Foot reflexology to cure ailments
The feet represent the state of health of the human body according to Thai culture. The human body is symbolized on the soles of the feet, therefore, the points of interest of the body are spread along them, establishing a mapping of the organism and its physical state.

Therapists study the resistance, quality and hardness of these points, evaluating their condition and their treatment, being special in each case. This type of massage stimulates the self-healing system through pressure, making deep and prolonged movements.

Commonly regarded as the link between the entire body, the foot is particularly sensitive. Each of its reflex zones corresponds to strategic points of parts of the anatomy, being made up of almost 8000 nerve endings, which need to be professionally manipulated. Therefore, from the heel to the tip of each toe, different localized areas are treated with very special care.
The organs on the left side of the body are shown on the left foot and those on the right side are shown on the right foot. Each key point represents an organ of the human body. From the sinuses to the sciatic nerve, a number of 39 key points are present in the feet and correspond to important parts of the body.
