For many people, feet are the most heavily worked part of the body. Whether you go to a gym or not, your feet are exercising, taking you from place to place.
In fact the average person walks between 5,000 and 7,000 steps per day, and those who are active, even more. A tourist visiting a foreign county may walk an average of 12,000 – 15,000 steps each day throughout the course of their travels. And while walking is natural, healthy, and beneficial for your body, it can take a toll on your feet.Traditional Thai foot massage is extremely beneficial for helping to restore your overworked feet, as well as your entire body, to a relaxed and stress-free state.
Traditional Thai foot massage is a therapeutic massage that is performed on certain areas located along the soles of the feet as well as the toes and, occasionally, on the lower leg region as well. Traditional Thai foot massage is an ancient form of massage which originated in China over 2,000 years ago, before being brought to Thailand, where it has been practiced and revered ever since, as an invigorating and relaxing way to restore the body using hands-on massaging techniques combined with stimulation to target stress points located along the foot. Traditional Thai foot massage therapists implement many different techniques in order to manipulate these points, including using their palms, knuckles, fingers and thumbs to relieve stress.However, traditional Thai foot massage is not just for those with tired or abused feet.
This invigorating massage has many restorative advantages for the body as well as the mind. Thai massage has been shown to improve circulation throughout the feet, legs and entire body, as well helping to achieve greater tone and flexibility within the muscles of the feet and lower leg region. It also provides stress relief for both your body and your mind, lifting your mood and improving your general state of being.After all, the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step, so treat your feet right, and they’ll do the same for you!
