The Traditional Medical Massage of Thailand, more commonly known as ‘Thai Massage’ is one of the worlds oldest healing modalities.

Healthy and glowing skin is one of the most important beauty assets. Massage stimulates circulation and brings more oxygen to the face. It also stimulates the production of collagen and tightens the skin. It also delays the onset of wrinkles. In addition, wrinkles on the forehead are often caused due to involuntary tightening of the muscles. Massage relaxes the muscles, and delays the formation of forehead wrinkles.
Foot Reflexology is a type of Foot Massage that is meant for more than just feeling good. Where a basic Foot Massage has particular strokes that are solely meant to relax the feet as well as the person, Foot Reflexology is meant to increase the health and well being in the whole body.
It’s a science which deals with the principle that there are reflex areas in the feet which correspond to all of the glands, organs and parts of the body. Stimulating these reflexes properly can help many health problems in a natural way, a type of preventative maintenance. Based on the idea that all nerve zones begin in the feet, foot reflexology is thought to cure many ailments. By massaging certain areas of the foot, and applying certain pressures and strokes to particular areas, a practitioner of reflex zone therapy can provide many benefits.
