Thai foot massage originated approximately 2000 years ago and was originally used within households amongst family members to cure any ailments. It was strongly influenced by the Indian Ayurvedic system of healing as well as having aspects of traditional Chinese medicine and elements of shiatsu, reflexology, Chinese massage and yoga
Thai foot massage is a wonderfully relaxing massage of the feet and lower legs, various points of the feet and legs are kneaded, stretched, massaged and pressed, with particular pressure from the thumbs and knuckles as well as using a traditional foot massage stick to stimulate reflex points. Thai foot massage treats the body as a whole as it incorporates elements of reflexology (certain points on the foot correspond to other areas of the body) therefore all the major body parts and internal organs are stimulated. Thai massage is also known for its work on energy lines also called “Sen Lines” in Thailand. Many Asian body massages and holistic therapies are based on energy lines or sen lines on the body. If the energy lines or sen lines are blocked, illness can develop. In Thailand it is called “Sen”, in China it is called “Chi”, in Japan “Ki”, and in India it is called “Prana” As the reflex points on the feet are stimulated any blockages or 'stuck' energy is released allowing a better flow of energy around the body, promoting healing.
Thai foot massage can be effective in healing many ailments as well as being a wonderful treatment for promoting overall heath and providing a sense of well being.
