Thai foot massage is a massage of the lower legs and feet, applying pressure to specific reflex points using a wooden Thai foot stick, and working on the meridian or sen lines to energise and create balance to the body. The client remains fully clothed and the range of movements used throughout the treatment make it extremely popular and beneficial for your client and enjoyable for the therapist. The treatment involves stretches and alternative massage techniques applied to the lower legs, feet, head, neck, shoulders and back and incorporates the use of the therapist’s elbows and feet.
