There’s nothing quite like a relaxing massage to soothe a body stressed from long hours spent at a desk or lack of sleep due to a hacking cough. It’s also a great way to reward yourself for putting in all that time at the gym and sticking to your New Year’s resolutions. Think long, gentle strokes that soothe tight muscles, ease tensions and transport you to your happy place.
But if you’re looking to try something a little bit different this month, why not give the Thai Herbal Ball compress a go? Available at Le Petit Spa (located at Tudor Court Shopping Gallery, just next to Tanglin Mall), the treatment has been around for years and combines thermal and herbal therapy with traditional aromatherapy to bring you a variety of health benefits.
What makes it so special is the use of a blend of herbs, all of which are carefully selected for their restorative benefits. They are then balled together in a cotton or linen cloth and heated to deepen the sensory effect during your massage. Imagine your masseuse placing a warm herbal compress over your entire body, loosening knots and tight muscles as the warmth radiates through your every pore. The heat helps to dilate blood vessels and this increases the amount of blood and oxygen circulating in the body thus increasing the efficiency of your organs. Simultaneously, the aroma from the compress lulls your mind, leaving you in a deep state of relaxation to release stress and tension. While you’re dosing off, the anti-inflammatory, astringent and antioxidant properties of the compress help tackle minor skin conditions and blemishes. In short, it feels like pure bliss!
The 90-minute treatment is unbeatable when it comes to relieving fatigue, improving blood circulation and stimulating the internal organs. Other benefits also include alleviating pain, stiff muscles and ligaments, chronic backaches, arthritis and minor skin conditions. It can even be used to get relief from respiratory ailments such as bronchitis, asthma and common colds.
Sounds tempting? Le Petit Spa is now offering Expat Living readers the Herbal Spa Ball Massage for just $98 (it’s usually $198!) Is a foot massage more your thing?
