Thai Sib Sen – Sen Pingkhala

Sen Pingkhala is the counterpart of Sen Ittha and one of the ten Thai Sib Sen or Sen Energy lines as addressed in Thai Traditional Massage and Thai Yoga (Reusi Datton).

Pingkhala is associated with the Fire Element. Typically, this energy line is related to curing or alleviating headaches, sinusitis, back and neck pains, and sciatic nerve pains. Associated organs are the nose, gallbladder and liver, kidneys and urinary tract system.
