The Sen Lines in Thai Massage are the pathways for energy, life force, and “Prana” in the body. The Sen Lines closely resemble the Chinese Meridians and Indian Prana Nadi Lines. Working with the Sen Lines in a Thai Massage opens energy flow and removes blockages.
These two Sen Lines represent the balancing of the masculine and feminine energies. The Ittha, or left channel, represents the feminine/lunar/emotions/feelings/yin side. The Pingkala, or right channel, represents the masculine/yang/thought/analysis side. Bringing these two energies into balance is paramount for whole body health and for activating your personal MerKaBa. May of the images representing these two lines show the energies intertwining like a DNA strand as they circle the spine in rising kundalini energy. These energies also must be balanced in order to activate the Sen Sumana (all that you have the potential to become).
Ittha is related to the Earth element. Pingkhala is related to the Fire element.
Activate this line via acupressure of either the finger tip, thumb, or knuckle. Follow the line starting from the big toe and working your way up the line.

- Headache, colds, cough, sore throat, chills, fever, nasal problems, dizziness
- Trapezius pain, neck and shoulders
- Internal organs
- Intestines & Urinary Tract
- Ittha: Spleen
- Pingkala: Liver & Gallbladder
