Tibetan Head, Hand and Foot Massage

Tibetan Head, Hand and Foot Massage is based on Tibetan Ayurvedic principles and dates back over 5,000 years to the ancient Bon religion which pre-dates Buddhism. It is similar to Indian Ayurveda and Tibetans believe that individuals are composed of five elements – earth, wind, fire, ether and air and three humors (similar to the Indian doshas – vata, pitta and kapha) which are wind, bile and phlegm. Tibetans also believe the body is composed of five winds which are linked to five chakras. They claim wind is life sustaining and when the crown chakra is out of balance it has a knock-on effect on the other four causing imbalance in the body. Therefore the aim is to restore equilibrium and prevent ill health by slowing down the flow of wind.

The ancient Tiebetian Foot Massage is widely known for its deep relaxation techniques, it is an alternative therapy that enhances the distinctive healing mechanisms of the body. It involves pressure to specific reflex points on the feet using hands, fingers, pointed wooden sticks or thumb techniques. Reflexology is based on the premise that internal organs, bones, and body systems can be positively influenced from properly applying pressure to the points on the feet.
