GOLFX / Energy Flow For thousands of years, civilizations have developed and maintained healing systems based on belief in a life force that circulates through energy pathways in the body. Indian Ayurvedic medicine calls this life force prana, the Chinese tradition refers to it as qi, and traditional Thai medicine calls it lom. This energy is believed to be absorbed into the body from the food we eat, the air we breathe, and all living things around us. In traditional Thai massage, energy follows pathways or energy lines that are called sen. A blockage in any line may impede or prevent the free flow of energy and may lead to aches, disease, and pain on emotional, psychological, physical, and even spiritual levels. See what benefits await you. 91
