Gifts from Thailand

It was my pleasure to bring back Thai Herbal Compress Balls to use on my family, friends, and regulars. After use you freeze them and can reuse them several times. I heat them up in a small crock pot to use in session but frozen or cold you can apply them to cuts, bruises, burns, etc... I put them in a ziplock freezer bag writing the name of the person for our next session.

During the holidays I spent a few days at my brother's home where we typically meet each year along with the in-laws. Over the years I have brought my massage table and give massages to any family member that wanted one. The children really enjoy it and like that I try out new techniques. Bringing back many new skills and using a massage mat instead of table I provided some new work and was proud to use the Herbs. Everyone really enjoyed this work.

Over the next several months I use the herbs on different people and all seems to be receptive. Now that I am down to my last few and I can't get them for what I paid for them there people are wanting more. I did see them online for about $10 per ball so I guess if folks want them before I go back to Thailand we can order. I guess I can make some too but it would be lacking some of the Thai ingredients.
