Thai Foot Massage
What is Thai Foot Massage?
This is an ancient, holistic treatment passed down generations – originated in Thailand. It is a wonderful blend of Chinese reflexology/acupressure and massage, Indian Ayurvedic principals and even Japanese Shiatsu. A great holistic treatment that is relaxing and healing at the same time.
There is a complete map of the human body on the soles and tops of the feet. There are zones and reflex areas that correspond to all glands, organs and systems of the body. These points get stimulated by the therapists hands and a small rosewood aid.

After a treatment
The term ‘grounded’ describes the deeply relaxed feeling the recipient will experience for many hours or even days following the treatment. Therefore the recipient should take some time to enjoy the deep state of relaxation and slowly come back to full awareness.
After the session the body finds it easier to flush out any ‘waste’. The recipient will gain maximum benefit from the treatment if resting afterwards and drinking plenty of water – being aware of the detoxifying effect for about 48 hours after the treatment.
