Toksen is an ancient healing art that traces back its history to 3000 BCE. It is based on the underlying philosophy that illnesses are caused in the body due to blocked energy lines and vibration can be used to clear those blockages. Toksen is an art that is helpful in breaking down the energy blockages and thus enhancing the free flow of energy. Toksen restores the overall well-being of the body and mind.

What is Toksen?

The word Token is a combination of two words – ‘Tok’ meaning sacred sound that is produced by tapping a wooden wedge with a mallet and ‘Sen’ meaning the energy lines of the body. The steady rhythmic tapping sound induces vibrations that breaks down the energy blockages. The origin of the Toksen method of healing has its roots in how farmers who were exhausted after a hard day’s work used to revive each other by gently tapping a wooden wedge using a wooden mallet along the energy lines (Sen). The wood was originally derived from the remains of a lightning struck tree that was later blessed by Buddhist monks. This enabled the wood to retain the power of lightning and help revitalise the human body through Toksen. 

Today, the official Toksen wedges and mallets are made from tamarind wood, rosewood and teak, which have been found to be efficacious for the practice of Toksen. Toksen is often used in conjunction with a deep knowledge of energy lines of the body and acupoints. This makes the treatment more effective, thus stimulating free flow of Sen. When energy flows freely it aids in faster recovery and better well-being.

What are the benefits of Toksen?

Toksen is used to open up blocked energy lines by the tapping action. It works along the energy lines of the body. It promotes a holistic healing of the body and mind by removing energy blockages. The tapping action in Toksen triggers vibrations at the muscles and nerve endings. This vibration permeates the entire body of the receiver. The vibrations cause resonance, that is similar to the sound of a bell, which in turn unblocks the stifled energy lines and eases the flow along the Sen. It is the resonance that relieves pain and revitalises the body. 

A few benefits of Toksen therapy are – 

  • Toksen provides relief from aches and pains by relaxing the muscles and joints. 
  • It improves blood circulation leading to better recovery. 
  • It boosts the body’s immunity.
