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


  • Tibetan House 4900 Tchoupitoulas Street New Orleans, LA, 70115 United States (map)

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.
