Stamp massage has a long tradition – in Ayurvedic medicine in India as well as in Thai massage. And even in Europe it is becoming more and more popular. On this page you will learn what stamp massage is, how it works, and what positive effects it has on the body and mind.
What is “stamp massage”?
Stamp massage is a special massage technique that uses small, heated linen or cotton bags filled with herbs. These are gently stroked, rolled, and tapped over the body. As you can easily imagine, this holistic treatment combines the benefits of massage, aromatherapy, and herbal medicine. But let’s start from the beginning: For the stamp massage, little sachets of cotton or linen are filled with carefully selected mixtures of herbs, flowers, and spices and then formed into stamps using a special wrapping technique. The stamps are heated in warm oil and moved over the body with stroking, rolling, and tapping movements. The pressure and intensity of the stamp massage are adapted to the individual needs of each client.
What are the positive effects of a stamp massage?
The positive effects of a stamp massage are due to the right combination of herbal mixture and heat. Oriental massage relieves tension and reduces muscle pain, significantly boosts circulation, gently stimulates the lymphatic system and metabolism, efficiently promotes detoxification, and also strengthens the immune system. Furthermore, the essential oils contained in the herbal blends have a relaxing and calming effect on the mind. They help reduce stress and improve sleep quality. Stamp massage also has a beneficial effect on joint inflammation and fibromyalgia. It is therefore a holistic treatment that is used to bring body, mind, and soul back into harmony.
