Sen Sumana is usually considered the primordial and most important of the ten Thai Sen Energy Lines, and it’s often the starting point of enumerating the Sip Sen (Sib Sen or Sen Sip).
Generally, this Sen Line is associated with the Wind Element and respiratory function, but also with abdominal and digestive issues. Typically, the organs that are connected with this Sen Line are the heart, lungs, intestines, and stomach.
Nevertheless, there are also associations with the limbs (arms and legs) through the Sen Extension Lines and Sen Branch Lines.
Sen Sumana also has obvious similarities with the trajectory of the Indian Yogic Sushumna Nadi. In both the Thai and Indian energy pathway system we find that the seven main Chakras lie along this channel.
Depending on the lineage and theoretical conception, some healers and therapist also consider Sumana (or Sushumna) the Energy Line to which all other Energy Lines connect and receive there Prana (called Lom Pran in Thailand) Vital Life Energy from.
The Sen Sumana main line starts just above the navel (near the solar plexus region), travels up following the mid-line of the body (chest area) along the spinal column, runs up the throat, and ends at the tip of the tongue.
Sen Sumana addresses asthma, bronchitis, respiratory problems, chest pain, heart disease, spasm of the diaphragm, hiatal hernia, nausea, cold, cough, hunger pains, throat problems, digestive problems, abdominal pains, upper body paralysis, mania, daydreaming.
