The Thai Foot Massage is one of the most well-known of all Thai Massage techniques. In Thailand, the Thai Foot Massage has its roots in the ancient Chinese massage which has been in use for more than 3,000 years. Thai Foot Massage is an energising and invigorating massage of the lower legs and feet. It involves hands-on stretching and massage to “open” Sen (energy) Lines, along with the use of a wooden stick to stimulate the reflex points on the feet which correspond to the internal organs of the body.
This treatment can be used as a preventative treatment promoting balance, increased energy levels, detoxification, improved health and well being.

A Thai Foot Massage is normally 1 hour long. It starts with refreshing the feet in a warm foot bath with a scrub. The Massage is practiced on the floor covered by mat or blanket, and client remains dressed in loose and comfortable clothing throughout the session.
Oil is applied on the feet and lower legs involving rhythmic relaxing massage techniques, stretches and thumbs (wooden stick) pressure throughout the treatment. Reflexology points on the sole of the foot are stimulated to increase energy levels, stimulate lymphatic drainage and immune system boost.
The treatment is completed with wrapping the lower legs and feet with warm towels. To promote detoxification and enhance the effect of this wonderful treatment the client will be offered a green tea.
