Japanese Foot Massage

Japanese Foot Massage comes from the ‘Anma’ massage tradition of Japan and
was used to provide relief to weary travellers arriving in inns as well as being a
folk-treatment for the home. It is a very soothing and restorative treatment
which includes a range of techniques such as pummelling, vibrating, kneading,
flicking, palming and thumbing.

The feet are washed and then the first part of the massage is carried out on dry
skin, with the second part including the application of cream and another

range of techniques; acupoints are also included. This is a set/one-off ‘folk
massage’ form which does not include work on specific parts of the body as is
the case with reflexology.
