Thai Tok Sen is a Thai Healing art especially practiced and taught in and around Chiang Mai (Northern Thailand). Tok Sen Therapy, also known as “Thai Hammer Massage” uses a little wooden hammer and a wedge (usually made of wood, bone or ivory) to tap along the Ten Sen Sip Energy Lines of the body.
The rhythmical tapping and sound vibrations work through the tissue and muscles down to the tendons and attachments with the bones. Tok Sen is used to clear blocked (Life) energy, improve blood circulation and alleviate muscle and nerve tensions, problems and pains.
