By just focusing on the feet, as Reflexologists know the whole of the body can be “touched”. Thai Foot Massage is not as prescriptive as Reflexology and is a more general treatment to encourage relaxation.

There is the space for quiet inner reflection as the Massage takes place either in silence or with gentle music ; it may feel like a “meditation in motion”. 

In Thai Medicine it is believed that blocks in the bodies’ energy lines attribute to dis-ease and discomfort hence the joint mobilisation exercises, stretching of the muscles, stimulating energy points will cumulatively encourage the free flow of “sen” and encourage waste materials and toxins to flush from the body.

Thai Massage is about bringing the body and mind into a state of harmony and ease. Clients notice different things maybe it’s an increase in flexibility/ mobility, perhaps they feel lighter as the blood and lymph flow have been stimulated, maybe pain may have been released or they may feel heavier, more connected to the ground. Each Client and session is different.

Thai Massage is an ideal style for anyone who is keen to remain flexible, to learn how to become able to let go of “being in control”, to bring the mind and body to a sense of “equilibrium”; natural body balance. It can sooth and restore, create harmony and transform!
