Event Description

Take your massages to the next level by adding Thai Herbal Compresses (Luk Pra Kob) to your treatments. Thai Herbal Compresses have been used in conjunction with massage and bodywork in Thailand for generations. You will learn the properties of each herb used in a Thai Herbal compress ball as well as how to make your own from fresh ingredients or dried herbs. After making your own compresses in class, you will learn how to safely steam them and techniques to incorporate them into your sessions, whether it is a table massage or a Thai massage on a floor mat. This is the best smelling class you have ever taken! You will leave with 2 compress balls, an inhaler, and a photo manual.

Thai Massage

Thai massage works the relaxing effects of massage, the stretching of yoga, and the spiritual wellness of energy work into one session. The modality is more physically dynamic than a typical massage. Sessions are performed on a floor mat with the client fully clothed. The practitioner helps the client through yoga-based, assisted stretches while pressing on energy and pressure points along the body. Because of it’s similarity to yoga, some people refer to Thai massage as “Thai yoga massage” as well.

Along with teaching the modality as a whole, Thai massage training can teach you how to improve your flow with better sequencing, incorporate the classic Thai herbal balls or start using your bare feet as tools. You can also learn how to adapt Thai techniques for table massage or work with special circumstances like pregnancy and disabilities.
