Thai hand and foot massage originated in Thailand and it is believed that is has been practised for around 2500 years.

This is a very firm, refreshing, revitalising and detoxing massage that provides many health benefits. This form of massage incorporates aspects of reflexology, acupressure, shiatsu, ayuverda, yoga, traditional massage and lymphatic drainage.

The massage involves using a variety of massage pressures with the fingers and the whole hand, sometimes a thai massage stick is used. The hands and feet are massaged and stretched. Reflex points are stimulated and sen lines (similar to the meridian lines in Chinese medicine) are followed clearing energy blockages that can manifest as symptoms of dis – ease.

Although the techniques involved in Thai hand and foot massage involve direct manipulation of only the lower limbs, hands and feet the potential benefits are widespread. This treatment can restore joint movement and mobility; relieve tension and fibrous adhesions in the lowers limbs, hands and feet. The massage techniques can also substantially reduce pain and restriction in these areas.

This treatment is deeply relaxing and can relieve stress and tension, improve circulation, enhance concentration and clear thinking and create a feeling of mental calmness and physical well being which can last several days following treatment

Please note that due to some of the techniques used it is advisable to wear loose trousers or shorts to protect your dignity! A consultation prior to treatment is mandatory to ensure that there is no reason the treatment should not proceed eg early pregnancy, recent stroke or heart conditions.

I have had good feedback on the affects of the hand massage on stiff/arthritic/clawed hands, if you suffer with lack of mobility or flexibility in your hands you may want to look up your local Thai Massage therapist!
