Hormé Warm Oil Therapy: Soothing Stress, Calming Mind (FTTM 5.5)

  • San Rafael San Rafael, CA, 94901 United States (map)

Hands-on Workshop with Jason Whitlow

Hormé is one of the essential healing therapies described in the root texts of Tibetan Medicine. This safe and simple method uses herbal compresses and warm oil to unwind the nervous system and deeply relax and nourish the body and mind.

Hormé can be performed as a standalone therapy, or combined with other healing modalities such as acupuncture or massage. In the Tibetan medical tradition, Hormé is one of the superior remedies for stress, anxiety, and insomnia. It is also excellent for prenatal as well as postpartum care.

In this hands-on workshop we will review the fundamentals of Tibetan Medicine, focusing on the function and disorders of ‘loong’ or wind energy. We will learn about the historical use of Hormé, as well as how to identify the types of people and conditions it can benefit. We will then study the points where Hormé can be applied, learn how to prepare the oil and herbal compresses, and practice offering the therapy to each other.

This workshop is open to everyone, with no prerequisites, and is part of the Foundations of TTM program in Tibetan Medicine & External Therapies offered by Sorig Khang Bay Area and Sorig Khang International. Learn more →
