Luk Pra Kob - 7 CEs

Luk pra kob massage or herbal compress massage is an age old holistic therapy used  in Thai Traditional Medicine and to enhance the effects of Thai bodywork. The compress is filled with a blend of chosen medicinal herbs and steam heated, then applied to the body to relieve tension, stress and inflammation. The combination of therapeutic heat and healing herbs provide deep relaxation, aromatherapy and restoration of the body and mind. The heat helps to relax the deep layers of tissue to receive the healing properties of the herbs. The compress is used as a massage tool, pressing and kneading tired, achy, sore muscles and joints.
Enhance your Thai bodywork with luk pra kob. In this 1-day course we start the day with Thai yoga for self-care then learn basic luk pra kob massage techniques and their respective benefits, commonly used herbs and the benefits they provide as well as an overview of the sib sen (10 major energetic pathways in Thai Traditional Medicine). We'll practice massage routines with luk pra kob that aid with specific ailments such as headaches, low back pain and more in this hands on workshop. Luk pra kob is the perfect compliment to Thai massage therapy or any other massage modality you may practice. We provide the herbal compresses and steamers to use during class.
