Ku Nye Tibetan Massage Level 1 with Eric Rosenbush, L.Ac.

10 AM – 6 PM Central

Ku Nye is the therapeutic massage practice of Traditional Tibetan Medicine (TTM), originating almost 4,000 years ago in Tibet. As an integrated part of the holistic healing science of TTM, Ku Nye offers specific therapeutic methods to balance the patient’s particular ailment or imbalance as well as to harmonize and support their natural bodily constitution.

This comprehensive, multi-part training includes a study of the fundamentals of TTM as well as the channel and point systems of the body. Practitioners will learn how to assess the condition of the patient, apply herbal oils, mobilize the body, apply heat or cold, massage the muscles, tendons, points, and channels of the body using various techniques, and remove the oils. Practitioners will also learn how to integrate Ku Nye with other external therapies.

This training is open to everyone — bodyworkers, health practitioners of all traditions, and laypeople — with no prerequisites. It will be followed by Ku Nye Level 2 and further Tibetan External Therapies trainings in 2019 and beyond. We are currently in the process of applying to offer CE credits through the Louisiana Board of Massage Therapy.

Traditional Tibetan Medicine (TTM) is one of the oldest healing sciences in existence. It offers a vast medical knowledge that is accessible to everyone, and supports the cultivation of a happy mind along with a healthy body.

In this workshop we will gain an overview of the fundamentals of Tibetan Medicine. We will explore essential concepts including interdependent connection (tendrel), cause and effect (karma), and continuous authentic education (tantra), and will learn how the building blocks of the five elements form our body, energy, mind, and the world around us.

We will also learn about the dynamic energetic qualities known as the three nyepa (loong, treepa, and beken, or wind, bile, and phlegm) as well as the seven body constituents and three waste products. We will learn how, when these energetic and physical aspects are in balance, we enjoy good health, long life, and a balanced and happy mind, and when they are imbalanced, we experience disease.

Students who have not previously studied the Root Tantra (FTTM 1.1–1.4 or TTM 1.1) and who wish to attend the July 7–10 Ku Nye Tibetan Massage Intensive, the July 12–13 Channels & Points workshop, or the July 14–15 Mebum Cupping Therapy workshop must take this workshop as a prerequisite.

Introduction to Tibetan ‘La’ Massage

8:00 AM08:00

Introduction to Tibetan ‘La’ Massage

10 AM – 6 PM Central

‘La’ Massage is one of the subtle energetic treatments from the Tibetan medical tradition. It is used to replenish the vital protective energy known as ‘la’, described in both the Tibetan medical and astrological traditions as an essence of our consciousness. ‘La’ energy pervades the body, circulating through it on a lunar cycle and giving us strength and vigor, as well as bliss, sensitivity, and satisfaction. Signs of depleted ‘la’ energy include feelings of tiredness, sadness, and anxiety, a fuzzy mind, and a grayish complexion.

In this workshop, we will review the fundamentals of Tibetan Medicine, including the five elements and three humors, and will learn how their gross and subtle forms (including ‘la’ energy) manifest in our body, energy, and mind. Jason will then introduce the practice of ‘La’ Massage, including the visualizations, recitations, and techniques used to contact and replenish this protective energy. Advice will also be given on how we can gather and protect ‘la’ energy in our day-to-day life, as a means of supporting our vitality and sense of blissful well-being.

Root of Health & Disease in Tibetan Medicine (FTTM 1.2)

In this module, we will study the fundamental principles of health and disease in Tibetan Medicine.

Tibetan Medicine explains that the nature of health is balance, and the nature of disease is imbalance. We will learn about the dynamic energetic qualities known as the three nyepa (loong, treepa, and beken, or wind, bile, and phlegm), and study the seven body constituents and three waste products. We will learn how, when these energetic and physical aspects are in balance, we are well-nourished and enjoy good health, long life, and a balanced and happy mind.

We will also study the fundamentals of pathology, including the causes and contributing conditions of disease. We will learn how disease manifests when the nyepa become deficient, in excess, or disordered in the various parts and systems of the body, and how diseases can be grouped into the two categories of hot-natured (inflammatory) diseases and cold-natured (metabolic) diseases.
