Beyond that, we can also help our clients achieve improved health and wellbeing, and even a good measure of relief from the conditions they are currently experiencing.
Here’s a quick peek at the services we offer and how these can benefit you.
Traditional Thai Massage
Traditional Thai massage dates back to 2,500 years ago, operating upon the principle that the body has air inside it which courses through 72,000 pathways. This type of massage offers plenty of benefits including relaxation, stress reduction, improved blood circulation, increased energy and improved range of motion and flexibility. Those who have tried traditional Thai massage report feeling more centred in both their minds and bodies.
Thai Herbal Compress
Although the use of herbal compress body massage has been used extensively in numerous Asian countries, it is slowly gaining traction here in London. What makes this massage treatment different from others is the fact that it requires the use of special herbs that are sourced from Thailand. These herbs are then used with special oils to create a sweet aroma and when these are compressed onto the skin, these can help a person relax while the nerves are stimulated. Thai herbal compress is particularly beneficial for people who are seeking relief from pain, stiff muscles, arthritis, migraines, and even from stress and anxiety. The herbs used for this treatment are antiseptic and have astringents and antioxidants.
Reflexology is a modality that traces its roots to Ancient China. The ancient Chinese believed that the foot contains millions of nerve endings which correspond to various parts of the body. Through the application of pressure on various areas on the foot, the nerves are freed from blockages. Once these nerves are freed from blockages, the body’s natural ability to heal itself is activated. Reflexology can remedy a variety of conditions and bring benefits like increased vitality, improved blood circulation and muscle relaxation.
Thai Aromatherapy Massage
Through the use of the finest essential oils and traditional Thai massage techniques, Kobkun’s therapist can help achieve various goals ranging from muscle relaxation and stress relief to bacteria reduction and combating diseases. In this type of therapy, each essential oil is used to serve a particular purpose. Rosemary-based essential oils, for example, are used to both energise and cleanse the body. Grapefruit and orange essential oils, on the other hand, can provide people with sleep problems much needed sleep and rest.
During pregnancy, a woman’s body undergoes various changes, both externally and internally. These changes can leave an expectant mum feeling physical pain and emotional stress. In order to remedy these, a pregnant woman can utilise pregnancy massage to experience relief both from aches and stress. On top of these, pregnancy massage can help reduce depression and lessen labour pains during delivery.
