Thai Sib Sen – Sen Kalathari

Sen Kalathari, also called the emotional and psychic line, or psychological and spiritual Sen, is one of the ten Thai Sib Sen or Sen Energy lines worked on in Traditional Thai Massage and Thai Yoga Reusi Datton.

It’s also the energy line strongly connected to “movement of the limbs.” Sen Kalathari is associated with the Fire and Wind Elements. As for the organs, Sen Kalathari typically relates to the heart, although many abdominal organs are also associated with this Sen Line.

Thai Sib Sen – Sen Kalathari


Sen Kalathari starts at the navel and divides into four branches, two on the right, two on the left, and runs on both the front and backside of the body.

Runs from the navel up to the chest and shoulders down the middle lines of the arms (second inside line) to the wrists and from there to the tips of all the fingers on both the left and right side of the body.

Furthermore, runs from the navel down the mid-line of the inside of the legs (second inside line) going under the feet and from there to all the toes on both the left and right side of the body.

See the image above for the trajectory on the backside of the body, running over outside lines number two of arms and legs (middle lines) and on top of the feet to all the toes, and over lines number two on the back (on both side of the spinal column on the muscle, not in the groove, which would be either Sen Pingkhala or Sen Ittha).
