A specialist pressure point massage to the feet, this treatment is deeply relaxing and has been reported to give a wide variety of health benefits. It is believed to work on the principle that points on the feet correspond to the rest of the body and by stimulating these points we may promote the body’s own ability to heal itself. Reflexology has been shown to reduce stress, increase energy levels and release the body’s own natural pain relievers thus may reduce pain.

Thai Foot Massage
Is practised everywhere in Thailand today and is a primary component of traditional Thai medicine. Using thumbs, hands and a wooden acupressure tool, massage is applied to the lower legs and feet. As the main reflex points are stimulated, thai foot massage may be effective in relieving various dysfunctions and disorders and is also a wonderful treatment to promote overall health, increase energy and provide a sense of wellbeing. It can also improve circulation and lymphatic drainage in the legs and feet and reduce their stiffness and improve flexibility. Particularly recommended for sports enthusiasts and those that spend a predominant amount of time on their feet!
