Thai Barefoot or Walking Massage Treatments and Training in Thailand

More specifically in the Northern part of Thailand, in the Chiang Mai Lanna region and among certain Hill Tribes, so-called Walking Massage or Thai Barefoot Massage is a form of Thai Massage application. Moreover, some hill tribe healers only use Barefoot Massage techniques.

Treatments where the masseur uses the feet have a more “earthy” quality than the ones done with the hands, or other parts of the body. In general, more pressure can be applied also. Sometimes practitioners use a stick, rod or rope to keep their balance while “walking” over the patient.

In itself, Thai Massage done with the feet is not something extraordinary — Thai Massage is typically given by a practitioner who uses all parts of his or her body. In that sense, Thai Barefoot Massage techniques are applied as part of a “normal” Thai Massage session if the therapist thinks they’re better or necessary for the receiver.

Today, we see that some Thai Massage schools offer complete Thai Barefoot Massage training courses that learn students to do a full body Thai Massage solely using the feet.

Nevertheless, it’s very rare to find Thai (or other) massage salons, parlors or spas that offer complete Barefoot Massage treatment sessions. At best there are therapists that integrate foot work into the massage session.

Notable teachers and therapists in Thailand who occupy themselves explicitly with this form of massage are Ms. Homprang Chaleekanha and Ms. Sirichan.
