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.

Mr Grant Martens is a professional therapist. There setup was impressive. He explain everything so smoothly. Thanks Grant. Your effort actually helped.
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.
Massage combines both acupressure and stretching. Place is quite clean. Really good !
A lovely facility. The start light ceilings are my favourite!
I felt completely at ease in this space. It’s very welcoming and comfortable.
The senses when first walking through the door are triggered. The immersion in Thailand art and tropical warmth along with a great sound system and a stars far away will greet you as you enter the treatment room. What a wonderful experience.
Absolutely the best massage experience I’ve ever had.
