Heat Therapy & Workshops

Thai Heat Therapy Toronto Workshops

On the mat or on the massage table

This 1-day hands-on course is designed to provide students with the foundation of Thai Herbal massage. This form of Thai Massage blends the profound benefits of heat, aroma, herbs and acupressure. A herbal hot compress is applied to muscles and joints to relieve soreness and pain while increasing levels of flexibility. The heat penetrates the pores, the skin becomes heated, and blood flow is stimulated resulting in a rapid rebuilding and nourishing of the body’s tissues. The herbs hold the heat from the steam to deeply penetrate & relax the muscles. Compress ingredients include: ginger, lemongrass, camphor, eucalyptus and Tiger balm.

  • The healing benefits of Thai Heat Massage
