Herbal compress massage
Herbal compress massage is a type of Thai bodywork that combines acupressure, stretching and gentle pressure. After the necessary preparations have been made for your skin with an oil-based or herbal cream, Iphie’s Massage Services will apply pressure with their thumb, forefinger, and middle finger to specific points to relieve tension from muscle tightness. This treatment also stimulates blood circulation as well as lymphatic drainage by increasing venous return. All Iphie’s Massage Services use certified organic essential oils for these treatments only!

Constituents of the herbs we use and their uses
Deep tissue massages are considered deep because they focus on muscle fibres that lie below the surface, whereas a regular massage would penetrate less. Iphie’s Massage Services experts use various techniques, from Swedish to trigger point therapy, through extensive knowledge of anatomy and physiology (along with years of experience) to make you feel better after your session!

We do not recommend herbal compress massage for pregnant women as some components may be absorbed through their skin into their bloodstream.
