Thai Herbal Poultice

What it is

The Thai Herbal Poultice has been used for centuries as a detoxification treatment. It has countless benefits for the body and is frequently used to aid in muscle and soft tissue aches. Soft balls are filled with a special blend of Thai and Chinese herbs and are steamed before being pressed onto fatigued muscles. The heat induces muscle relaxation while the herbs relieve muscle and joint pain, help to increase circulation, and provide nourishment for the skin. The heat also increases blood oxygen flow, thus oxygenating vital organs and allowing them to be more efficient.

By blending the Thai Herbal Compress with massage, one can receive maximum benefits for the body. The heated muscles will become more open to manipulation while the herbs will provide a detoxifying boost to any form of massage. This special treatment can also have a therapeutic effect due to the scent  of the special herbs. The herbs used in the Thai Herbal medicine ball typically include:

  • Prai – for relief of sore muscles and tired joints;
  • Turmeric – an antibacterial skin refresher;
  • Lemongrass – an astringent for skin blemishes; Kaffir Lime – for toning mature skin and for boosting circulation;
  • Patchouli – unwinds the mind and relaxes the body;
  • Camphor – increases local blood flow;
  • Orange skin – supports collagen formation in the skin.
  • Eucalyptus – which will have an relaxing yet uplifting aromatherapy effect.

Thai poultice massage is not recommended for women who are pregnant. Also, persons who have rheumatoid arthritis should get the approval of their medical doctor before receiving a Thai poultice massage. Otherwise, any of us leading an active lifestyle, especially anyone feeling sore and achy, would truly benefit from the deep, soothing, aromatic comfort that comes with a Thai poultice massage.
