Enjoy two days learning thai massage (on the floor or table) and adding the use of warm herbal compress packs. Start with the basics of thai stretching and compression, working the lower and upper body from supine and prone positions, learning to use your body with minimal effort for maximum results. Then explore the healing qualities of herbs used in traditional thai medicine. Smell, see, touch, and prepare fresh and dried herbs into a cloth poultice for steaming. Then apply the warm compress during your thai massage. The Herbal Compresses are also great as an add-on to Swedish massage, and to increase your knowledge of healing herbs to be used in your personal daily life. Class includes a comprehensive textbook and one pack you make in class to take home and use again. Additional packs and loose herbs available for purchase.
