Jap Sen Style Thai Massage is a lineage passed down by women. It is a deeper therapeutic approach focusing on relieving painful conditions and the specialized use of steamed herbal packs. 

This will be a 5-Day Fundamentals Training with the opportunity for Advanced study in the future.  Janice Gagnon, founder of Spirit Winds School of Thai Massage has studied and co-taught with Lek Chaiya for over 20 years and lovingly carries on with her work and shares this lineage.

This stye of Thai Massage focuses on therapy for joints, nerves and relieving painful conditions.
Nerve Touch also known as “Jap Sen” massage, meaning to grasp the sen. It applies stronger pressure using knees, elbows, feet, heels and thumbs. Master Lek Chaiya has developed this unique and very therapeutic style of Thai massage. There is a rolling over or “gentle twanging” of the muscles and nerves for deep release of tension and therapeutic benefit for conditions such as sciatica,back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, numbness, paralysis,
frozen shoulder and many other conditions.
A special blend of Thai herbs, Lek Chaiya’s recipe, are used to make steamed herbal packs and are an integral part of this style.   You will learn how the medicinal properties, how to make them and their specialized use will be taught during this training.

A protocol treatment for Prenatal massage is also taught in the Advanced studies.

Masaje Tailandés Jap Sen

El estilo de masaje tailandés llamado jap sen se ha transmitido mayormente por un linaje de mujeres. El jap sen es una técnica terapéutica profunda que ayuda a aliviar las condiciones dolorosas usando técnicas especiales y paquetes de hier-bas al vapor.

Este curso sirve de introducción a esta técnica, para que los alumnos puedan es-tudiar mas en el futuro. La maestra Janice Gagnon, fundadora de Spirit Winds es-tudió y co-enseñó con Lek Chaiya durante más de 20 años, y continúa con amor su trabajo para compartir este linaje.


Jap Sen, que significa “agarrar las líneas sen” es un estilo único y distinto del estilo del Norte en el que se aplica presión utilizando rodillas, codos, pies, talones y pulgares. El jap sen es un estilo profundo con un enfoque en la terapia para las articulaciones, los nervios y el alivio de condiciones dolorosas. El jap sen aumenta el rango de movimiento, suaviza los tendones, alarga los músculos y realinea los huesos. Es altamente efectivo y llega al núcleo de lo que se necesita para la terapia.

Janice Gagnon, propietaria de la escuela Spirit Winds, estudió y enseñó de forma conjunta durante muchos años con la Maestra Lek Chaiya, el fundador de jap sen, y se dedica a continuar este linaje matriarcal.
