Tok Sen Massage Course (IGCT, CMA Accredited)

This Tok Sen Massage course is open to any individuals who have prior training in RQF Body Massage with A&P (Level 3) or higher.

It is open to practising Massage Therapists, Thai Massage Therapists as well as Physiotherapists, Osteopaths, Chiropractors and Sports Science practitioners.

About this Tok Sen Course ...

This Tok Sen course gives you a thorough practical and theoretical grounding in Traditional Tok Sen Massage. It’s an ancient art which originated in Chiang Mai, Northern Thailand where a wooden hammer (the kon) and two wooden “chisels” (lims) are used to stimulate acupressure points on the body’s energy lines - in many ways it’s the original massage gun.

It’s highly effective in:

  • Alleviating aches and pains
  • Relaxing stiff muscles
  • Stimulating the circulatory system
  • Clearing energy blockages
  • Reducing stress and anxiety

The name comes from the sound the tapping makes - ‘Tok’, and the word for energy lines - ‘Sen’, thus Tok Sen translates as tapping the energy lines.

Dynamic stretches are also included to help prepare the body for treatment and to relax it afterwards. Tok Sen is an element of Thai Massage which was originally developed in India during the time of the Buddha and is a part of traditional Thai medicine.

The main part of the course is practical hands-on work but we will also cover the history and theory of Tox Sen as well. You will learn a complete traditional routine that can be practiced on its own or incorporated into other modalities.

What will I learn on this Tok Sen Course ...

  • The theory and history of Tok-Sen and Thai Massage
  • Sen Line theory
  • A full 1 hour Tok-Sen routine
  • Self care tips
