This ancient technique directly stimulates the nervous system through the application of gentle yet firm pressure to acupressure points – primarily in the feet – which correspond to glands, organs and muscles throughout the body, promoting healing in these areas.
Thai foot massage is a deeply relaxing and therapeutic treatment. It is based on the ancient Chinese theory that in a healthy body, energy is flowing freely – and if that energy becomes obstructed, then illness may result.
Thai foot massage works on the principle that the feet mirror the body. All the organs, systems and glands of the body have a corresponding area on the feet, known as reflex points. Our therapists know how to stimulate the reflex points in order to treat the corresponding body part.
Thai foot massage is a holistic treatment which works on your mind, body and spirit as a whole, rather than treating just one specific area. For instance, if you are suffering from stress, you may experience headaches and tension pain.
Likewise, a physical condition can be emotionally draining. Thai foot massage aims to redress the energy balance in your body and mind as a whole, which many believe to be more effective than working directly on just one area.

* Joint pain
* Breathing disorders
