Thai Foot Reflexology is based upon ancient Chinese foot massage that has been used for more than 3000 years. It is believed that certain points along the foot correspond to different organs and systems throughout the body.
Thai Foot Reflexology Massage is an integral part of Traditional Thai Medicine that has developed in Thailand over the last 2000 years.
Through this technique we begin to stimulate these areas improving overall functioning of the internal organs, circulation of the blood and lymph as well as strengthening of the nervous and endocrine systems.
Techniques using the hands, thumbs and knuckles will be learned as well as proper use of the wooden reflexology stick for stimulating areas of the foot corresponding to organs in the body.
PLEASE NOTE: For U.K. accreditation purposes, we may only issue a certificate in 'Thai Foot Reflexology' to existing professional Reflexologists.
Should you not hold a professional Diploma in Reflexology, we will only be able to issue a certificate in 'Thai Foot Massage'.
Both F.H.T. and CTha have requested that we change the course name to Thai Foot Massage. Please contact us should this not be clear.
This is a professional workshop and a popular choice for therapists, reflexologists and complete beginners.
This course is for all levels of learners, however, an accreditation will only be granted to professional therapists holding a valid beauty/massage Diploma.
This hands-on program is an excellent technique to add on to your massage/body work professional career.
This technique can be performed as a stand alone treatment, but equally some of the techniques can be integrated into your existing foot and leg routine, as well as into a reflexology treatment.
A comprehensive manual covering the course content will be provided. The Thai stick & chart used during the course will be yours to keep.
The emphasis on this course is practical, the aim being to ensure that all trainees feel confident to add this new skill to their repertoire of therapies and are able to professionally offer the treatment to clients.
