How is Tok Sen Massage performed?
Throughout a Tok Sen treatment your therapist may ask you to adopt four basic positions: supine (face up), prone (face down), side-lying, and seated. In these positions, and depending on the type of treatment you wish to receive, your therapist will work along your outer and inner legs, outer and inner arms, palms and soles, backs of the hands, tops of the feet, and the back of your body. Other than being asked to change into any of these positions, you will remain restfully inactive throughout the entire treatment.
Traditionally, Tok Sen takes place on a large and often comfortable floor mat. We offer same-quality treatments on our massage table or even seated, should you prefer this option. Small amounts of balms or herbal oils may be applied to the body to stimulate the region that is treated, and to ease the movement of the Tok Sen tools over your skin.
The beautiful wooden tools we will be using for your treatment were hand crafted for us in Thailand. They were officially blessed for use at a small temple ceremony in Chiang Mai, February 2020. To perform the broadest range of treatments properly we insisted on adding multiple chisels to this set, which allows us now to work effectively and comfortably on any sized body.
