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 workshop is open to everyone — bodyworkers, health practitioners of all traditions, and laypeople. Students who have not previously studied the Root Tantra (FTTM 1.1–1.4 or TTM 1.1) must attend the Introduction to Tibetan Medicine workshop on July 6.
This workshop is extended and supplemented by the July 12–13 Channels & Points workshop and the July 14–15 Mebum Cupping Therapy workshop.
This workshop is part of the two-year Foundations of TTM program in Tibetan Medicine & External Therapies offered by Sorig Khang Bay Area. Students are welcome to attend individual workshops, or the entire program. Learn more →
