Traditional Tibetan Medicine (known in Tibetan as Sowa Rigpa) is one of the oldest healing traditions in existence, offering a vast medical knowledge that is accessible to everyone. In addition to its lifestyle, diet, and herbal remedies, TTM contains a sophisticated array of healing therapies including Ku Nye Tibetan massage, Horme Mongolian oil therapy, Lum bath therapy, Yukcho stick therapy, La energy massage, and more.

In this talk, Jason will offer an overview of the external healing therapies in the Tibetan medical tradition.
