  • Although, in Thai reflexology it is not essential, but I recommend a bowl to put the feet in or a foot massage bath or simply just use some wet wipes
Description

What people are saying:

"I've been doing traditional reflexology for 19 years as a massage professional and wanted to compare Thai reflexology with what I'd learned. Mark's course is excellent, both for the professional practitioner and for a person interested in offering a session to friends and family. ." K.M. 

"What an AMAZING reflexology course, so full of information, I have been practicing Reflexology and Thai foot massage since 2012, and I still learned a lot from this course, I have already enrolled for some of Marks other courses" S.S.

"These reflexology courses are a breath of fresh air for a therapist!" N.M.

Learn Thai foot reflexology massage to treat your friends, family, partner or your massage clients. It is easy, simple and a joy to do. You will have them begging for more!

By the end of this course, you will have the skills to start up your own reflexology business and start earning money as a reflexologist. Wouldn't it be great to earn extra money or begin a new career? 

There is a very good reason that Thai foot reflexologists are employed in the best spas throughout the world-the Thai foot reflexology treatments are simply world class!


Mark studied traditional foot reflexology but then studied the Thai foot reflexology system and saw that not only was their system way more complete but it also made more sense as a form of treatment over traditional foot reflexology.

Now, for the first time on Udemy, you can learn this unique system of treating the feet and the legs which in turn is treating the whole body.


By taking this online Thai foot reflexology massage course you will :

  • increase your client base in your massage clinic or spa by offering something many other places do not offer. There are very few people offering Thai foot reflexology massage outside of Thailand. 

  • You will be able to use Thai foot reflexology on your friends, your partner or your family and have them begging for you to continue.They will absolutely love this form of foot massage!

  • You will not get tired doing Thai foot reflexology because they do not overuse their thumbs like it is taught in the traditional foot reflexology system so you will not get injured.

  • You will learn all about the energy lines and how to stimulate the specific reflexology points.

  • You will know how to correctly use your bodyweight and treat with their way of gently rocking back and forwards in time to your heartbeat.

  • you will learn advanced Thai reflexology massage techniques to treat muscular and joint pain.

In this Thai foot reflexology massage course, Mark guides you step by step through the movements, techniques, mobilizations, reflex points and energy lines. He explains why, when it comes to foot reflexology, the Thai foot reflexology system is second to none.

Thai foot reflexology massage has been performed in Thailand for thousands of years as a complete holistic treatment for body, mind and spirit. It is seen as a way to remain healthy and not simply an indulgence. Not only do they treat the reflex points on the feet but also they massage the energy lines(called sen)on the legs to balance and stimulate the movement of energy throughout the body.

If you are already treating people with traditional foot reflexology as a massage therapist or would just like to offer foot reflexology to your clients then I urge you to try this course. 

This will be a fabulous treatment that you can offer your clients and have them begging for more!
