Traditional Thai Womb Lifting (or Thai Womblifting) is an ancient Northern Lanna Thai healing modality having parallels with Yok Thong (Uterus Massage). The practice of Womblifting involves using hot sea salt crystals in a clay pot wrapped in medicinal leaves and applied as a compress.
Womblifting also involves acupressure on the abdomen, legs, buttocks and back. The uterus is manipulated directly externally with the hands on the abdomen. To be clear, it’s not an internal massage. A Womblifting session can easily take between 3 to 5 hours.
The treatment is applied for both prenatal and postnatal health (like in a Yu Fai setting), for fertility problems, endometriosis, debilitating or irregular periods, a tilted, retroverted and anteverted uterus and mild uterine prolapse, hormonal issues, and for overall feminine health and well-being.
Quite similar treatments are in fact used to cure or alleviate prostate problems of men.
Thai Womblifting in the sense as mentioned above, is a healing modality of which training and treatments are almost only to be found in the Chiang Mai region.
