Thai Herbal Massage Balls are (also known as herbal hot compress or "look phra kob" in Thai) are used by many massage therapists and individuals who believe in integrating the wisdom and experience of many cultures.
Thai Herbal Massage Balls were originally used as an energy shifting medium, with many of the herbs having not only amazing healing properties, but also spiritual significance. Unlike many other Thai Herbal Massage Balls, Arun Thai uses 13 quality herbs as recommended by the Old Thai Medicine Hospital.
The herbal balls are made wet and then steamed (in a vegetable steamer or double boiler) to make them warm, and then applied in either a systematic way to the body’s energy meridians or (more simply) to sore or injured spots. Our package has detailed instructions for use in both Thai and English,. Easy and fun to use, and each ball can be re-used up to 7 times (instructions for storage after use also on our pack).

A 27 minute DVD (an extended version of the youtube clip) is also available for sale through this website.
