Thai Foot massage is a treatment of the lower legs and feet that involves massaging and some gentle stretch to open the Sen (energy) lines. There are 10 major energy lines that run throughout the body from the top of the head down to the soles of the feet, where they end as pressure points.
You lie comfortably on a massage couch, with your legs (below the knees) and feet exposed. A massage oil or balm is applied and massaged into these areas. Using a special wooden stick (carved from sustainable Teak), 23 of the main reflex points are stimulated on the soles of the feet. The final part of the treatment involves your lower legs and feet being wrapped in linen and gentle stretches applied.
Thai Foot massage is reported to:
· facilitate relaxation
· invigorate the nervous system
· ease pain and muscular tension
· giving a general feeling of well being
· enhances elimination of wastes from physical, mental and emotional strain
