Thai foot massage is the application of pressure onto particular areas of the soles of the feet. A reflex action in another part of the body is stimulated by the manipulation of each specific area.
This form of massage originated in Thailand about 2000 years ago, and is a marriage between the ancient healing arts of Reflexology, Chinese Tui Na, Japanese Shiatsu and Indian Ayurvedic yoga. This is a massage of both the feet and lower legs all the way up to, and including, the knees, which provides relaxation and balance in the body’s various systems and healthy blood circulation. Various points on the feet and legs are kneaded, stretched, massaged and pressed, with pressure from the thumbs and knuckles, and by use of the traditional foot massage stick. This benefits the whole body, with all the major body parts and internal organs being stimulated to release any blockages and ‘stuck’ energy.
