Foot Reflexology & Thai Reflexology
The feet represent a kind of microcosm of the body, ie all the organs, glands and other parts of the body are reflected in the feet. This phenomenon is repeated in the iris of the eye, ear and hands. Reflexes in the feet are much easier to localize, covering a larger area, making it possible to apply pressure in specific areas with accuracy. Our feet are key to maintaining our health and well-being, and can provide valuable information about the general state of the organism. This is the field of study and work of foot reflexology, a form of therapeutic massage that can prevent and help treat diseases, not only balancing the whole body but also the mind and emotions.
Thai Reflexology is a massage of the lower legs and feet to “open” Sen (energy) Lines, along with the use of a stick to stimulate the reflex points on the feet which correspond to the internal organs of the body. By stimulating the reflex points and energy lines we are able to encourage the mind and body to regain and maintain its general good health and natural balance.
The benefits of Foot Reflexology:
– Improved circulation and toxin removal.
– Stimulated lymphatic drainage and immune system boost.
– Reduced stiffness and improved flexibility.
– Accelerated physical healing
– Stress relief & improved sleep
Classic, Chinese & Thai Foot Reflexology acknowledge the interaction of the mind, the body and the spirit. Since stress can be mental, physical or emotional this approach is significant. Tension is held in the muscles, which affects nerves and circulation. As muscular tension is released, pain is lessened. As nerve function improves and blood and lymph circulates freely, overall health and wellbeing improves.
Royal Thai Reflexology is a signature treatment that starts with soaking the feet in a warm herbal footbath followed by exfoliation of lower legs and feet with our aromatic sea salt scrub. The energy lines and reflex points in the feet, lower legs and knees are stimulated using fingers, thumbs, knuckles and traditional wooden tools. You will leave the session feeling very relaxed, yet energized and invigorated.
Please wear loose fitting clothing that can be taken comfortably above the knee.
