History of Thai Foot Massage

Thai Foot Massage is the ultimate therapeutic and popular massage of the feet legs and hands. 

It originated in Thailand about 2000 years ago and is part of a traditional Thai Massage. Elements of Shiatsu, Chinese Massage and Yoga are incorporated into it as well . 

When Buddhism reached Thailand in the 2nd or 3rd Century BC, temples were built with adjacent dispensaries and medical schools. Massage and other healing arts were taught and applied in the monasteries and within the family.

Traditional Thai Massage and Thai Foot Massage compliment each other wonderfully. 

Thai Massage balances the elements of the mind and body, while Thai Foot Massage stimulates the internal Organs, giving the receiver an Holistic treatment.

The Influence of reflexology on this therapy plays a major role.  Reflexology is based on the premise that on the soles and the top of the feet there is a complete map of the human body. 

There are zones and reflex areas in the feet, which correspond to all glands, organs, parts and systems of the body.  The act of reading signs on the feet, understanding the client and of applying pressure using the thumb, finger and hand techniques through specialised combination's of pressure are an art.
