Thai Foot Massage: In Thailand Foot Reflexology is a Very Social Time

$75/1 Hr. or $115/1.5 Hr.

Numerous practitioners shops line the streets of Thailand, and foot reflexology is a daily routine in their culture. According to Thai tradition, it is important to be comfortably seated with the feet resting on a footstool while receiving Thai Foot Reflexology. The session starts with a warm footbath and continues with light pressure from the therapists fingers and hands. Deeper work begins with a traditional wooden teak stick, alternating relaxing “sabaai” hand techniques and deeper “jep” sticking techniques. The entire foot & lower legs are included. Full sessions take an entire hour.

History of Thai Foot Reflexology

Thailand has had Thai Foot Reflexology for about 2,000 years. It is one of the greatest and most relaxing experiences in the world. Foot reflexology originally came from China and in its original form is a very deep, slow massage to treat the internal organs and stimulate the acupuncture meridians balancing the energies in the body.

Thai Foot Reflexology itself was greatly influenced by its various neighbors mainly China and particularly India. When the Thai’s met reflexology they softened the technique and made it more pleasurable with a wide variety of “sabaai” relaxing techniques to off set the “jep” deeper techniques of the Chinese approach. The result is a blend of Chinese Reflexology, Thai Acupressure points and “Sen Line” work along with wonderfully stimulating and relaxing hand techniques.
