TRADITIONAL TIBETAN MEDICINE
Tibetan Medicine is one of humanity’s great ancient natural medicinal traditions with a comprehensive, holistic perspective that addresses the body, energy system, and mind. These safe, yet profound, modalities are unique and a rare treat to experience. A full spectrum of healing modalities are traditionally used, including:
Tibetan Herbal Massage
Herbal oils are selected, then heated, to be worked into the skin, penetrating the deep in the tissues. The therapy progresses to deeper work on the muscles, energy points, and meridians restoring the body’s energy, balance, and health.
Tibetan Herbal Compress Massage
Herbal Ball Massage is an ancient method of providing relaxation, stress relief, energy, and improved health. It is achieved by the application of poultices filled with herbs and spices. Poultices are traditionally soaked and steamed before they’re applied to the body where they are absorbed into the skin. The poultices—when combined with gentle manipulation—relieves tension and knots from the body.
Thai Herbal Massage Benefits
Hot poultices soothe muscles and joints. Thai herbal massage employs a gentler approach compared to a hands-on massage. Just like acupressure, Thai herbal massage stimulates the body’s internal systems, leaving the patient relaxed, yet revitalized. Herbal ball massage improves blood circulation, range of motion, organ function, and flexibility.
Different herbs used in the hot compress will also provide different health benefits. For instance, ginger has a soothing effect on the digestive system; lemongrass boosts immunity; jasmine improves mood; and turmeric has been proven to heal infections.
There is historical evidence in ancient Tibetan and Chinese texts that cupping therapy was practiced in ancient Tibet and China nearly 3,500 years ago. Since ancient times, the Tibetans and Chinese have believed that the practice of cupping helps open blocked pathways that carry raw life energy or “Qi” which thereby help rejuvenate and revive the body, and regenerate tired and worn body tissues. The technique employed in the process involves holding a flame directly beneath glass cups and then placing and pressing the heated cups onto the parts of the body to be treated. The vacuum created by the heat within the cup sucks up the skin and the body tissues in the area directly beneath the cup, creating an intense arching action of the skin and body tissues. This arching action causes an increase in blood circulation in the localized area. This aids the release of dangerous toxins from the blood and activates the lymphatic system in the body, flushing out carcinogens and other toxins from the treated areas of the body. Cupping is characterized as a safe and non-invasive treatment for chronic aches and pains, stressed out muscles, and for general relaxation. When combined with acupuncture and various other massage techniques, cupping can help release toxins from the body and help ease chronic aches and pains.
