What flows in the Sen? The traditional term is Lom or “Wind”. However, Lom is more than the elemental force one of the “Thaat Thang Sii” is literally wind, breath and vitality. It is the essence of vitality and life force. This essence or force is known in all cultures by different names such as Taoist Qi, Chi, Ki, Huna (Mana), Elan Vital, Ka, Orgonne, Shakti, Holy Spirit, African Ashe.


Traditional Thai medicine, often abbreviated as TTM, has many different aspects. Thai medicine takes into account everything from the taste of the herbs that are used to the four primary elements. The four elements (earth, fire, wind and water) must be perfectly balanced in order for the body to remain balanced. Each of the four elements controls certain areas or organs of the body. This is known as the Four Element Theory.


The Four Element Theory is seen in many cultures, including China, India and the Mayans, but it is the true heart of ancient Thai medicine. It is this belief that many practitioners use when helping to heal the body.


Earth - The element of Earth controls many of the organs and main parts of the body, such as: brain, rectum, hair, nails, stomach, liver, bone and bone marrow, heart, kidneys, lungs, intestine, spleen, tendons and ligaments, skin, teeth and muscles. All things controlled by the Earth element can be touched.


Fire - The element of fire controls heat in the body. This heat improves circulation, assists with digestion, generates warmth beside the lungs and increases the metabolism.


Wind - The element of wind controls the wind and movement of the body, such as respiration.


Water - The element of water controls the fluids of the body. For example: joint lubrication, blood, tears and saliva.
