September 22-26, 2019
9:00am – 5:00pm

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. Janice picked Chelsie Wilson out of more than 2000 students to be a Spirit Winds Certified Instructor and to continue to share the knowledge from this matriarchal lineage.

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. Lek made a specific blend of herbs for the medicinal herbal packs.  Jap Sen utilizes the steamed herbal packs in a specialized way to soften tendons and integrates 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.
