What is Thai foot massage?

A common question is, "How is Thai Foot Massage different from Reflexology?"


The main difference is the importance of massage within the treatment.


Reflexology focuses on working individual and precise reflex points with some gentle pressure, which is used to help the treatment flow as well as to help us feel deeply relaxed. 

Thai Foot Massage, on the other hand, is more about using massage to open up and encourage the flow of energy, along with the use of a stick to stimulate the reflex points on the feet. 



Thai Foot Massage is a great option if you're on your feet a lot and find that your feet or legs 

ache at the end of the day.  This is because it works all the muscles and joints of the lower legs and leaves you feeling like you are floating on air.


Reflexology is a great option if you are feeling stressed, irritable or anxious.  This is because it has a lovely calming quality, which allows deep relaxation, centring us and helping us to unwind.

The history of Thai foot massage


Thai foot massage was developed about 5000 years ago.  Over the years it incorporated foot massage techniques from places such as China, Japan, and Korea. Historically, the original knowledge and techniques were carefully guarded secrets kept by the Buddhist monks of the Thai Royal Palace. They have since have been passed down through the generations. It has been one of the most effective and revered forms of massage in the Orient, and eventually all over the world.
