What is a Thai Foot Massage?
Thai foot massage is a massage of the lower legs and feet, applying pressure to specific reflex points using a wooden Thai foot stick, and working on the meridian (or sen) lines to energise and create balance to the body. The Influence of reflexology on this therapy plays a major role. Reflexology is based on the premise that on the soles and the top of the feet there is a complete map of the human body. There are zones and reflex areas in the feet, which correspond to all glands, organs, parts and systems of the body. The act of reading signs on the feet, understanding the client and of applying pressure using the thumb, finger and hand techniques through specialised combination of pressure are an art.
