Revitalise tired feet with Thai foot massage, straight from Wat Po temple in Thailand.
How it works
I had my first Thai Foot Massage in Chang Mai after a 3 day trek in the jungle- I knew I had to learn! Whether you have been trekking, running, walking or festivalling this is a wonderful treatment to keep your feet sweet.
Pressure points are used to rebalance the body’s energy along with firm massage using traditional Thai foot lotion with it's distinctive smell of wintergreen and menthol.
As this massage works on the lower leg and feet you can just roll your trousers up, no need to undress.
What to expect
The feet and legs are massaged up to just above the knee. We start with a gentle cleanse of the feet before firm pressure massage is used to ease the aches out of the tiny intricate muscles of the feet and ankles that we all take for granted.
Thai foot lotion smells of wintergreen, menthol and eucalyptus which refreshes the skin and the senses. It is worked in by hand and with the special Thai 'pokey stick' which really gets the blood and energy moving.
I trained at Wat Po Traditional Medical School in Bangkok which is next to The Golden Palace with its statue of the reclining Buddha. On Buddha's feet are the traditional symbols indicating the pressure points used to rebalance the body and the Sen energy lines.
To complete the massage, to reground you and leave your feet "feeling like fluffy clouds" I will wrap your feet in towels in the traditional way.
