Thai Medicinal Herbs: Intensive Workshop

October 6 - October 8 | $575, all materials included
Apsara Studio / Bob Haddad, Chapel Hill, NC 27516 United States

This three-day intensive workshop deals with herbal healing traditions of Thailand. Thai herbal medicine, and luk pra kob (compresses) have many applications in the modern world. We will mix fresh and dry Thai herbs and roots to prepare herbal poultices, herbal compresses, teas, herbs for cooking, and bath infusions.

This exciting course deals with medicinal properties of major Thai herbs; preparing and using herbal teas and poultices for topical application; and daily practice with Thai herbal compresses in Thai massage. There will be discussion, mixing, tasting, and preparing herbs, and a review of application techniques used in bodywork. We discuss conditions that are suited for herbal compress treatment, and we review Thai massage techniques for both hot and cold herbal compresses that can be used on the floor and the table. The effects of a Thai herbal session are amazing; aches and pains seem to fade away, and you feel relaxed yet energized. Herbs and compresses are included in the registration fee, and each student returns home with samples of hers for future use.
