Thai Poultice

The use of herbal poultice balls dates as far back as the 14th century. Back then, herbal poultice was administered to soldiers returning from battle to help heal their wounds and expedite recovery.  Today, seven centuries later, it is still a vital component of Thai medicine. Thai poultice massage is a deep heat treatment that allows heat and herbs to be absorbed by the body.

In Thai herbal poultice massage, a steam heated herbal ball is applied to the body using an assortment of massage techniques. As the tissues are “worked” and kneaded, the heat and herbs are absorbed by the layers of the body. The combination of the heat and herbs reduces aches and pains, increases lymphatic drainage, and helps bring the body, mind and soul back into balance. In addition to the herbal poultice, a Thai aromatherapy oil is added in order to ease the body further into relaxation. This assists with releasing “Sen Points” (similar to acupressure). Finally, Thai stretching is utilized to unblock energy and direct healing to areas of pain or discomfort. This is truly a one-of-a kind healing treatment.
