Friday Foto Finish 10.3

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.

  4. They did look like pumpkins. Although I love pumpkins, your descriptions sounds waaaaay better. Where do you find such a luxury?:-)

  5. I would never have guessed what they were. I am envious of the massage but am glad someone out there is relaxed and feels like butta. Cool post thanks for sharing.

  7. That sounds heavenly!

    They look like the things that they used to ink an old printing press. (That would have been my guess!)

    Also I noticed that you are a middle school teacher. I taught middle school for 3 years and then started having babies. I admire anyone who teaches middle school. It is a rewarding and yet difficult job! Good luck to you!

  8. I could have sworn they were going to be new "manly" parts for B & G.

    But, I was wrong.

  12. Lauren - you get to take them with you. I didn't take the photo there. They can be used up to three times. Once they dry out, you can also use them as potpourri, aromatheropy, etc.
