Thai Foot Massage
What is Thai Foot Massage?
Thai Foot Massage is a traditional foot massage that has been practiced for over two thousand years.
The Massage used today has evolved though influences from Shiatsu, Reflexology, Chinese massage and
Indian Ayurvedic practices.
Thai Foot Massage is not a soft soothing massage but more a invigorating, revitalising and deeply relaxing massage.
The techniques used promote general good health and well being for the whole body
and bring you to a very relaxed, peaceful but energised state.
If you have had reflexology then Thai Foot Massage is similar except it is more of a massage.
Who can benefit from Thai Foot Massage?
Although a foot and lower leg massage, Thai Foot Massage is able to relax and balance your whole body.
Each part of the foot relates to a part of the body so as the foot is being massaged so the related parts of
the body are also treated, similar to reflexology.
Thai foot massage is very relaxing so can help anyone who needs relaxation without having to get undressed.
The massage can be performed with you lying on a couch or on a relaxing chair so can benefit people
who are not able to move well or have restrictions on whether they can lie or sit.
Anyone with feet injuries or conditions or has problems with balance or not feeling gounded will benefit.
If you have oedema, water retention or imflammation in the feet or lower legs, Thai Foot Massage along with Manual Lymphatic Drainage can help. These treatments will help to improve your lymphatic drainage and over time reduce the swelling. This will also help with any neuropathy (nerve damage) in the feet.
