CPD – THAI FOOT MASSAGE
Pre-requisite: Massage qualification or the equivalent!
Thai Foot Massage is actually a massage of the hands, legs and feet that originated in Thailand about 2000 years ago. It’s part of Traditional Thai massage and has elements of Shiatsu, Reflexology, Chinese Massage and Yoga incorporated into the massage itself. Its mechanics show a strong Indian Ayurvedic and yogic influence, but a very disciplined emphasis on energy channels betrays a link with Chinese Traditional Medicine.
The theory of Thai Foot Massage assumes the existence of ten major energy lines in the body which run from the top of the head all the way to the soles of the feet. The lines end in pressure points which reflect a complete map of the entire body and all its organs. By manipulating these different points the body and the mind are stimulated to restore the balance in that particular zone, and thereby throughout the whole body.
The ultimate goal of traditional Thai massage is for both the giver and the receiver to reach a state of enlightenment. On a mundane level, this massage exists to heal a person not only physically and emotionally but also spiritually. Like other styles of massage, traditional Thai massage increases vascular activity which breaks up and moves trapped toxins. Thai massage is unique because it releases all the toxins, both energetically and physiologically. As a consequence, clients don’t feel sedated after a session. On the contrary, clients feel centred and grounded after the massage.
Traditional Thai foot massage is characterised by its holistic approach to health. Its goal is to enhance not only one’s physical and emotional state but also to allow one to grow spiritually.
