Lanna Exotic, Tok-Sen
Tok Sen massage is thought to date back over 3,000 years and is still practiced in Thai villages in the Chiang Mai area of Northern Thailand (Lanna). This traditional folk massage is used after a long day’s work in the fields. It utilized wooden tools to release blockages and tension in the body. Tok Sen means "Awaking Body’s Energy Lines" in Thai, in other words, it is a technique to create freedom for energy flow. The wooden sticks are tapped rhythmically to create pressure and sound vibrations that go deeply within the pressure points of the shoulder and lower back. They focus on the Meriden lines and layers of muscles. After the energy lines are awakened, a fragrant Aromatherapy Oil Massage completes the therapy. * (Chiang Mai)
