Tok Sen workshop – traditional tendon massage

9. – 10. June 2018 in Helsinki.


Tok Sen is a traditional massage system from northern Thailand and ca. 3000 – 5000 years old. It’s name means in Thai „dissolving of energy lines“. Master Mantak Chia developed Tok Sen further and combined it with the knowledge of the massage system Chi Nei Tsang. In Tok Sen healing vibrations are given into the body by using a wooden hammer & pestle. By gently hitting the pestle the resulting vibrations are dissolving stagnated energies in the muscles, tendons or the meridians of our body. The vibrations are reaching also the deep inner muscles and connecting tissues and the benefits are recognizable very soon. It is used at almost every part of the body. Tok Sen is used also to treat the abdomen and the rib cage areas for balancing the emotions. In general, Tok Sen is a very effective detoxing treatment for the whole body.

Tok Sen on the bodily level is used for:

  • Stiffness, numbness and pain in the whole back, neck, shoulders, arms and legs.
  • Dissolving of hard knots in the muscles of the whole body.
  • Headaches and dizziness.
  • Numbness and pain in the extremities, especially the fingers.
  • Detoxing effect.

Tok Sen at the emotional level is used for:

  • Balancing of the emotions.
  • Dissolving of negative emotions like fear, anxiety, sadness, grief, anger, depression and excessive thinking.
  • Dissolving of actual or old traumas and panic attacks.

Unsupportive emotions can get stuck in the body forming hard knots or lumps. Strain, worries and ongoing stress collect and rarely dissolve on their own. Some emotional memories can be many years old or even originate from the childhood. The vibrations made with the wooden hammer & chisel dissolve the hard intertwinings. Negative emotions are transformed or guided out of the body.

In this workshop we will learn to dissolve this energy knots at the whole body. We will learn how to vibrate along the neck, shoulder, back, lumbar, arms, hands, legs and feet for releasing stiffness from our muscles and tendons. To support the Qi-flow in the spine and sacrum we will learn how to vibrate the whole spine and the sacrum. We will vibrate at the knees to release emotional ballast stored there. And we will work on the chest and abdomen, the main area of working with the emotions.

Tok Sen is a massage system on its own but can compliment very good other treatments.

The practice will be done hands-on with a partner. We will discuss about the Qi flow we intend to influence. There will be handouts with all necessary informations how to treat different symptoms. The hammer and chisel will be provided for every participant during the workshop. After the workshop it is possible to purchase a hand crafted Tok Sen set of one hammer and two different standard pestles.

I learned Tok Sen with Master Mantak Chia in 2013 and give Tok Sen treatments since then on a regular basis. In my treatment work I combine Tok Sen with classical Chinese acupuncture, cupping and phytembryotherapy.
