Thai Stem Massage
In Thai Herbal Stem Massage, traditional healing herbs and oils are wrapped in unbleached cotton and then tied to a stem. Herbal stems are traditional massage tools that have been used in Thailand since ancient times. They help to help release toxins, relieve muscle tension and joint pain and increase circulation in the body. Thai Herbal Stem Massage combines traditional massage techniques with therapeutic herbs and essential oils bundled up in the stems. The oils and resins are steamed to release their healing properties and are then massaged over the body. The oils are absorbed into the blood stream through the epidermis and they react with the body’s chemistry in a sympathetic and gentle way.
For sanitary reasons, each pair of stems can be used up to a maximum of 4 times, over 2 weeks, on the same client only. The cost of the stems is included in the treatment and then the client can take them and encouraged to use them at home. Used stems can be kept in the refrigerator or in a dry place for more effectiveness and extended use.
Our Thai Herbal Stems are handmade in Thailand and are vacuum-packed to ensure freshness and purity. No preservatives or chemicals are added.
