What is Thai Foot, Leg & Hand Massage?

 

History.  Traditional Thai massage is an ancient form of therapeutic healing. Its roots are in India from where it was brought to Thailand over 2000 years ago by Ayurvedic doctors and Buddhist monks. It combines acupressure, energy balancing, stretching and applied yoga exercises. Traditional Thai Foot Massage is a unique and powerful therapy. Most traditional western and eastern massage practices focus on tissue manipulation and the working of the muscles and joints. Our Thai Massage touches on both of these.  Through heat (Hot~Stones) long muscle kneading and massage, also working of the pressure points, energy lines, and basic body forces which together produce a highly therapeutic effect.

  

How Does it work?  Using a wooden acupressure tool massage to the feet and, thumbs, fingers, hands to the lower legs, thighs and buttocks through rubbing, kneading, stretching and vibration techniques.  We can also use Hot~Stones to give a more beneficial and deeper penetrating massage too.

 

In Thai foot massage there are ten major energy lines we work with (although there are thought to be 72,000 through out the whole body!).  By focusing on these ten energy, or Sen Lines, we work on Reflex/ pressure points on the feet which correspond to various internal organs, through which life energy, prana, Chi or Ki flows.

 

It is believed that blockages within the flow will result in pain, illness or disease. By working along these lines with pressure, and by stretching the lines, blocked energy can be released and functions balanced much like the practice of Acupuncture, Acupressure and Shiatsu.

 

The benefits of Thai Foot massage include: 

It can improve the circulations in the legs and feet (We work on the leg muscles too not just feet)

It stimulates lymphatic drainage

It helps to boost the immune system

It can help remove / reduce body toxins

It increases oxygen to the body

It can reduce stiffness and improve flexibility

Other benefits include: Detoxification and strengthening of the immune system, thus preventing disease

Acceleration of physical healing

Dealing with stress

Help with insomnia

Assists with relaxation and mental tiredness

 

Leg Massage is perfect for relieving tension in the upper and lower leg muscle groups (Front & Back of legs), this in turn helps support the back and promote good / better posture.  It can help improve circulation, smooth and re-vitalise the legs.  It can also help prevent the formation of cellulite or break down existing buildup.

 

It helps sports people with the deep penetrative ability of the Hot~Stones into the muscles improving circulation and encouraging the release of toxins.  It is effective at loosening tight muscles and reducing the build up of lactic acid.  (Please note any areas with varicose veins cannot be treated).

The “Treat”ment will take about 60 minutes without Aromatherapy / 90 minutes with Aromatherapy to allow for discussion, paperwork and refreshment etc.  For the massage, we have disposable tanning briefs available, or you can wear older briefs, if you feel more comfortable shorts, however, they impede access to the glutes with the heat & oils..  Please wear what you are comfortable in.  We will always discuss the 'Contact Contract' and any clothing adjustments to be made.  We use towels to cover your body, your modesty will be respected at all times.  

 

We are advised not to carry out Aromatherapy and or Thai Foot and Hand Massage during early pregnancy.  However, after 37/38 weeks and with the knowledge of midwifes we are happy to carry out massage with the use of Clary Sage Oil also. 

 

Your modesty will be respected at all times.  You will be covered with towels which will be strategically rolled back to allow an area of the body to be massaged.  I / we will leave the room to allow privacy when you are getting changed.

 

We offer Aromatherapy Workshops <Link>

Would you like to share some time learning about the amazing properties of the essential oils we use?  Create your very own lotion, cream or room spray?

We are obliged by professional membership and "ethics" to conduct a Face to Face consultation in order to discuss contraindications and determine the best fragrance blend for your by process of oil selection.

 

We offer Aromatherapy blends of:-  Cocoa Butters, Creams, Lotions, Massage Oils & Room Sprays.  We still need to carry out a blending consultation in order to ensure the product is made to best suit you / your needs. The oils are FAB in the bath to add some luxury to your bath, the creams for general hand / foot use.  We suggest they have around a 3 to 4 month life once blended into the carrier products.  We can create the same blends again within the 3 to 4 month period, however, we suggest a review after this as it will help us determine change, this too is an educational process.

 

Before arrival we request / suggest you be freshly showered / bathed, this is to ensure you are able to keep the oils on your body for longer when you return home, you will not need to shower or bathe again before bed.  For the massage, we have disposable tanning briefs available, or we suggest older briefs be worn, if you feel more comfortable you may wear shorts too. 

 

Please wear what you are comfortable in, (please avoid nylon or silken clothing) as this can generate static electricity. We will discuss any adjustment of clothing to accommodate Hot~Stones placement, access etc with you. 

We will always discuss the 'Contact Contract' to ensure we are happy to proceed with the massage.

 

We suggest wearing older clothes for after as the oils may lightly stain clothing etc.  We use towels to cover your body, your modesty will be respected at all times.
