Affecting all the body's sen lines (similar to Chinese meridians) Thai Reflexology produces a deep feeling of relaxation, balance, and well-being. Some enjoy Thai Reflexology's convenience, because it is done with the client fully clothed. Bring or wear comfortable pants that can be easily rolled up for access above the knee.
