This course covers preparation and use of Thai herbal compress, or Luk Pra Kob, which has been used in Thailand for over 400 years as a medicinal treatment. The herbs used in Luk Pra Kob, which are wrapped in cotton cloth and steamed prior to application, have been shown to have anti-inflammatory, analgesic and muscle relaxant properties. In addition, there are benefits to the skin as well as aromatherapeutic properties to the herbs, whose essential oils are released with steam. In addition to traditional sen line application, we spend considerable time on the clinical use of the herbal compress for pain and restriction. The course also covers the use of Thai herbs for traditional Thai herbal sauna or Thai steam treatments. Prerequisite: Some Thai massage experience.
