Thai Herbal Massage
At LaVida Massage + Skincare our Thai Herbal Massage uses a combination of cinnamon chips, lemongrass, eucalyptus, galangal root, and ginger root. These natural herbs are wrapped and steamed in a cotton muslin cloth and then massaged on the back.
Thai Herbal Massage is beneficial in the colder months because it can help boost the immune system, and may decrease symptoms of arthritis, muscle and/or joint pain, general fatigue, headaches, and many other things. The combination of massage and Thai herbs can act as an anti-inflammatory and pain reliever. Research conducted into the effect of Thai herb compress concluded that the treatment was more beneficial than standard therapy in patients with osteoarthritis muscle pain.
