Thai Sib Sen - Sen Sumana

Sen Sumana is often considered the most important of the ten Thai Sen Energy Lines and it’s usually 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. Organs typically connected with this Sen Line are the heart, lungs, and stomach.

Sumana also has obvious similarities with the trajectory of the Indian Yogic Sushumna Nadi and with both energy pathways we find that the seven main Chakras lie along the channel.
