Thai Foot Massage
People often report that they feel equally refreshed, relaxed, and calm after receiving a Thai Foot massage.
People often notice a sense of being more in-touch with their body, and relief of aches, pains and tension in the feet and lower legs.
It is advisable to stay well-hydrated with plenty of water or herbal tea for at least 24 hours after treatment.
What is Thai Foot massage?
Thai foot massage is a deep and profound massage treatment working on the feet and lower legs, evolved from a combination of Chinese massage and Thai massage techniques. The principle is based on the link between the feet and the internal organs, and that most of the sensory nerves which innervate internal organs are rooted in the soles of the feet, so by working on the feet the activity of the internal organs is thought to be stimulated, similarly to Reflexology - in fact Thai Foot Massage is sometimes called ‘Thai Foot Reflexology’!
How can Thai foot massage help?
Thai foot massage aims to stimulate and balance the activity of the internal organs, and promote the circulation of blood and lymph, which in turn helps to encourage the natural elimination (or ‘detoxifying’) processes in the body. The treatment mobilises all parts of the feet, working the lower legs up to the knee. The feet and lower legs are left feeling refreshed and invigorated due to the improved circulation as a direct therapeutic effect of the treatment.
What to expect?
At the first appointment there will be a conversation about your general health which may take 10-15 minute. Treatment is carried out either on a comfortable futon mat on the floor, or a on massage table depending on your preference. Shoes and socks are removed, your feet will be cleaned, and oil or balm applied to the feet and lower legs. The treatment is carried out using massage techniques with hands and a special wooden stick to work specific reflex points, with the overall benefits of release tension and improve circulation.
