Lanna Therapies

The Kindom of Lanna is a place in the north of Thailand where ancient healing practices are still alive.

Gabriel has been trained and qualified by Doctor Anoop in the following healing arts:


Yam Khang - Fire Therapy (not performed at the clinic). 


It is an ancient Lanna-style Thai healing practice in which a practitioner uses heat, plai water, sesame oil, and their feet to massage their client.
The Thai word Yam means to step or walk, and the word Khang means plough. The symbolism of a Yam Khang is that the service will turn over the bad things in a person’s life just as a plough turns over the soil. 
The uniqueness of Yam Khang comes from the use of oil and fire. Practitioners generally have two bowls of liquid to dip their feet in during a Yam Khang treatment. The first is a bowl of plai water. Practitioners scrape raw plai with stones into a water bowl and filter out everything except the infused water. The second bowl combines sesame oil and Thai whiskey (or Vodka) and this liquid provides the visual grandeur of a Yam Khang treatment.

Chead Heak
Similar to Gua Sha, a traditional Chinese medicine technique that involves scraping the skin with a smooth-edged instrument to stimulate blood flow and promote healing.
