traditional thai foot massage - Charmaine Clarke
Traditional Thai Foot Massage is a unique therapy. It combines acupressure, energy balancing and stretching with applied yoga exercises. Whereas most traditional western massage practises focus on tissue manipulation and the working of the muscles and joints, Thai massage barely touches on either of these. It is more a manipulation of the pressure points, energy lines, and basic body forces which together produce a highly therapeutic effect.
