Thai Herbal Ball Reflexology

Thai herbal balls (Luk Pra Kob) are a method of treatment employed in traditional Thai medicine. The herbs in the ball will help muscles to relax quickly, and bring skin to a new level of regeneration.

  • Turmeric, one of the herbs used in the ball, has been used by Thai women for centuries for helping with toxicity as well as for the cleansing effect it has on skin, for rejuvenation, and promoting new cell growth.
  • Kaffir lime also has astringent properties and anti-oxidants that help promote healing.
  • Tamarind draws out the oils and toxins as it purifies while it soothes and heals the skin.
  • Prai will leave the skin soft and smooth and is said to remove age and liver spots.
