Thai foot reflexology
Our feet are our foundation. They connect us to the earth and carry the weight of our bodies. The state of our feet has a direct relationship to our posture, our bone structure, our gait, and our musculature.¹ Therefore, taking care of our feet is essential to the optimal functioning and well-being of the rest of the body.
How Thai Foot Reflexology Works
According to acupuncture and acupressure theory, there are 7,200 sensory nerve endings in each foot, which are connected to the internal organs of the body. Thai foot reflexology is based on the belief that there are zones and reflex areas in the feet which correspond to the systems of the body. Reading signs on the feet, understanding the client, and applying combinations of pressure using the hands and a Thai Foot Reflexology stick is the foundation and art of this highly reputed technique.
In a typical session, the lower legs and feet are stretched and massaged to open Sen (energy lines). Then specific pressure points, which stem from 10 major energy lines that run throughout the body, are stimulated. These pressure points provide a map of the entire body and organs. Through skillful manipulation of the soles of the feet, Thai foot reflexology helps the body restore its own natural healthy balance. Your session will end with a mini Thai Massage to stimulate the rest of the body and circulate any stagnant energy that was released during your Thai Foot Reflexology session.
