We've combined the best of Switzerland's cherry stone treatment (the one you've come to love and trust in all CherryPak products) with Thailand's Luk Pra Kob to promote relaxation, improved circulation, detoxification, and relief for sore, aching muscles and joints.
Luk Pra Kob - the classic Thai herbal massage compress - has long been a trusted treatment for muscle and soft tissue pain. Traditionally, a steamed bundle of herbs, roots and bark was used on soldiers returning from battle. They would line up, exhausted and wounded, seeking relief from inflammation from their injuries. Practitioners in the community then began using it more widely, treating anyone who needed relief from tired, achy muscles and joints.
For years, spas in Asia and Europe have been using some variation of herbal compress massage to bring clients into an ancient healing tradition, surrounding them with rich enticing aromas and deep moist heat, alleviating both aches and pains, and stress from everyday living.
The Cherrypak hot stone massage ball is ideal for use in spas or clinics, and is easy for anyone to use at home.
CLINICAL USE: Massage therapists would press the heated compress into the muscles and over the joints, allowing the heat and the oils to be absorbed deeply into the tissue. When steamed, the process releases a relaxing, pleasing aroma that further enhances the treatment. The hot cherry stones will amplify any standard massage technique, with distributed, deep-reaching tissue stimulation. This works in applying pressure with rotation, rolling the ball under your forearm, reinforcing deep static pressure with the ball under your elbow, and helping to finish off with drainage movements. It also works in standard relaxation massage.
Unlike commercial Thai herbal balls (which are good for only 2-3 uses before the organics inside begin to rot), our massage ball is filled with clean, long-wearing, heat-retaining cherry stones - good for hundreds of uses. Herbal and aromatherapy components are brought in through either an impressively luxurious herbal steam, or use of essential oils and a basic microwave, as best suits your spa and the differing tastes of your clientele.
