Thai foot massage is the application of pressure onto particular areas of the soles of the feet. A reflex action in another part of the body is stimulated by the manipulation of each specific area.
Foot reflexology massage uses hands, fingers, thumbs, knuckles, and a rounded wooden stick with lotion or oil.
Practiced for thousands or years in Thailand, it is an ancient therapeutic procedure which has become popular in the Western world.
Originally the knowledge and techniques were passed down through generations by Buddhist monks.
Thai foot reflexology is a marriage between the ancient and modern healing arts.
Provides relaxation, balancing the body's various systems, and generating healthy blood circulation. The aim is to activate good health and mental serenity. Crystals of calcium and uric acid (toxic wastes) that have built up in the body are dispersed.
It can help aid relief from stress, back and other chronic pain, allergies, high blood pressure, sleep disorder, fibromyalgia, migraine, arthritis, diabetes, kidney, and digestive problems.
Reflexology helps the body regain and maintain its general good health and natural balance.
