Traditional Tibetan Medicine (TTM) is a holistic system of health dating back to antiquity. Both a science and an art, TTM treatments are not just to cure illnesses but it is also aimed at maintaining wellness and good health for all.
A unique feature of TTM is its diagnosis taken from the perspective of an integrated body, mind and spirit. TTM looks at not just a personâ€™s mental or emotional state but also the way in which an individual interacts with the physical and social environment. Sharing some superficial similarities with Indian Ayurvedic medicine and traditional Chinese Medicine, TTM however, has its own genesis, history, and development rooted in Tibetâ€™s 3000 year old culture.
Practised alongside Buddhist philosophy, TTM consists of the study of a comprehensive system of subtle energies combined with rich knowledge on anatomy and physiology, embryology, pathology, diagnosis and cure. Its science includes a huge herbal pharmacopoeia, as well as a large body of External Therapies such as Ku Nye massages which are little-known in the Western world.
With practitioners in 22 countries, TTMâ€™s gentle, non invasive Ku Nye treatments are being used to restore subtle energy imbalance, induce deep relaxation and provide quick pain relief without the need of pharmaceuticals and strong drugs.
