The selected plants are first crushed and placed in the cotton linen, and then wrapped with rope to form the compress. During the first part of the massage, they will be steam-heated. The massage begins with Thai massage techniques, which includes thumb pressure, hand movements and mobilizations of some joints. The hot compresses are then pressed or tapped all over the body, paying particular attention to tensed areas.
This massage is not recommended in very hot weather and for people with cardiovascular problems, diabetes or a weakened immune system. Varicose veins, skin problems or obesity are also contraindicated for this type of massage.Find a therapist
