This week's entry for Candid Carrie's Fx4 are these odd looking things. I bet nobody can guess what they are.....These were used when I got a Thai Poultice Massage last week. They are muslin bags filled with a variety of herbs. They are heated to just about body temperature and are used to massage out all of your aches and pains. You are first rubbed down with raw silk gloves to slough off the dead skin (gross, but feels great), then you are slathered in oil and these heated bags are used to massage you down. It is weird because of the sensation of the heat almost feels cold. They are reheated several times throughout the treatment, melting away all of stiffness. I felt like a stick of butter slowly melting, and I loved it!
Be nice and give yourself a treat every once in a while. It is well worth it!
Thanks for playing.
