TCM Perspective of a Herbal Spa
In TCM, herbal spas have four functions: dredge, excrete, tonify, and helps the body recuperate.
The first step is to remove wind, cold, heat, dampness, dryness, and fire from the body, also known as Six Evils in TCM.
The Six Evils arise from our choice of diet, lifestyle, seasonal changes, and our own body constitution that disrupt the balance of qi in the body, causing pain and illnesses. Once these Six Evils have been eliminated from the body, the next step is to treat the internal organs and balance the qi flow in the body.
As you soak in the warm herbal spa, the concoctions of herbs will restore Yang energy which increases your body’s vitality.
