The Traditional Tibetan Mild Therapies taught in this course—”Jamche” (‘jam dpyad)—include massage therapy (‘Kunye,’ bsku mnye), compresses (dugs pa), hydrotherapy (lums), heat therapy (hor me), and cupping therapy (me bum), among others. These holistic practices are said to harmonize imbalances in the subtle energies that flow through the body (rlung), and promote health, wellness, and relaxation. After providing a theoretical overview & demonstration of these authentic Tibetan therapies, our Jamche-Kunye program focuses on practicing therapy methods in the group. We then organize practice sessions, where participants work with “volunteer clients” under the supervision of our teachers.
Anyone is who has completed (or is currently participating in) our Fundamentals of Traditional Tibetan Medicine is welcome to join! Your teachers will be traditional Tibetan Amchis, alongside other experienced and qualified teachers. The course is taught in English with German translation.
