The technique of Philippine Hilot massage is primarily a connection of different methods of overcoming pain. This healing and simultaneously deeply relaxing massage involves at the beginning gentle, smooth moves of whole palms, which enable the therapist to find places which are the source of pain.
Banana leaves have special therapeutic power. Used throughout the whole treatment, they are applied on the body, which is warmed with coconut oil. Additional body-warming element is fresh ginger, which is distributed all over the body under special bubbles. After gentle and smooth moves of palms, there are stronger ones applied with elements of reflexology. Polyphenols included in banana leaves are also a source of youth; this all makes Hilot massage original as well as healing, relaxing and vital.
