Objective
Thai people have been using dried herbs to treat many different ailments in the body for hundreds of years. Typically, Thai herbal compresses are steamed and either applied through clothing or directly on the skin. Hot herbal compress massage (Luk Pra Kob) is deeply comforting and warm. It promotes relaxation while soothing aching or tired muscles and stiff joints and helps to increase the flow of energy in the body.

By using techniques of patting, gliding, rolling and pounding, essential oils are released from the heated compresses penetrating and absorbing deeply to relax and detoxify the body. This can benefit those with conditions such as inflamed joints, arthritis, fibromyalgia, soft tissue injuries, and has profound effects on the body.

After this hands-on 3-day intensive workshop, students will leave with a comprehensive knowledge of Thai herbal compress bundle making and take home their personalized herbal compresses.
