The Herbal Massage Ball is one of Thailand’s traditional massage tools which have been widely used since ancient times. They are known for their anti-inflammatory and relaxing properties, as well as their ability to treat a variety of ailments including chronic muscle pain, joint pain and various skin conditions.
The Herbal Ball is a cotton bag filled with more than ten varieties of herbs. The ball is steamed to temperatures of around 80 - 100 degrees Celsius or dampened and then heated in a Microwave. This allows the essential oils to evaporate into the cotton cloth that the herbs are wrapped in, and when the ball is applied to the skin, the essential oils and heat are transferred to the recipient’s body.
How to use the Herbal Ball
Taking a bath immediately is not recommended as the body temperature might not have adjusted and the healing properties will be rinsed off.
