What do I wear?
Both Thai Bodywork and Tok Sen is performed on a padded floor mat with the receiver fully clothed. Loose fitting or flexible clothing is recommended, such as sweatpants and comfortable shirt. Chi Nei Tsang is an oil massage practiced on the abdomen, on a mattress on the floor. A receiver is fully clothed with only abdominal area exposed for the work. Loose fitting or flexible clothing is recommended, such as sweatpants and comfortable shirt.
Can I eat before my session?
A receiver is recommended not to eat for 1 hours minimum before a Thai Bodywork or Tok Sen session and 3-4 hours minimum before Chi Nei Tsang.
I don’t feel so well. Should I come for a session anyway?
If you are feeling off or feeling like you are about to get sick, you should stay home and rest. With increased circulation and manipulation of the muscles, your body releases and/or pushes metabolic waste through your system faster than normal. When you are already dealing with symptoms in the early stage of the sickness, the bodywork can increase your symptoms and make you feel worse. Best idea is to stay home and rest.
Special Notes for people who booked for a Chi Nei Tsang session: Chi Nei Tsang isn’t recommended for the following: 1) Chronic diseases, such as cancer; 2) if you wear a pacemaker; 3) if you have your menstrual cycle, are pregnant, wear coil or a gastric ring; 4) if you have ever had a blood clot or taking anticoagulants.
