What is Thai Reflexology?
Thai reflexology applies pressure to particular areas of the soles of the feet.
Hands, fingers, thumbs, knuckles and a rounded wooden Thai foot massage stick are used to stimulates certain areas of the feet releasing blocked energy within the body’s many Sens lines (Thai-based meridians).
This helps to balance and restore a healthy flow of energy throughout the body as well as dispersing a build up of crystals of calcium and uric acid (toxic wastes)
How does Thai Reflexology work?
Thai Reflexology developed in a country that relied on an understanding of energy and how its status in the body defined wellness or dis-ease. Based on explicit trust of the nature of the human body to seek homeostasis, Thai Reflexology works solely to assist the body to return to equilibrium, as opposed to directing influence to specific organs.
Similar to the meridians of Traditional Chinese Medicine that carry the Qi or Chi energy, the Thai Medicine "energy lines" know as Sen run though out the entire body with specific points ending at the feet and hands. The obstruction of this flow of energy is the root cause of discomfort or illness in a person and the techniques of Thai Foot Massage stimulate and open these channels.
