THAI FOOT MASSAGE

Thai foot massage brings the benefits of both reflexology, acupressure and a deeply applied massage to the lower legs and feet.

WHAT IS THAI FOOT MASSAGE?

It incorporates stretches and various massage techniques. It stimulates reflex points on the feet that correspond to the internal organs of the body with use of a wooden tool for deeper pressure. Working along the meridian lines ‘opening’ the energy channels running through the body that revitalises, energise and promotes good health bringing the mind and body into balance and offering all the benefits a massage.
 

We know Thai foot massage is very popular in Thailand and perhaps you have been lucky enough to go there and experience this treatment first hand. Although originates from China it was introduced in Thailand because there are so many agricultural workers doing physical work, on their feet all day and muscles became tight and sore.

WHY DO WE NEED TO GIVE SOME ATTENTION TO OUR FEET?

The feet are the most overworked parts of our body. They bear the full burden of our weight day after day and usually are enclosed and restricted from wearing socks and shoes. The feet are extremely energy sensitive and are easily stimulated with massage and will help with tired, sore feet if you have been on them all day or from exercise you will benefit greatly from a good foot massage.

The difference between reflexology and Thai Foot Massage is that reflexology is performed just on the feet and is a treatment using precise and specific stimulation of reflex points using thumbs and is a more diagnostic approach.

I visit Helen regularly for Thai Foot Massage. I’m on my feet all day and often find my feet aching and ankles swollen. Thai Foot Massage is wonderfully restorative, leaving my feet tingling all the way up to my knees! The therapy is thorough and expertly delivered, l regularly find myself drifting off to sleep as tension slips away. Highly recommended.
