What is Sen Pingkhala?

Sen Pingkhala begins one thumb width right of the navel and ends at the inside corner of the right eyebrow.

Sen Pingkhala is the third of ten Sen in the Sen Sib, consisting of one major and four minor lines. Sen Pingkhala mirrors Sen Ittha, which follows identical lines on the left side of the body.

Sen Pingkhala is associated with the Fire Element and is typically related to curing or alleviating headaches, sinusitis, back and neck pains, and sciatic nerve pains. The related organs are the nose, gallbladder and liver, kidneys, and urinary tract system.
