What Is Thai Massage?

The Thai foot massage incorporates elements of Shiatsu, Reflexology, and Chinese massage, therefore it can also treat internal body organs, improving overall well being.
This technique dates back more than two thousand years, working on ‘Sen’ lines, the equivalent Ayurvedic tradition to Chinese Medicine meridians. The methods of Thai Foot Massage are used to stimulate and open these energy channels, leaving you feeling relaxed, balanced and invigorated.
