ABOUT THAI JOP SEN MASSAGE
Thai massage is a traditional medicine with a 2500 year history influenced by both traditional Chinese medicine and Ayurveda. Its effects and benefits have been seen by university hospitals in Thailand and is a widely accepted modality today.
The particular technique used in our treatments is called Jop Sen and known to have the highest therapeutic effects in Thai massage. The slow pressure applied at the rhythm of breathing promotes blood flow and effectively releases tightness. Jop Sen’s deep pressure at a pinpoint could have an effect on the internal organs’ functions as well as mood swings through the autonomic nervous system.
