Thai Reflexology can be done with the client lying on a massage table. Thai Foot Massage can be done with the client on a massage table instead of on a floor mat. Both styles are not limited to Thai Massage. They can be blended and used with other massage modalities as well. In Thailand foot massage is very popular, and for good reasons. From a healthy point of view, working on the feet is not only beneficial for the feet, but it affects the entire body. This is the primary concept of reflexology. From an enjoyment point of view, foot massage takes top credits. There are two main styles of Thai Foot Massage: The first style is part of the whole-body Thai Massage system. Traditionally Thai Massage sessions start with a foot massage, and then the therapists work their way up the body. These sessions are generally done on a floor mat, with the client fully dressed, and without application of oil. Since working without oil largely prevents sliding or stroking movements, the techniques consist primarily of pressure points and various foot manipulations and stretches. Therapists use their thumbs, forearms, elbows, and even knees and feet to work in the supine, prone and side position. The second style is not used as part of a whole-body massage, but is mostly focused on the feet only. This is generally done with the client sitting in a comfortable way, The therapist is sitting on a small stool or chair while working on the feet. Since oil or lotion is used for this type of foot massage, the techniques are mostly stroking moves with thumbs, knuckles or the entire palm. This style is the Thai version of foot reflexology. Generally, this type of foot massage also includes working on the calf muscles. Often neck, shoulder, arm and hand work are also offered to the clients as a final phase of the foot massage session. Then the client sits on the stool where the feet had been resting on previously and the therapist is standing up.
