The Herbal Poultice treatment utilizes warmed muslin poultices of Thai and Chinese herbs and spices that are steamed and applied directly to the body in a kneading action. Described by many as a heavenly health treatment, this healing procedure is unchanged since Thailand's Ayutthaya period (14th-18th century) when an aromatic, heated pack was administered to soldiers worn down from the war after returning home with sore, bruised muscles.
This traditional treatment has been practiced to soothe muscle tension, inflammation and stiffness on the key areas. Heat and herbs are absorbed by the body to help to reduce aches and pains, increase lymphatic drainage and condition the skin. It is especially beneficial post partum.
Unlike Western massage, Thai massage focuses on energy conduits throughout the body, and aims to harmonize one's energy, loosen up blockages, and repair deficiencies along these energy lines. It relaxes the muscles while stimulating blood circulation and energy flow.
I have lived with Tinnitus for more than 30 years. The noise in my ears never went away - at night the sounds became louder. After several visits to doctors over the years, I pretty well had given up.
Ms. Liz Yerkes suggested I visit her for possible treatment. She used her fingers in my mouth to push on certain areas and massaged other areas on my neck and back. After a few treatments, I now have my life back!

Your great massage technique cured my very stiff neck that hurt for so long. It did what the physical therapy could not do.
Now that my neck is better I continue to have your massages because with your expertise, there's always some spot needing attention.
My family insists on appointments with you when they visit. Thanks for your dedication.

We've been clients of Liz for over ten years now. Previously we'd used a series of massage therapists over the last 40 years. None have come close to the satisfaction provided by Liz. We think of her weekly visit as a "system reset" that is a vital part of our busy lives.
Liz's pursuit of both anatomical knowledge and therapeutic advancements place her WAY beyond the "masseuse" category.
