Lonely Planet review

This is a unique time capsule of old folk ways. Maw Hom (‘Herbal Doctor’) is a licensed herb practitioner and massage therapist, who learned most of her craft from her grandmother, a midwife and herbalist living near the Burmese border. She runs a traditional herbal steam bath, once a common feature of rural villages. Traditional Thai massage can be added for an upcountry ‘spa’ session. It is 9km from Chiang Mai near the McKean Institute; check the website for directions.
