CNT 3 – Tok Sen:
Tok Sen is a unique healing modality found only in the Lanna region of Thailand—the area around Chiang Mai in the north. The practice uses wooden tools that send mechanical and sound vibrations deep into the fascia, tendons, and muscles to clear blocked energy from the channels in the body. “Tok” means to “clear” or “take off,” while “Sen” denotes the energy lines. Tok Sen is thought to date back over five thousand years, developing in Thailand while acupuncture developed in China. Tok Sen helps to improve energy flow, relieve aching muscles, and maintain healthy tendons.
While Western anatomy maps the physical structures of tendon, muscle, and connective tissue, it is the Thai anatomy of Sen lines and the Chinese tendinomuscular meridians that relate these structures to specific signs of health and dysfunction. It is these lines and meridians that allow the skilled practitioner to turn a muscle massage into a medical treatment.
CNT 4 Kar Sai
Our sexual organs play a major role in our physical, emotional, and spiritual health – we need arousing, orgasmic energy for the healthy functioning of our beings. When the genitals suffer from blockages, the Jing Qi (sexual Qi) is not free to circulate through the body, which is then deprived of this powerful healing energy.
Karsai Nei Tsang is the practice of caring for our genitals and sexual organs, which we have neglected for far too long. The word karsai means “sedimentation in the veins” which is a common cause of blockage in the body. Many different types of blockages occur in all parts of the body; they can come from the aging process, emotional and physical traumas, toxins, heavy metals, air pollution, poor nutrition, pesticides in our food, polluted water or too much stress.
Karsai Nei Tsang focuses on the blockages in the genital area, especially those that take the form of sedimentation in the blood vessels. In order to have healthy, functioning genitals we need a rich supply of blood flow to and from them. When this blood flow becomes blocked with crystal-like sedimentation and fatty deposits, our sexual arousal response is greatly affected. With poor blood flow to the genital area, men will have difficulty getting and maintaining good erections, while women will have difficulty producing adequate sexual fluids, and getting the proper engorgement of the labia and clitoris. Karsai Nei Tsang releases the blockages and sedimentation that cause poor blood flow to these areas so that men and women can regain healthy sexual function.
Another important benefit of Karsai Nei Tsang is improved hormonal balance: when the circulatory flow in the genital area increases, hormones are more easily released. A healthy balance of hormones in turn stimulates sexual and brain functioning. When we have healthy hormonal function we are given some protection against many age-related problems such as memory loss, back pain, poor circulation, decreased libido, and problems associated with menopause.
The Karsai Nei Tsang practitioner uses a sensitive touch with deep, direct pressure and small circular massage movements to dissolve sedimentation in the circulatory system, release toxicity from the organs, and assist the student in letting go of any past emotional blockages held in this area.
Karsai Nei Tsang addresses common problems associated with our sexual organs, such as impotence, frequent and difficult urination, painful menstruation, painful intercourse, and low sexual libido. It is also quite effective in alleviating lower back pain, improving the body’s alignment, strengthening the pelvic floor muscles, and increasing general vitality.
