An herbal bag can be applied as a complement to massage. It consists of herbs and spices that are wrapped tightly in cotton and then immersed in hot water or a pot of steam. Main ingredients include plai (used to relax the muscles), lemongrass (as an astringent), turmeric (for detoxification) and camphor (relaxes the muscles and disinfects). Your therapist may apply the herbal bag by using soothing strokes for a full massage, and/or by pressing it on any part of the body to enhance therapy. The aroma of Thai herbs is truly a treatment that helps to relieve the stress of weary bodies and minds.
