Event Details

Nerve Touch also known as “Jap Sen” massage, meaning “to grasp” the sen, applies stronger pressure using knees, elbows, feet, and heels. This is a deeper approach with focus on increasing the range of motion for joints and relieving nerve pain. There is a blend of Thai herbs used to make medicinal herbal packs. Jap Sen utilizes the steamed herbal packs in a specialized way to soften tendons and muscles. You will learn how to make and use the herbal packs and integrate them into the techniques throughout the session for effective therapy for painful conditions.

There is a “hook and gentle rolling” over the ridge of muscles and nerves for deep release of tension and therapeutic benefit for conditions such as sciatica, back pain, hip pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, numbness, paralysis, frozen shoulder, knee injuries, ankle injuries and many other conditions.

Master Lek Chaiya learned this unique and very therapeutic style of Thai massage from her teacher, Mae Manee. She also learned Herbalism and Midwifery from her mother and furthered her knowledge with extensive Herbal Studies. With over 40 years of experience, she evolved the style and became a renowned Teacher. Janice was fortunate to meet her in 1997 and learned one to one with her for many years and then hosted and co-taught with her at Spirit Winds in California from 2002-2013. Together Janice and Lek produced Lek’s Advanced materials which are still only exclusively shared by Janice, honoring her as Lek’s foremost Western student.
