Thai Foot Massage is a unique, rhythmical, powerful therapy combining Chinese reflexology, Shiatsu and traditional Thai Massage techniques. It is applied to the feet and lower legs which involves hands on stretching and massage, together with the use of a stick to stimulate the reflex points on the foot to promote health and wellbeing.
It is believed that blockages within the energy lines will result in illness and pain and, by working along these lines with Thai Foot Massage, blocked energy can be released and functions balanced.
Most traditional massage focuses on tissue manipulation and the working of the muscles surrounding joints. Thai Foot Massage barely touches on these, it is a more gentle, rhythmical working of the pressure points, energy lines and body forces which, together, produce a highly effective therapy.
As Thailand is located along the great trade routes, Thai Foot Massage was greatly influences by both China and India, two of its closest neighbours and their reflexology systems. Research suggests that it was brought from India to Thailand by Buddhist Monks and Ayurveda Doctors.
This traditional healing massage is believed to have been practiced for over 2000 years and is still taught by Buddhist Monks in the Temples of Thailand.
