• Clients wanting to detox/purge impurities from their body

• Clients who do not have any sensitivities to fragrance, herbs, or heat Thai Hot Stem Massage is a form of massage that has drawn various components of other modalities to create a soothing, purifying, and rejuvenating treatment. Among the therapies included are components of Swedish, Thai, Hawaiian Lomi Lomi, Shiatsu massage as well as acupressure and lymphatic drainage.
Each treatment involves herbal or coconut stems, in addition to massage techniques. In Thailand, the stems are used in treatments for aches, pains, to relieve inflammation and bruising as well as a soothing treatment for underlying connective tissue. The deep moist heat produced by the steamed stems is highly effective when dealing with deep-seated muscle tension and the aromatherapy offered by the herbs is a wonderful way to encourage relaxation and promote the healing process. The cotton covering and the oils produced by the herbs offer an additional advantage of exfoliating, cleansing, and improving the skin.
