Traditional Thai Foot Massage is an ancient form of therapeutic healing. Its roots are in India from where it was brought to Thailand over 2000 years ago by Ayurvedic doctors and Buddhist monks. It combines acupressure, energy balancing and stretching. Whereas most traditional western and eastern massage practices focus on tissue manipulation and the working of the muscles and joints, Thai massage barely touches on either of these. It is more a manipulation of the pressure points, energy lines and basic body forces which together produce a highly therapeutic effect.
How Does It Work?
Using thumbs, hands and a wooden acupressure tool, massage is applied to the lower legs and feet using rubbing, kneading, stretching and vibration techniques. (There is no need to undress, as long as the lower legs and feet are exposed).
