Facial Thai Steamed Herbal CompressRegular price $18.00
We currently offer four varieties of facial herbal compress. All of them can be used for acne, for lifting and toning, and for relaxing the muscles. However, some have particular strengths and those are outlined in the descriptions below. We recommend trying one of each type to begin, since these treatment tools are a multi-sensory experience!
These compresses are the multi-tool of face and neck treatment (and eyes!). These small steamed herbal compresses combine moisture, herbal infusion, warmth (or cold), and the soothing feeling of gentle pressure to create changes on multiple levels. Use them with a whisper-light pressure for a very gentle way to soothe the nervous system and impart beneficial herbs to the skin. Use them with directed pressure to shift fascia and fluid in the face for beneficial change. Use them with rolling, holding, and even light pulling to create strong changes in muscle tension and aid in changing muscle activation patterns over time.
If you are a professional, please purchase the online course that accompanies these facial compresses: Thai Steamed Herbal Facial Massage Professional Webinar (Recorded)
If you are using this for yourself or for your family, please see this tutorial video for home use.
