What is the significance of foot washing?

In Thailand, foot washing not only helps to keep things more sanitary and feeling good, but traditional belief is that washing your feet before entering leaves bad luck at the door.

Tradition and Health

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. For this reason, Thai people consider it rude to:
  • 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.
