When massage therapist Chuck Duff began our session with a hot, wet cotton ball—pulled from a large Crock-Pot—we were a little skeptical of Thai Bodywork School of Massage’ signature treatment: Luk Pra Kob. But what followed put our doubts—not to mention some nagging hip pain—to rest. The ball contained steamed herbs (ginger, turmeric, lemongrass, kefir lime and others) that Duff slowly pressed onto the skin, paying particular attention to that sore hip. The steam brings out the aromatherapeutic properties of the herbs and releases essential oils that work as an anti-inflammatories, flushing out toxins and loosening the body in preparation for the Thai massage that typically follows. Performed on a mat, Thai massage is essentially assisted yoga, combining deep stretches with applied pressure for a relaxing treat that’s ideal for athletic types or anyone looking for a more interactive massage experience. We’re happy to report that despite our initial hesitation, we had a ball.
