Deafness, ear infections, middle and inner ear problems, coughing, facial paralysis, toothache and sore throat.
Starts at the Navel runs to the nipple up the Posterior Scalene to the front of the ear and back along the hairline behind the ear to finish under the ear lobes.
Points of the head 3 & 4. Closing the ear flaps in ear massage.
Connected to the sense of sight and is hence used for redness/swelling of the eyes. Facial paralysis, toothache, fever, chest pain, manic depressive/psychosis, gastrointestinal diseases, urogenital diseases, arthritis of the knee, paralysis of legs, knee pain. Sen Thawari is used in for Jaundice and appendicitis.
Major: Starts at the Navel cuts down to the medial edge of the Rectus Femoris. Down the knee to between the tibia and the Flexor Digitorum Longus. Goes to the top of the foot four finger from the Superior Extensor Retinaculum and cuts back up the leg along the Anterior Tibialis. Once it crosses the knee, it follows the lateral edge of the Rectus Femoris to the tip of the ASIS. Here it cuts back to the Sciatic notch in Gluteus area. At the Sciatic Point, it switches back to the front of the body under the Serratus Anterior to the nipples. From the nipples, it heads up behind the Posterior Scalene to the middle of the eye.
Minor: Starts at the Sciatic notch and goes up the posterior side of the Transversus Abdominis muscle up the middle of the scapula to the Levator Scapulae and then to the top of the head and turns back to the face along the hairline of the ear and ends at the tip of the eyebrows.

Superficial Front Line on the legs
Connected to the process of respiration. The SEN is also applied in the case of headaches (moon channel in the evening hours and sun channel during the day). Also, since it runs through the Trapezius and Infraspinatus muscles, it has strong indication with shoulder and neck pain. Its is also useful for mucus build-ups in the nose, coughs and colds, chills and fevers. Around the Abdominal area, it runs over trigger points of the Rectus Abdominis and, therefore, helps with relieving a complete set of digestive issues that occur due to this.
The line starts at the belly button travels across the Inguinal crease above the Femoral artery and then goes between the intermuscular septum of the Vastus Medius and Rectus Femoris. It crosses the knee but then climbs back along the Biceps Femoris and across the Glut Maximus passing over the Sciatic Notch.
Further, it climbs to Posterior Superior Iliac Spine and up the Longissimus Thoracis to reach the neck. It then runs along the Spinalis Capitis muscle crosses the fascia of the Scalp to arrive at the eyebrows.
Originates at the Navel and moves up in a straight line across the sternum to the nostrils.
Minor 2: Starts from Minor Line 1 at the level of the 4th Rib to run across to the Armpit along the inner side of the arm to reach the Ulnar side of the palm.
Minor 3: Starts in at Line 2 next to C7 cuts along the posterior edge of Posterior Deltoid and joins inner side of Triceps Brachi Long head. It then joins the Flexor Carpi Ulnaris and follows its Posterior edge of it. It then goes along the lateral side of the Hypothenar digit.
Application: First Outside Line and third outside line of the leg. On the back the first line of the back. On the upper Arm, it is the interior line of the arm.
Myofascial Meridian: Superficial Front line in the Front and superficial back line on the spinal area
Sen Kalathari is closely associated with muscular, skeletal, skin system and also considered the psychic/mental line. Application for paralysis of arms and leg.s Pain in the arms/legs, angina pectoris, epilepsy, schizophrenia, hysteria, various mental diseases. Cardiac Arrhythmia, arthritic fingers, jaundice, hernia, chest pain, shock, rheumatic heart disease.
Major 1: Starts at the Navel crosses to the Nipples and runs into the armpit. From there down the inside of triceps brachi long head and down to the elbow from there it runs between flexor carpi radialis and Palmaris Longus. On reaching the wrist, it opens into five branches ending at the tip of each finger.
Major 2: Starts at the tips of each finger and runs the reverse path of Major line 1 back to the navel. From here it crosses to the other side of the body down to the groin and down to the upper thigh along the adductors. It then crosses the knee and runs along the between the gastroc and soleus muscle. It crosses the front of the malleolus down under the foot to the Plantar aponeurosis and spreads to the end of each toe.
Major 3: Starts at where the Major line 1 crosses into the armpit at the Pectoralis minor goes up clavicle to the clavicular head of the SCM muscle. From here it goes up the clavicular strand of the SCM and up the face to the corner of the eyes
Minor 1: Starts at the Plantar Aponeurosis goes to the lateral side of the foot up the Peroneus Longus tendon. Once it crosses the knee, it follows the Illiotibial Band. Once it reaches the level of the Greater Trochanter, it cuts back across the Gluteus muscles to the inside of the Iliac Crest and up the back in line with the inside edge of the Scapula. From here it follows up the upper Trapezius muscle to the Occiput. It then runs up the Occiput and cuts forward two fingers above the ear to finish at the lateral tip of the eyebrows.
Minor 2: Starts at Minor line 1 at level with C7 it runs down the arm to the Medial Deltoid. At the end of the Deltoid, it goes between the Brachialis and the Biceps Brachialis to the elbow. Once it crosses the elbow, it runs on the Extensor Digitorum to the wrist and fans out to each finger.
On the legs Line 2 inside and outside. Arm Line inside and outside, Back line 2.
Myofascial Meridian: Lateral line on the Lateral part of the legs. The spiral line in the abdominal area.

Works with Sense of taste and smell. Is related to digestive issues, abdominal pain. SEN Sumana also used to with relation to chest problem, hiccups, asthma, spasm of the diaphragm, nausea and cold. All Chakras are located on this Line. Similar to the yogic nadi shushmana.
Major: Starts from the Navel to the Tongue following the sternum and up the Neck.
Minor Line 1: Starts from the Navel and goes around the back of the spinal column up along the skull and to the front over the face finishing in the tongue.
Minor Line 2: Starts from the sternum at the fourth rib runs to both arms in level with the Armpits. Heading towards the armpit runs between the short head of the Biceps Brachi and the Triceps Brachi to the ulnar edge of the forearm. along the posterior side of the forearm. It then runs along the side of the palm finishing at the end of the little finger.
Minor Line 3: Starts at the sternal head of the SCM muscles follows along the clavicle down the medial deltoid between the long head of the Biceps Brachii and lateral head of the Triceps Brachi. Once it crosses the elbow, it goes along the Brachio Radialiis to the anterior edge of the Thumb.
Minor Line 4: Starts from the intersection of Minor Line 1 from the C7 vertebra along posterior deltoid follows the coracobrachialis and then join the Minor Line 2 at the forearm.
Minor 5: Starts at the Perineum down between the Semi Membranous and Garcilis to go between the two Gastroc muscles. It then follows down the Calcaneal tendon and along the Plantar to finish at the big toe
