Thai foot massage
Ancient Thai foot massage, Nuad Pan Boran, has its roots in taoist China, wherefrom come the reflexology maps of feet. The foot massage is the application of pressure onto particular areas of the soles of the feet which stimulates a reflex action in another part of the body – during massage certain reflexology points can feel tender. This may tell about stress or disorders in the given part of the body. Working with the feet, lower leg and knees, the foot reflexology massage uses techniques of hands, fingers, thumbs, knuckles and a rounded wooden stick, which come from the healing arts of Chinese Tuina, Reflexology & Japanese Shiatsu, combining these with lotions and oils and smooth sliding movements on calf & knee, originating from the ancient Indian Ayurvedic teaching. This 2000 year old, highly reputed healing style follows the same energy meridians within the body as Thai traditional massage nuad bo rarn – the sen lines.
According to acupuncture and acupressure theory, there are 7200 sensory nerve endings in each foot connected to the internal organs that spread throughout the body. Consequently, the massage is effective in stimulating the functions of the internal organs, improving circulation and lymphatic drainage in feet and legs, ameliorating digestive and excretive functions, and also lessening psychic stress or depression. It is especially suitable for people working on their feet. In summer with hot weather it can reduce the swelling of the feet.
