Sa-Wan Thai Herbal Massage
A traditional Thai massage treatment which combines Swedish massage strokes and Thai stretching with warm herbal compresses to help relax, detoxify, increase blood flow and stimulate the lymphatic system. The muslin compresses are filled with Thai herbs and spices including lemongrass, turmeric, prai, kaffir lime, camphor, and tamarind. This blend of herbs is the traditional recipe of the Wat Po temple in Bangkok. This special blend of herbs helps to relieve muscle and joint pain, increase blood circulation and nourish and revitalize the skin. The Sa-Wan Thai Herbal compresses have stimulating benefits that penetrate deep into muscles and tissues for anti-inflammatory purposes and therapeutic healing. It is used to provide the same type of stimulation as acupressure along energy channels, known as Sen Sib lines in Thailand. It is pressed along the Sen Sib lines, or acupressure zones of the body, in a series of motions that include: a pressing with steady downward pressure; a back and forth motion; a circular motion; and a dragging motion which is used to increase blood flow and lymphatic drainage.
