What happens in a Thai Foot Massage Treatment?
The client should wear loose comfortable trousers and top for this treatment (definitely not a skirt/dress). The treatment takes place on a couch and incorporates feet, ankles legs, hips, hands and wrists. It is an ultimately relaxing treatment, addressing many reflex, acupressure points together with massage and movement.
Reiki and/or crystals can be added into a Thai Foot Massage session at the clients discretion. This can be discussed initially when the client consultation form is being completed, this will also highlight any contraindications to the treatment.
When the treatment is finished there is time for feedback and questions and advice on aftercare and potential reactions to the treatment.
Appointment time about one hour
How many treatments should I have?

More about Thai Foot Massage:
Thai Foot Massage is an ancient method of massage which incorporates aspects of Reflexology, Shiatsu, Chinese Massage and Yoga. It can be traced back to over 2,000 years and appears 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 and stretching which helps to work the ligaments, muscles, nerves, joints and internal organs. In addition to this, Thai massage stimulates prana, ki, chi or lifeforce energy by encouraging the flow through pressure on specific energy points, thereby encouraging the body to reassert natural balance and flow which in turns encourages the body to self heal. TFM Can help to:
- Relieve stress, tension and anxiety
- Boost the immune system
- Improve flexibility
- Aid Insomnia
- Aid Mental Fatigue
- Stimulate the release of toxins through lymphatic drainage
- Improve the circulation in the legs, hands and feet.
- Improve the chi flow through the body
Overall Thai Foot Massage can provide a sense of very deep relaxation and well being as it is considered to be both physical and spiritual treatment. During the treatment it is hoped that both the client and the practitioner reach a state of relaxation as the procedure should be a meditative process not unlike that of Indian Head Massage. However, following a session the client should feel centred and grounded rather than floaty and ungrounded.
