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.
This line is said to be the Life Energy Channel. This line runs along the 7 chakras and is considered to be the main pathway of Prana energy. This line is identical to Sushumna Nadi of the Indian ayurvedic system and similar to the Chinese Meridians Ren Mai and Du Mai. This line touches all that one is and all that one has the potential to be.
It is believed that by working on the Sen Sumana, one can activate the Kundalini energy which is stored in the base of the spine and travels from the root chakra up through the crown chakra. This causes a spiritual awakening and liberation.
The Sen Sumana is associated with the Wind 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.
