Thai foot massage has elements of shiatsu, reflexology, chinese massage and yoga, all incorporated into the massage itself. It has also become an integral part of Thai massage.
Thai foot massage involves hands on stretching and massage, along with use of a stick to stimulate the reflex points which correspond to the internal organs of the body. These reflex points are stimulated to promote general health and wellbeing. To this day it is still taught and practised in the temples of Thailand.
