“When the body gets working appropriately, the forcé of gravity can flow through, then spontaneously, the body heals itself”  Ida Rolf

Traditional Thai massage & Tok Sen Therapy

Tok Sen is an ancient rhythmic healing art practiced in Northern Thailand. “Tok” is used to describe the sound from made by a wooden hammer on the skin while “Sen” refers to the energy lines of the body.

Therefore, this form of massage consists in tapping the energy lines of the body with a wooden mallet and a peg, made from a tamarind tree, sending resonating healing vibrations throughout the body. It works like ultrasounds (used in physiotherapy) for the muscles and fascias and goes deep into them. While there may be slight discomfort at certain times, it is not painful and it helps to relax the muscles on a deeper level.

Thai Herbal Balm may also be used on the skin to help heat the muscles.
