Yu Fai Postpartum Heat Therapy Treatment Providers in Thailand
Yu Fai postpartum practices in Thailand – also written Yoo Fai – are related to the concept of ‘regaining heat.’ To understand this, we need to know that traditionally – in many Asian countries – blood is considered a “hot” element, and subsequently when giving birth and loosing blood, the process is described as “cold.”

Thai postpartum activities during the confinement period (about six weeks) include ‘lying by fire,’ dietary restrictions, hot herbal compresses, massage, herbal steam and herbal bath treatments, abdominal binding, and other activities that prevent “heat loss,” like for instance keeping the body covered, sexual abstinence, and avoiding the wind.

The overall focus of Yu Fai is regaining normal functioning of the body, notably of the sexual and reproductive organs, increase well-being and promote energy, support wound healing and weight loss, and regaining beauty, that is – it’s likewise done for aesthetic reasons.

In this article, we take a look at Yu Fai treatment providers in Thailand that include heat therapies in their programs, notably herbal steam baths and treatments, hot clay pots with salt, herbal compresses, sauna tents, vaginal sitz baths, and the like.

Note that you can find Yu Fai treatments with both private healers and clinics or Thai hospitals with a Thai traditional medicine department or clinic attached to it.

In Thailand, you’ll also find therapists that focus specifically (sometimes exclusively) on certain therapeutic aspects with regard to the pregnancy or postpartum period, or more generally on sexual and genital dysfunctions. Not necessarily used only in the Yu Fai confinement period, they would typically use traditional healing modalities like for instance Thai Womblifting, Karsai Nei Tsang, Yok Tong, and Chi Nei Tsang, to name some of the best known treatments.

In any case, below you’ll find a selection of postnatal Yu Fai Heat Therapy treatment providers in Thailand.
