The Thai Herbal Compress, an Ancient Aromatherapy Technique

The Thai Herbal Compress, an Ancient Aromatherapy Technique

Combining the benefits of essential oils and aromatherapy into spa practices has a long tradition, especially in traditional Thai medicine. For example, the Luk Pra Kob or Thai Herbal Compress has been used for 4000 years in Thailand and variations of this practice can be found in other traditional forms of medicine throughout Asia. You may be thinking that the Thai Herbal Compress is a kind of massage with essential oils, but that is far from the case. While it does involve the use of herbs and them soaking into the skin along the lines of energy or sen lines, it is markedly different than getting a Thai massage that uses aroma therapeutic oils. 

Let's discuss the Luk Pra Kob and what it brings to your holistic wellness.
