Tibetan Healing

Tibetan Healing

Kunye message dates back some centuries. It was used in the Himalayan regions. This type of message has relaxation and healing qualities.

Tibetan medicine is used as a way to bring the various elements of the body into balance. This is accomplished by using various types of progressive treatment.

What you see below is not necessarily a full explanation. It is rather an introduction that hopefully you can find useful.


These four different types of treatment include as follows: Diet, lifestyle, medicine and therapy. Diet and lifestyle both involve changes in the type of foods we eat and behaviors we engage in.

Only when these two methods prove ineffective is the physician advised to prescribe medicine and therapy. External therapies can broadly be summarized under two types: mild and drastic therapies.

Mild therapies are more generally practiced in Tibetan medicine as they are easily administered. It is these mild therapies that have direct beneficial results.

Mild therapies include massage, fomentation, heat compress, and medicinal bath therapy. The drastic therapies that one may encounter while involved in Tibetan medicine often involve usage of an emetic (vomit-inducing therapy).

More Explanation

One type of mild therapy used in Tibetan medicine is the Kunye message therapy. Certain oils are used while specific nerves and tendons are very carefully and strategically rubbed.

Another very popular mild therapy method is fomentation. This is the use of a warm, moist medicinal compress. It is one that is used to help relieve pain.

Fomentation may be possibly used in conjunction with the medicinal compress. Perhaps another form of therapy that is very related that would be helpful is the medicinal bath therapy.


Nature of the Treatment

The real difference between Tibetan and other medicinal practices of course is in the method of approach. Unlike many modern medicine practices, the Tibetan healing approaches causes of a problem rather than just the surface symptoms of a problem.

In case you are wondering, it is the herbs that are designed to help alleviate the causes of certain ailments. As a result, the hope is that certain symptoms are relieved.

The persons who are usually involved in Tibetan healing and/or overseeing the creation of Tibetan herbs are qualified Tibetan doctors. This is to assure that when you choose to use natural remedies in the correct manner via a qualified professional, you are getting a good, equal, balance herbal blend.

Sources of Herbs

Some of the herbs used in Tibetan healing are primarily grown on the Tibetan border. For instance, they may be found in Walung, Nepal. However, some herbs must be brought in from other areas whereas some plants do not grow in, around, or near this locality.
