The Thai Herbal Poultice Facial is an advanced esthetic therapy that incorporates four massage modalities based on the healing traditions of Thailand. It begins with the Herbal Eye Poultice Massage, using a steamed poultice to release the therapeutic herbs that “lift” the skin, and soften the delicate muscles around the eyes. It also helps to diminish fine lines and dark circles under the eyes.
The Royal Thai Massage technique concentrates on acupressure points to release blocked energy in the face, neck, and shoulders, while the Aromatherapy Massage helps to increase the flow of energy. Finally, a Lymphatic Drainage Massage follows the lymph pathways for removal of toxins through the lymph nodes and facial contouring
Following the facial massage, a natural Thai White Clay Masque is applied to the entire face to hydrate, tighten and refresh the skin. The treatment finishes with an organic moisturizer.
In addition to making your skin look and feel great, this special one-hour, 15-minute treatment provides a multitude of health benefits including detoxifying the skin, transporting nutrients to the skin’s surface, stimulating circulation, relaxing muscle tension, increasing lymphatic flow, and oxygenating the skin.
The Thai Herbal Poultice Facial is now available for $125. “This is really an amazing treatment,” said spa owner Mary Prenon. “It’s gentle enough for all skin types, and is therapeutic as well as rejuvenating.
