Although it is not illegal to show the soles of your feet in Thailand, it is seen as extremely rude, and a taboo, to do so at any time. Thai people consider the head to be the most sacred part of the body, and the feet to be the lowest and the filthiest.
Show the soles of your feet to anyone
Raise your feet higher than someone's head
Use your feet to point to something
Step over a person
Put your feet on a desk or chair
Step on a threshold of a home or temple
Thai people traditionally sit on the floor or on cushions on the floor to eat, relax and entertain, and you must always remove your shoes before entering these spaces. In some cases, such as when you go for a massage, you or someone else will wash your feet before entering this space. In addition to keeping things more sanitary and feeling good, traditional belief is that washing your feet before entering leaves bad luck at the door.
Sirius Health intends to be true to traditional Thai massage, so all services at Sirius Health will begin with a foot washing.

I thoroughly enjoyed my first session of Thai Massage at Sirius Health. Grant was very professional and put me at ease immediately. I expected to be sore the next day but I was pleasantly surprised I wasn't. My body felted stretched out. Great feeling! Highly recommend it!
It was so relaxing - not like a traditional massage where you come in, lay down, and then have to leave. It was a lengthier time, incorporated massage and tandem stretching, had aromatherapy, and was warm and quiet. I felt so good after, and I felt even better the next day. It was amazing. I would highly highly recommend everyone tries this!
Offers wonderful and authentic Thai massages. The space is beautiful, clean and comfortable. The treatment is very unique compared to a typical massage but so effective and bonus points for a foot scrub and tea. This massage was better then any of the Thai massages I had in Thailand. Thanks Grant for bringing this space to saskatoon!
What an amazing experience! Looking forward to coming back already!

I have chronic pain with my calves. Causing poor and restless sleeps. Meeting Grant at Sirius Health was a welcoming session and much needed treatment. Felt amazing after the treatment and even more flexible in my movement.
