Sen Thawari main line starts two thumbs distance below the navel, runs right down the abdominal area and groin to the first inside line of the right leg (thigh), then further down to the knee and following the first inside line of the lower leg passing the ankle and going under the foot.

There the line again ascends taking the first outside line of the right leg up to the hip, crosses the hip to go back to the right front side of the body to the right nipple and finally following the throat and crossing the jaw to end at the right eye.

Its only extension line (color blue in the picture) travels over the right side of the back (line three of the back) to cross over the head, while also ending at the right eye.

Thawari has three branch lines (yellow in the picture).

  • Its first branch at the front of the body departs from the main line, runs over the clavicle, covers part of the right shoulder and goes down the right arm (first inside line) to end at the tip of the right thumb.
  • The second branch at the back of the body departs from the extension line descending from the neck, and runs over the outside of the right arm (first outside line), and ends at the tip of the right thumb.
  • The third branch departs from the main line at the level of the hip and runs over the midline of the front of the right thigh, and ends near the right knee. In Thai Massage, this latter line is also called Line 0 (zero) of the front-thigh.

Sen Thawari is the counterpart of Sen Sahatsarangsi which takes the same course as Sen Thawari, but then on the left side of the body.
