Hands, feet, neck
Sib Song Panna is an aristocratic family from the times of the kingdom of Lanna. Today this term is also used to define the variety of Thai massage, which is reserved for members of the royal family. Sib Song Panna Massage is a synthesis of several techniques: pressing with the body (not just hands, but also thumbs, feet, elbows, forearms and knees), reflexology, working with the energy channels, paying attention to blood circulation and the lymphatic system and the stretching and yoga. For people suffering from tension in the neck and shoulders, muscle pain, back pain, migraines, Sa Moon Prai massage is recommended, which combines two ancient healing concepts – energy massage and herbal medicine. Hot stamps filled with herbal mixture are called the “hot pressure”, acting in a manner similar to acupressure. The massage is performed along the sen energy lines, acupressure points and joints.
In the Burmese Shan massage one can notice the influence of Tibetan medicine, Ayurveda and Yunami Tibb – Persian medicine. Massage combines stretching the muscles and joints with the acupressure techniques (regular, balanced pressure) and Ayurvedic massage elements (long, stroking movements), and the blend of coconut oil and herbs is used for its performance.
