Before my Yam Khang Fire Therapy session, i was even warmly welcomed and greeted by the villagers at Ban Rai Kong Khing with their lucky charms made from pandan leaves. *Protecting me from what is coming up next ?!?!?!
Onwards to the Peak of the show, Yam Khang Fire Therapy! The masseuse will first bathe their feet in therapeutic healing water infused with herbs, sesame oil and plai oil(a kind of ginger oil). The masseuse uses a stick to balance himself while working with one of his foot on you. He dips his foot in the bowls and then runs it over a red-hot iron plate before massaging your body with his foot.
