Service Description

Tok Sen means "take off energy lines" in Thai language. It is an ancient Northern Thai practice. It is a rhythmic method of tapping using a special wooden hammer and wedge combined with Thai acu-points that creates a healing vibration working deeply through the fascia and muscles in the body. Treatment and healing with Tok Sen, like many older and indigenous techniques, incorporate all three levels of the physical, energetic and spiritual being. A technique to clear blocked energy. It uses mechanical and sound vibration to deeply unwind and release tension on shoulders, neck, and back leaving muscles feeling much softer.  The practice of Tok Sen is very old and dates back to a time before the Thai, Sukhothai, or even the Lanna Kingdom. We can assume this method is indigenous or semi-indigenous to these areas. Tok Sen is a combination of two words, "Tok" means the sacred sound produced by tapping the wooden wedge with the mallet and "Sen" means the energy lines of the body in the Thai medical methodology.  This method is known and practiced through Northern Thailand. Tok Sen can also be find in Burma and Laos as a healing tool in treatment. Until recently, this unique healing modality was found only in the Chang Mai area of Northern Thailand (Lanna). Tok Sen is thought to date back over 5000 years, and developed in Lanna while acupuncture developed in China. It is an energetic healing modality, and is still practiced in the country areas, where farmers receive Tok Sen from family members after working in the fields all day. The tradition is only taught orally. We are pleased to this treatment with a combination of Thai massage.
