Thai foot massage certificate (FHT accredited short course)
Looking for something unique to offer your clients? Come and learn an authentic Thai Foot Massage routine. You’ll learn how to apply massage and stretches, use the stick, and wrap the foot with a towel in the Thai traditional style. After practice, the routine can be performed in an hour-long appointment, or blended into your massage or reflexology session.
You will also learn about the history and context of the massage, along with guidelines on contraindications and precautions. Assessment is ongoing throughout the course and, if you are a qualified therapist to level 3, you will be issued with a certificate at the end of the two-day training, which qualifies you to offer this skill at professional level.
This is an accredited short course with the Federation of Holistic Therapists (FHT CPD). Suitable for beginners and qualified therapists alike.
We have introduced an online option as well as in-person for all our trainings. So wherever you are, all are welcome to join this two-day course!
No previous qualification is required. However, if you intend to practise professionally in the UK and require certification, you should have a recognised level 3 qualification in massage or reflexology, including Anatomy and Physiology.
Cost includes the rosewood stick for you to keep, a small bottle of massage oil/wax and a workbook. Class numbers are limited to ensure individual attention. 50% discount if you have done the course before and wish to repeat for revision purposes.

About Thai foot massage
This therapy involves stretching and massage of the feet and lower legs, and a rosewood stick is used to stimulate reflex points on the soles of the feet. It is a very popular treatment for balancing the energy and stimulating the organs, and is pleasantly restorative.
Thai foot massage has been practised in Thailand for 2,000 years and has a rich history. Some techniques used originated in India, Japan, China, and Indonesia, which made their way along the silk roads and became integrated with the traditions of Thai medicine. In Thailand today, it is practised by Buddhist monks in the sacred environment of the Temple, and also can be enjoyed in clinics or by the roadside at the market. It is a simple yet rewarding treatment that can be learned in one day.
