Thai Foot

Thai Foot Massage - £149.00

This is a massage of the lower legs and feet that originated in Thailand about 2000 years ago. As seen everywhere in Thailand today it has developed from traditional Thai massage and has elements of Shiatsu, Reflexology, Chinese massage and Yoga incorporated into the routine.

The massage involves hands on stretching and massage to ‘open’ Sen (energy) lines, along with the use of other techniques to stimulate the reflex points on the feet and hands, which correspond to the internal organs of the body.

The massage stimulates these reflex points to promote general health and well being, promote self healing, ease tension and increase flexibility.

New - Experience the luxury of a Deep Tissue or Swedish Massage with warm, luxurious bamboo sticks for an exotic and deeply relaxing and rejuvenating full-body experience. Incredible for relieving stress! A deeply emotional and spiritual treatment and therapy. This course is for existing therapists with existing massage qualifications. The prerequisite for this course is an Anatomy and Physiology certificate and Massage qualification (Swedish, Holistic or Body). We accept one certificate which combines both or individual certificates if you have gained these qualifications separately. For centuries bamboo has been a vital part of everyday life throughout South East Asia. No one knows who first started to use bamboo tools to help ease the tired muscles of family members but it was only natural that they would fashion massage tools out of the material that had come to signify good luck, long life, friendship, peace and harmony. Before being applied to the body the Bamboo tools are warmed in the salon towel heater. The application of the warm bamboo melts away the tensions while at the same time creating a deeply relaxing and soothing experience. The tools are switched from time to time to maintain that warm bamboo feel. During this practitioner workshop you will learn how to use the bamboo tools to give your clients that extra special touch of bamboo which will have the following benefits.

Benefits Include the following:

  • Calms the nervous system
  • Decreases muscular deterioration

Bamboo massage will reach whatever level of spirituality you’re at. If you don’t connect with the Cho sticks on a spiritual level, if you don’t bring that body/mind/spirit awareness to your session, then two people are losing - you and your client. Even for those that are not able to connect as deep or as high, there will be an experience. They will be able to feel and understand that something profound has taken place.

It is not unusual that the effects of Bamboo therapy continue for days after the session. It is as if you have opened a portal and allowed the newness of the experience to enter and linger there.
