The origin of Toksen bodywork is credited to the farmers of Thailand. After a long day's work on the farm, the were in need of some pain relief. Not having access to all the stretching and compression techniques of Traditional Thai massage, the farmers evolved a more simple technique.
A wooden hammer is used to strike a mallet as it moves along the Sen (channels). Its rhythmic tapping and sound have not only a deep vibrational effect on the fascia of the body, but also induces deep relaxation with its steady staccato sound. The rhythm helps to open the channels and free any myofascial adhesions or other chronic pain disorders.
