Tok-Sen is an ancient Lanna-style massage technique (from Northern Thailand) that involves the use of a special wooden hammer to relax muscles in a rhythmically tapping motion. It could be use by its own or as a complement of other massage modalities
Tok means to hit and Sen refers to the energy pathways within the body. This therapy uses a mallet and a wedge made of wood to gently tap along the energy meridians in the body. It produces penetrating vibrations that resonate through the deep layers of tissue and bones. These vibrations relax stiff bodies and provide pain relief. It’s a rhythmic massage that is administered with a combination of three consecutive taps and continuous movement along the sen lines to disperse energy
