Thai Foot Massage is a massage of the
lower legs and feet that originated in Thailand about
2000 years ago. It has become an integral part of traditional
Thai massage and has elements of Shiatsu, Reflexology,
Chinese massage and Yoga incorporated into the massage
itself. Thai Foot Massage involves hands on stretching
and massage, along with the use of a stick to stimulate
the reflex points. It is still taught by Buddhist monks
