“Tok” means to tap/strike and “Sen” refers to the energy pathways (meridians in Chinese massage) within the body. Tok Sen is part of an ancient Thai Massage technique used to rhythmically strike or tap along the muscles and Sen lines using a hammer and stick made traditionally of tamarind wood. This tapping technique is an effective way of relaxing or stimulating the body through vibrations.

In this workshop you will learn how to complete a 60-minute Tok Sen massage flow. Please note that we are working superficially with light taps on muscles and energy lines relaxing and stimulating the nervous system. This technique can be complimentary to Thai Massage on the mat and Thai Oil. This massage technique helps with calming the nervous system by using rhythmic taps, unblocks energy, provides pain relief and improves circulation.
