About this Course

Thai Foot Massage 

We all have clients that love having their feet massaged!

Thai Foot Massage consists of working on the feet and lower legs, and is performed with both the hands and with a Thai foot stick. The treatment is both relaxing and invigorating and has the aim of balancing the body and encouraging good health.

Thai Foot Massage is a relatively new concept in the UK, but has been practised for hundreds of years in various forms, both in Thailand and beyond. It is believed to have originated over 2000 years ago and has its roots in India, Korea, Japan and China.

The aim of this online course is to give you new add-on skills which will enable you to offer this lovely treatment to your clients or to blend in with your existing treatments.
