Thai Foot Massage
A 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. Foot massage uses hands, fingers, thumbs, knuckles and a rounded wooden stick with lotion, oil or wax.
Thai foot massage as practiced in Thailand is an ancient therapeutic procedure that has become popular today in the West. originally the knowledge and techniques were closely held secrets kept alive by the Thai Royal Palace. Thai Foot massage is a marriage between the ancient healing arts of Reflexology, Chinese Tuina, Japanese Shiatsu and Indian Ayurvedic yoga. Working with the feet, lower leg and knees, this 2000 year old, highly reputed session frees up blocked energy within the body’s many sens lines (Thai-based meridians) to produce a deep and unique feeling of balance, relaxation and well-being.
According to acupuncture and acupressure theory, there are 7200 sensory nerve endings in each foot connected to the internal organs that spread throughout the body. Consequently, the massage is effective in stimulating the functions of the internal organs.
