What is Thai herbal ball massage?

Thai herbal compress massage, also known as Thai herbal ball massage or Luk Pra Kob massage, is a traditional healing practice that combines the benefits of traditional Thai massage with the therapeutic properties of herbal compresses. This type of massage involves the use of heated herbal compresses that are applied to the body to provide relaxation, relief from muscle tension, and other health benefits.

Here's how a Thai herbal compress massage typically works:

  1. Herbal Compress Preparation: A blend of therapeutic herbs, such as lemongrass, ginger, turmeric, kaffir lime, and various aromatic plants, is wrapped tightly in a cloth to create a compress. These herbs are chosen for their healing properties and are known to have anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and soothing effects.

  2. Steaming: The herbal compress is typically steamed or heated before the massage session to release the beneficial compounds and aromatic oils from the herbs.

  3. Massage Technique: During the massage, the therapist uses the heated herbal compresses to apply gentle pressure, rolling, and kneading movements to the body. The compresses are often applied along energy lines or meridians, similar to traditional Thai massage techniques.

  4. Heat and Aromatherapy: The heat from the herbal compresses helps to relax muscles and tissues, while the aromatic herbs release soothing scents that can promote relaxation and a sense of well-being.

  5. Benefits: Thai herbal compress massage offers several potential benefits, including muscle relaxation, pain relief, improved circulation, reduced inflammation, and a general sense of relaxation and rejuvenation. The combination of heat, pressure, and herbal properties can contribute to an overall feeling of well-being.

  6. Customization: The therapist can tailor the massage session to address specific areas of concern or to provide a more holistic relaxation experience.

  7. Variations: Different spas and therapists may have their own variations of the herbal compress blend and massage techniques, so the experience can vary slightly depending on where you receive the treatment.

Thai herbal compress massage is often sought after for its therapeutic effects and the unique experience it offers. However, as with any massage or wellness treatment, it's important to communicate with your therapist about any allergies, sensitivities, or health conditions you may have before undergoing the treatment. If you're considering a Thai herbal compress massage, it's advisable to seek the services of a trained and experienced therapist who is knowledgeable about the technique and its benefits.  

Benefits of Thai herbal ball massage

Herbal ball massage or herbal poultice massage, offers a variety of potential benefits due to the combination of massage techniques and the therapeutic properties of the herbs used in the compresses. Here are some of the benefits associated with herbal compress massage:

  1. Muscle Relaxation: The heat from the herbal compresses helps to relax and soothe tense muscles, promoting a sense of physical relaxation and easing muscle stiffness.

  2. Pain Relief: The combination of heat and herbal properties can provide natural pain relief. The compresses' anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties may help alleviate minor aches and pains.

  3. Improved Circulation: The heat from the compresses can dilate blood vessels, leading to improved circulation. This increased blood flow can promote the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to tissues and aid in the removal of waste products.

  4. Reduced Inflammation: Many of the herbs used in herbal compresses have anti-inflammatory properties, which can help reduce localized inflammation and swelling.

  5. Stress Reduction: The aromatherapy effects of the herbal compresses, along with the soothing massage techniques, can help reduce stress, anxiety, and tension, promoting a sense of relaxation and well-being.

  6. Detoxification: The application of heat and pressure during the massage may help stimulate the lymphatic system, aiding in the removal of toxins from the body.

  7. Enhanced Energy Flow: Herbal compress massage is often based on traditional energy concepts. The treatment aims to balance the body's energy pathways (similar to meridians in traditional Chinese medicine), potentially improving overall energy flow.

  8. Skin Nourishment: The herbal properties of the compresses can have beneficial effects on the skin. Some herbs are known for their moisturizing, cleansing, and rejuvenating qualities.

  9. Immune Support: Certain herbs used in the compresses may have immune-boosting properties, potentially helping to support the body's natural defense mechanisms.

  10. Aromatherapy Benefits: Inhaling the aromatic scents released from the herbal compresses can have calming and mood-enhancing effects, contributing to an overall sense of relaxation.

  11. Holistic Healing: Herbal compress massage combines physical touch, heat therapy, aromatherapy, and herbal medicine, providing a holistic approach to well-being.

  12. Cultural Experience: Herbal compress massage has deep cultural roots, particularly in Thai and other Southeast Asian traditions. For some individuals, receiving this type of massage can offer a unique cultural experience.

It's important to note that individual experiences may vary, and the benefits of herbal compress massage depend on factors such as the specific herbs used, the skill of the therapist, and an individual's health condition. If you're interested in trying herbal compress massage, it's advisable to consult with a qualified massage therapist who is experienced in this technique and to communicate any allergies or sensitivities you may have to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience.

Truly therapeutic. Everything about it was so relaxing.   This was my first time having an herbal ball used on me and I loved it, it was so warm and soothing.


My masseuse worked hard on my body trying to work out knots even being surprised at how much pressure I can take and to my surprise.


I still felt great the next day, no soreness from how hard she worked on me. From walking into the door and upon leaving, it was a great experience throughout.


We are eagerly looking forward to providing you with an exceptional massage experience for your booking session at Siri Thai Massage.

"Special Thanks to Pauline my massager"

This was my first time having an herbal ball used on me and I loved it

Truly therapeutic. Everything about it was so relaxing. My husband had a 90 min Thai combo massage and I had the same but added the herbal ball. This was my first time having an herbal ball used on me and I loved it, it was so warm and soothing. My masseuse (I think Mia) was so sweet and very thorough. She worked hard on my body trying to work out knots even being surprised at how much pressure I can take and to my surprise I still felt great the next day, no soreness from how hard she worked on me. From walking into the door and upon leaving, it was a great experience throughout.
