- Welcome To Sparsh Foot Spa
“Seeing is believing” and as a NGO working on creating awareness on disabilities and providing equal opportunities for PWDs, we run SPARSH, a self sustaining Foot Reflexology Spa managed by trained Blind therapists.
For hundreds of years, blind people have been trained to massage, making use of their “seeing hands” which may be, if not the same , perhaps, more capable than those of sighted people.
Our Sparsh Foot Spa initiative has come a long way in altering perceptions and attitudes of the community towards Blind persons. The Sparsh Foot Spa stalls at Malls, Marathons, Melas, Corporate offices and Celebratory events provides us a unique opportunity:
- Of igniting the curiosity of visitors at the event who chance upon our therapists at work.
- Of changing attitudes of those who actually take a session and realize the expertise/skill of our therapists.
- Of clients paying a fee for a service rendered which is contradictory to the age old convention of giving alms to blind persons.
In a region where state financial support for people with disabilities is very rare, massage gives blind people a highly valued and specialized role in society, and provides them with the means to make a living. Blind people regard becoming a masseur as a step forward, offering a chance of greater independence”.
