Traditional Thai Foot Massage is a unique and powerful therapy and an ancient form of therapeutic healing. Its roots are in Indian from where it was bought to Thailand over 2,000 years ago by Ayurvedic doctors and Buddhist monks. It combines acupressure, energy balancing and stretching with applied yoga exercises. As Buddhism proliferated throughout India, it carried with it this healing medicine. For centuries it was performed by monks.
Where as most traditional western and eastern massage practices focus on tissue manipulation and the working of the muscles and joints, Thai massage is more a manipulation of the pressure points on energy lines and basic body forces, which together produces a highly therapeutic effect.
