Reflexology is based on the principle that reflex points on the feet correspond with all body organs and systems. These points respond to pressure, stimulating the body's own healing process. The body re-establishes energy flows and balances itself, resulting in better health. A reflexology treatment begins with a relaxing herbal footbath. Your therapist will then treat your feet and lower legs using gentle yet firm pressure.

Thai massage is a practice based in Aryuvedic medicine and Hatha yoga. It integrates deep stretching, pressure and rhythmic motion to release stressed muscles and joints of the body. Thai massage also generates a deep state of relaxation and promotes a sense of well-being.
