Thai Foot Massage is an ancient method of massage which incorporates aspects of Reflexology, Shiatsu, Chinese and Thai Massage. It is an excellent skill to complement your current therapies (including western Reflexology) as well as being a strong foundation for starting your own therapy practice.
It can be traced back to over 2,000 years and is known to be strongly influenced by the Indian Ayurvedic system of healing as well as the aspects of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
As opposed to western massage Thai massage is a treatment which combines the benefits of massage with pressure point stimulation. In addition to this Thai massage stimulates prana, ki, chi or life force energy by encouraging the flow through pressure on specific energy points which thereby encourages the body to achieve natural balance and flow.
