Thai Massage Sib Sen Energy Lines Trajectories and Purpose - An Overview
The theoretical, and as for that—also the practical foundation of Thai Traditional Massage, is based on “working the 10 Sen Energy Lines,” the so-called Thai Sib Sen.

These (invisible) canals and pathways run through our bodies and distribute vital life-energy, called Prana, Wind, Lom, Chi, or Universal Energy. By unblocking or opening these channels or meridians and by “balancing” the flow of energy, we restore the proper functioning of our body and mind thereby alleviating or curing discomforts and pains.

With Thai Massage we learn their trajectories, and we learn how to manipulate and unblock them—with pressure, rocking, with stretches, and with Yoga poses.

Traditional Thai Massage recognizes ten main energy lines, although these ten lines/meridians by themselves also branch into many sub-lines. In this article we address (and give an overview) of the trajectories of the ten principal Thai Sen Lines and their respective therapeutic indications, roles and purpose in our bodies.

We need to add that there are some disparities, depending on the Thai Massage lineage, about the exact routes these Sen lines take in our bodies. We, in this article, have primarily followed the outcome of research Asokananda (Harald Brust) and Kam Thye Chow did.

Rest to say that in Thailand Sen Lawusang is also called Sen Junthapusunk and Sen Ulangka is also called Sen Ruchum.
