Learn how to enhance your massage sessions with the Thai Herbal Poultice!
These steamed herbal balls have an incredible ability to soften myofascial tension, alleviating muscle and joint pain and restoring an over-taxed nervous system. The treatment is comforting and sedating to the recipients while these anti-inflammatory herbs do their work.
