thumb across muscle fiber making effect similar to playing strings of guitar... causing parts of the limbs to
twich involuntarily. As it might be rather strong experience for the receiver during the treatment, but
followed by very relaxing, energizing and therapeutic effect afterwards. Very soothing, relaxing hot herbal
compress is usually being applied at the end of the treatment.
According to Mama Lek Chaiya:
Following the meridian lines,
we 'arrange' the lines, using pressing,
rotating, and squeezing techniques
on the lines and points.
This energizes, invigorates and restores
balance to the entire system,
as well as correcting misalignments,
relieving pain and stress in specific areas.
