Four Seasons Chiang Mai introduces two new treatments

The spa at Four Seasons Resort Chiang Mai has introduced two new treatments inspired by the resort’s natural surroundings and Thai wellness traditions.

The Lanna Tok Sen Ritual is an ancient massage technique that traces its roots to the Lanna region of northern Thailand. The techniques of Tok Sen, which means “to tape the meridians”, have been used for generations to release energy blockage and stimulate circulation.

An instrument made of wood is lightly tapped along the body’s meridians to create soothing vibrations. The ritual combines this rhythmic tapping with a prai essential oil massage that uses effleurage and kneading techniques to leave the body relaxed and balanced.

The 90-minute teak wood massage in incorporates blended herbal oils and carves implements made of smooth teak wood to stimulate the body’s pressure points.

The carved pieces of teak are each designed to target a different area of the body. They are rolled over the muscles to heat deep-seated tension and pain. A choice of Thai herbal oils help leave the body soothed, rebalanced and free of tension.
