Cupping, Scraping, & Tok Sen

These methods are included in the cost of service.

They do have contraindications and possibly may not be used even if requested.

Fire cupping and Tok Sen are part of a treatment protocol, and are not the whole treatment.

Fire Cupping

Fire cupping is an ancient therapy and, when applied properly, can draw toxins from the bones and organs. Massage techniques for lifting muscles and separating layers of fascia are many, but fire cupping does it with a certain panache.

This method can be used for stubborn ailments, is particularly useful in reducing congestion during cold season, and is ideal for decreasing a specific fire toxin that can build up in the body. It is ideal for plantar fasciitis, bone trauma, bulky muscles like the gluteals and IT band, scars, and detoxing.

This method is ideally used at the end of a session, after the tissues have been warmed and softened and the channels engaged.

This method leaves markings, which have therapeutic value, diagnostic value and self care requirements.

Khoot

Otherwise known as "scraping", khoot is a repetitive brushing of oiled skin using a tool with a rounded, dull edge. This method is a quick release, capable of getting a lot of work done in a short amount of time. This tool is most effect on the skin, fascia, and muscle tissues.

Khoot's dynamic tool allows for precise work around joints and is ideal for the neck and upper back, forearms, hands and feet, to relieve soreness and tension.

This method leaves markings, which have therapeutic value, diagnostic value and self care requirements.

Tok Sen

This is a tapping method used to stimulate energy through the Sen.

Sen is the deepest layer of the body, totaling 72,000 pathways.

 

The entire purpose of a Thai massage is to treat the Sen in its larger forms, sticking mainly to circulation and alignment. Tok Sen transcends that and allows for subtler work in energy, which can have profound benefits.

This technique is used for greater and longer lasting effects from your treatment.

This method does not leave marks, and is used at the end of a session, after the tissues have been warmed and softened and the channels engaged.
