Thai Herbal Compresses
Thai Herbal Compresses or bundles are part of Thai Herbal Folk Medicine, and is known traditionally as luk pra kob. It uses the application of steamed, herbal bundles filled with a selection of fresh and dried herbs. The heat from the compresses allows the herbs to penetrate deeply. The herbal bundles are applied to affected areas, aiding in the release of pain, reduction of swelling and assisting the body to heal itself. A Thai Herbal session can also incorporate the use of cupping, body scraping (gua sha), and moxibustion to help relieve inflamed trigger points, assist the body to produce its own natural anti-inflammatory responses and stimulate healing.
