Reflexology - Thai Foot Massage

Updated on August 22, 2013

Thai Foot Massage (Foot reflex, Reflexology)

Thai massage is a real gift to your body and your soul. Thai massage is not the same as conventional body massage and it is often called "Thai Healing System".

Thai foot massage is a philosophy based on relationship between energy points on the feet and various internal organs and systems. Thai medicine considers feet to be a peculiar kind of root system of the body that needs correct caring.

Foot massage as well as Traditional Thai massage is intended to harmonize all human body processes through balancing 4 elements - earth, water, air, fire. An essential part of Thai foot massage philosophy is releasing blockages of the body.

What is Reflexology and how it`s work?

The essence of the reflexology is that massage of certain parts of feet and palms that are called reflex zones, causes a reaction in the related organs and systems, and it leads to recovery and relief of pain.

Nervous reflexes are supposed as the influencing on the body basis of the massage made with palms and feet. Pressing on the reflex zones, we affect the touch receptors, pain receptors, capillaries, lymph flow and deep muscle layers. At some point, when the pressure reaches a certain threshold, the receptors are beginning to send pulses to the central nervous system. Reinforcing each other, these signals are formed into a single powerful impulse.

The nervous system processes it and «sends» signals to the viscera that are projected in these zones. So the process of adjusting the functions of these organs begins.

Signals are also transmitted to the nerve fibers that manage the musculoskeletal system, so it gives the muscles a chance to relax. The flow of information that is transmitted at this moment to the central nervous system is so great that it interrupts all other signals, and the transmission of abnormal, painful nerve impulses stops.

Finally they are replaced with healthy ones.

Feelings thai foot massage

The foot massage is a sparing technique. In any case avoid pain feelings!

Did you feel pain?

Reduce the efforts while pressing! And if you're made the massage by someone else, make sure you’ve told him about it. Many people believe that the more pressure, the faster the healing process. This is a misleading.

Just the opposite! Pain creates stress, doesn’t let relax. But relaxation exactly is the aim of the massage made by feet.

So during the session, you have to stay in the zone of the comfortable feelings. Pain is a norm, but your massage therapist should be for sure informed about it in order to regulate the pressure.

Causes of the pain can be different. Often the pain is felt in the areas of projections of unhealthy organs. But it is not the rule. Our feet "record" information about everything that happens in our body over the life as well as recorder in the aircraft records the history of flight. These are the work progress of the on-board systems, instrumental readings, conversations and actions of the crew.

      This is the kind of explanation I would have loved to have, back 40 years ago when I received an old book on foot reflexology, to really bring the practice to life. It looks wonderful and makes a lot of sense.
