Waree is always happy to share her passion for Thai foot massage, Reflexology and Acupressure.

Thai Foot reflexology is a deeper type of Foot Massage using sensitive Thai and Chinese techniques. We work on a 70 point Chinese Foot reflexology program on each foot and combine that with Thai style relaxing foot massage.

Foot reflexology is one of the holistic medicines to improve the whole system of the human body, by stimulating reflex zones on feet. Theories of reflexology are based on the thought that the tip of a human body reflects his whole body. When you stimulate a specific zone (reflex zone) on your foot, the stimulus reaches the reflected organ through the central or peripheral nervous system to raise an organic flow, set with energy balance between other organs, and finally raise the natural ability to cure themselves that the human body originally has. There are more than 70 reflex zones on feet.

Foot reflexology was found in ancient cultures such as Egypt and China. Over 5,000 years ago our ancestors massaged each other’s feet. In the late 1800s, Europeans invented reflexology: applying pressure to a person’s feet (or hands) in order to affect a physical change to the body. Placement of pressure is based on a system of zones and reflex areas that correspond to other parts of the body.

Also called “zone therapy,” this mixture of healing art and science is based on the premise that an energy channel encompassing 12 vital organs exist from our feet to the tops of our heads. Applying pressure with hands, a reflexologist unblocks the channels to restore more optimal health and organ function.

Foot Reflexology Massage would use the finger or knuckles to press down on each reflex point. There are more than 70 reflex zones on each foot. Each point is a nerve ending that is linked to important organs in the body and there are more than 70 sensations. 

What Thai Foot Reflexology Massage helps with?

Foot reflexology improves the health condition of the whole body as below:

  • Gradually fixes hormone balance by stimulating the endocrine system.
  • Raises resistance against pathogens by stimulating the immune system.
  • It helps improve the digestive system's organs.
  • Prompts urinary organs to filter waste materials from the blood, and to release it with urine.

Effects of foot reflexology include those of foot massage. To make the circulation of blood and lymph flow better, to promote the resolution and excretion of accumulated waste material, to take fatigue off muscle, and to ease swollen feet. All are very important.

As the foot is the farthest part from the heart and is usually in the lowest area in the body, waste materials are easily accumulated due to poor circulation of blood and lymph. Foot reflexology breaks and softens structures of the foot which become tense with the deposit from its strong pressure, pick it up and blood and lymph stream, and finally drain it from kidney.
