Thai Foot Massage (25 hours)

Thai Foot Reflexology is a relaxing, yet invigorating treatment of the feet that was greatly influenced by two of Thailand’s closest neighbors, China and India, and their reflexology systems that are 1000’s of year old.

When the Thai’s met Chinese reflexology they softened the technique, making it more pleasurable with a wide variety of “sabaai”, relaxing techniques, to off set the “jep”, deeper techniques, of the Chinese approach. The result is a blend of Chinese Reflexology, Thai acupressure points and “Sen Line” work along with wonderfully stimulating and relaxing hand techniques.

Similar to the meridians of Traditional Chinese Medicine that carry the Qi or Chi energy, the Thai Medicine “energy lines” know as Sen run though out the entire body with specific points, ending at the feet and hands. The obstruction of this flow of energy is thought to be the cause of discomfort or illness in a person; and the techniques of Thai Foot Refloxology are thought to stimulate and open these channels.

During a typical Thai Foot Reflexology session a Thai practitioner will apply a special Thai balm and use a variety of hands-on techniques including graceful two handed palm movements, stretches, circular massage movements and thumb pressure; along with the use of a special Thai stick, made out of teak, for specific acupressure to stimulate organ reflex points on the soles of the feet. Clients leave the session feeling relaxed, balanced and invigorated.
