With an extensive menu of services, all treatments are based on Thai healing rituals. For example, the Thai Herbal Heat Compress, one of its signature treatments, is an age-old holistic treatment that helps sync up the body and mind. Commonly practised in Thailand for centuries, this method involves applying a heated pouch of herbs onto aching areas in a firm, tapping motion. On top of alleviating muscle tension, the heat also improves skin’s absorption of herbal ingredients and draws out impurities from the body.
