The Herbal Poultice or “Luk Pra Kob” (literally translated to mean “pressing herbal sphere”) in Thai is best described as a deep heat medicinal muscle treatment that dates back to 14th Century Thailand when a hot pack was administered to war soldiers returning from battle. To rejuvenate warriors, a bundle of therapeutic herbs was steamed and applied to the body to soothe aches and pains. The body absorbs the heat, along with the organic herbs to help ease muscle aches & pains, alleviate stiff joints, stimulate circulation, increase lymphatic drainage, detoxify & release stagnant energy in the body.
The tradition of herbal healing dates back for centuries and is an integrated system of medicine incorporating the Indian Ayurvedic system with Chinese practices, mixed folk medicine and the belief in the powers of nature and earth.
“A mindful and meditative therapy that clients love receiving and therapists love giving.”
