The Thai Herbal Compress 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 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 tamarind, kaffir leaves, lemongrass, ginger, and eucalyptus which will have an relaxing yet uplifting aromatherapy effect.
