According to tradition – a mixture of exotic herbs such as lemon grass, turmeric, kaffir lime zest, or camphor is wrapped around cotton cloth, which forms a stamp that is heated in essential oil directly before the treatment. Heating releases the properties and active ingredients of the herbal mixture, which have a direct effect on our skin and respiratory system. With time, when the temperature of the compresses decreases – the intensity of pressure on the body increases.
Currently, cinnamon, ginger, coffee, cloves, guarana, sea salt, eucalyptus leaves, and marine algae are also used – these ingredients have stimulant and lipoclastic properties. They are also applied to slimming and cellulite treatments. Heated stamps release fragrances, which soothe and calm the nerves. Herbal Compress Massage has its application also to beauty treatments – it has cleansing, softening and smoothing properties, it moisturizes and nourishes the skin, improving its tone.
