What is "Tok Sen" Massage?

According to legend, this massage more than 2500 years old. Tok Sen Massage – this ancient healing procedure is based on the therapeutic effects of Thai massage with tapping of the whole body with special hammer and a stick. Tok Sen can be called “Thai massage for gourmets. Sen translates as: Tok – the sound made by hitting a wooden object with another wooden object and Sen – energy lines that pass through the human body. The hammer and the wand are made of tamarind tree, struck and charged by lightning, and always blessed in the monastery. Our bodies have numerous energy channels in which the “chi” flows. Traditional Thai and Chinese medicine maintains that a person is healthy only when “chi” flows without obstruction. In addition to the stagnation in the energy meridians, the main places of blocking the passage of energy in the body are the bunches (especially along the spine), where it is difficult being worked by conventional massage techniques. Tok Sen allows the master to reach the energy blocks with this painless technique by tapping wooden hammers and vibratory waves penetrate deep into the tissue. Originated and developed the practice at the ancient Kingdom of Lana, this is now the north of Thailand (Chiang Mai). Therefore, you will not find this massage in the tourist areas of Thailand and especially not in Europe. Tok Sen – is a unique, one of a kind massage and it’s therapeutic effect is recognized as the most effective massage in the world. This technique allows you to remove the blockage in the energy channels, activate the acupressure points and promote the normal flow of energy in the body, relax the clenched muscles of the body, mainly the ones that are impossible to reach with other massage techniques. Tok Sen massage has a resistant and proven therapeutic effect in diseases of the musculoskeletal system and some internal organs. Great stretch for the tendons and ligaments, “sets” them in place.

    What is Thai Massage Therapy?

    Thai massage looks like a cross between acupressure, yoga, and Zen shiatsu and is inspired by Buddhist teachings. The actual massage consists of slow, rhythmic compressions and stretches along the body’s energy lines, also called sen in Thai. Over 70,000 sen are said to exist within the body which power all physical, mental and emotional processes. If there is an energy imbalance, the body’s harmony is disrupted, causing pain and disease. Massaging along these key energy lines can break energy blockage, stimulate the circulation and restore general well-being. Thai massage concentrates on applying pressure along 10 of the most important sen. In doing this, it incorporates acupressure work with a series of assisted yoga-like stretches, in which the practitioner uses his or her hands, arms, legs, and feet to give the massage. The emphasis is on the practitioner using his or her body weight as much as possible while ensuring that the receiver remains relaxed throughout the entire treatment. A Thai massage is typically performed on a floor mat enabling practitioners to use their body weight and to incorporate the many movements that would not be possible with a massage table. Normally, the client remains fully clothed, and lubricant for the skin is rarely used. A Thai massage usually lasts one to two hours, but may be three hours or more if needed.
      Thai massage includes the following four basic positions:
    • from the front with the client lying supine
    • from the side with the client alternately lying on either side
    • from the back with the client lying prone
    • in a sitting position

    History of Thai Massage Therapy

    Thai massage is believed to have been developed by Jivaka Kumar Bhaccha, physician to Buddha, more than 2,500 years ago in India. It made its way to Thailand, where the Ayurvedic techniques and principles gradually became influenced by traditional Chinese medicine. For centuries, Thai massage was performed by monks as one component of Thai medicine. While the recorded history of Thai massage was lost during the war with Burmese in 1767, the surviving records are now inscribed in stone and can be found within the temple of Pra Chetuphon in Bangkok, known as Wat Po, the temple of the reclining Buddha. Its spiritual aspect also remains as teachers of the therapy begin classes with the practice of waikru, a series of prayers and recitations dedicated to Shivago Komarpaj, the father of Thai massage and the God of Healing, and teachers of the tradition through the centuries.
