Feet, like the roots of a tree, support the entire weight of the body. The death of trees starts from the roots of trees, and the aging of human body begins with feet.

What is Foot & Leg Reflexology Treatment?


Foot & Leg Reflexology Treatment is a form of Ancient Chinese medicine that can be traced to 3000 BC. While there are some forms of reflexology that target the hands, ears and other parts of the body, foot reflexology does as the name suggests—it focuses on the feet. Reflexology divides the body’s organ zones, and each corresponds to the reflex areas on your feet. Stimulating these zones helps realign your Qi and spreads it throughout your body.


How it is used in Chinese Medicine at TCM Shanghai?


At TCM Shanghai, the treatment is divided into two parts. Part 1 involves a bath of the patient’s feet and lower legs. This bubble bath, which is infused with sea salt takes around 10-15 minutes. Afterwards, the patient receives a 30-minute foot and leg massage (part 2) in which our TCM practitioner applies special Tuina massage technologies.
