About Thai Foot Massage This therapy involves stretching and massage of the feet and lower legs, and a rosewood stick is used to stimulate reflex points on the soles of the feet. It is a very popular treatment for balancing the energy and stimulating the organs, & is pleasantly restorative. Thai Foot massage has been practiced in Thailand for 2000 years and has a rich history. Some techniques used originated in India, Japan, China, and Indonesia, which made their way along the silk roads and became integrated with the traditions of Thai medicine. In Thailand today it is practised by Buddhist monks in the sacred environment of the Temple, and also can be enjoyed in clinics or by the roadside at the market. It is a simple yet rewarding treatment that can be learned in one day.
