After a few scary moments in Times Square over the past few weeks, you’ll be relieved to know that the “bomb” in question is made for the good of mankind, for healing and wellness and relaxation. At 10:00 AM today, I live-streamed a Thai Bomb Massage at Enliven Body Works in New York City. It was absolutely sensational! She began with her hands, applying deep and thorough pressure, stimulating my circulation. The “bombs” (pictured and described below) were used in various ways: as a pair sliding up and down my body allowing the heat and medical qualities to penetrate deep into the skin and muscle. She also placed them on my back and other parts to sit still for long periods of time, leaving red circles to indicate they’d done their job. When it was over I felt explosive from head to toe; truly fulfilled. Bomb diggity! Thai Bomb Massage is a traditional treatment from Thailand. Its focus is in balancing the Life energy or ‘Prana’ flowing in the body by stimulating the Sen Sib lines–the major channels in which the Prana flows. The herbs utilized are a traditional blend from the Wat Po temple in Bangkok. A steamed herbal ball is pressed along the lines (or acupressure zones) in a series of motions to clear any blockages and stimulate blood flow and lymphatic drainage. The herb “bombs” are made from a variety of herbs found in great the nature of Thailand. The balls used at Enliven include: flax seed, lavender, cinnamon, clave, peppermint, eucalyptus leaves an ginger.
