from it.
Benefic has brought this technique to New Zealand so we can also now reap the multitude of benefits offered by this ancient treatment.
So, what are the benefits of Benefic Thai Herbal Compress Massage?
1. A simple, effective way to get rid of pain
Thai herbal compress therapy has been used for nearly 5000 years to soothe muscle aches and reduce swelling. It does this through the use of a selection of therapeutic herbs such as prai, ginger, turmeric, lemongrass, camphor and tamarind – which are bundled together in accordance with ancient recipes, wrapped into a handmade compress and then steamed and applied to the body. The hot compresses are highly effective for alleviating pain, aches and arthritis and provide an alternative option for people who would rather not rely on over-the-counter pain medication.
2. A chance to unwind and recharge
The blend of herbs used in the compresses not only help with aches and pains in the body but also have a relaxing effect on the mind and provide you with a positive boost in energy. Therefore, after a treatment, you can return to your co-workers, friends and family feeling relaxed, invigorated and happy.
3. Beats the winter blues
During a treatment, aromas are inhaled via mucous membranes into the respiratory tract and lungs which make this technique very effective in aiding ailments such as bronchitis, asthma and the common cold. However, the benefits don’t have to stop once the treatment is over; you can take the compress home with you to use in the shower, in your home or in the garden – thus extending your sensory journey.
4. A complete treatment
Thai Herbal Compress Therapy is a unique technique which is becoming known around the world as a wholesome, complete treatment. This is due to the fact it combines aromatherapy, thermal therapy, herbal therapy and massage all into a single treatment. Whether offered in a spa or private practice, this technique provides a new, effective way for massage therapists to provide their clients with a variety of healing benefits.
5. Empowers others
This unique treatment provides multiple benefits for the customer and therapist alike. For example: just by holding the compresses in their hands, therapists receive the benefits from the therapeutic and relaxing properties of the herbs. Also, as the compresses are made in Thailand (using ethical standards) the benefits extend to the villages where they are made and therefore empower the women of these villages to provide for their families.
