Traditional Thai bodywork modalities
These are some of the massage techniques used and mixed at the Sirichan Clinic of Chiang Mai, in order to adapt to each one's body, needs, sensitivity and healing process.
Aroma Oil Therapy
Therapeutic oil massage aims at restoring the muscles capacities to relax, bringing oxygen, improve lymph flow, and allow for further treatment.
Tok Sen is a unique Lanna therapy given by using a wooden hammer and stick. It sends a rhythmical vibration in the body that allows the targeted area to balance, open and get re-structured. This technique is highly effective on big or overly tense bodies. In ancient times, Tok Sen was applied on farmers coming back from the field for a quick release of their muscular tensions. Today Tok Sen is the perfect therapy for people working hard... at their desk!
Traditional Thai Massage
This is the worldwide known therapy that can release blockages, improve motion range and induce blood and nutrients flow in the body.
At the Sirichan Clinic, we mix the Northern and the Southern style of Thai massage. We include Jap Sen (working on tendons), acupressure, palm press, stretchings, abdominal massage, yoga-like postures and more.
We have developed and used all the therapeutic techniques that traditional Thai massage has to offer.
Thai Hot Herbals
Herbal therapy consists in diffusing in the body what Nature has the best to offer to help us healing. At the Sirichan Clinic, we apply hot compresses like generally done in a spa, but we also use other ancient techniques which haven’t been marketed worldwide.
The foot massage therapy aims at restoring the feet as well as muscles and organs that are interconnected. The result is a subtle and deep releasing effect on nerves and organs, as well as renewed energy.
Body Balancing & Spinal Setting
A softer form of chiropractic cleverly combined with Thai massage techniques. Performed on a massage table or on the floor, Body Balancing & Spinal Setting is the subtle art of balancing the whole body and its energies. It is a mostly effective treatment to re-load your energy and improve the structural repositioning of the body parts.
Thai Cupping Therapy
Thai Cupping Therapy draws wind, blood, mucous and toxins which lie deep in the body up to the surface to allow the body to process and expel them.
Thai Cupping is remarkably effective for:
- Reducing scar tissue.
- Releasing tight fascia.
- Releasing heat.
- Dispersing stagnation.
- Releasing adhesions.
- Dispersing accumulated waste
- Problems caused by toxic blood
