Tibetan Traditional Medicine

Traditional Tibetan Medicine has been practiced in Himalayan countries for over 1000 years and is now available at Tara Trust in Edinburgh, Kagyu Samye Dzong London and at the Samye Ling Tibetan Centre in Dumfriesshire. Between the 8th and 13th centuries, Tibetan sages evolved a unique medical science, integrating the finest elements of Indian Ayurvedic, Chinese, Persian, Mongolian and indigenous Tibetan systems.

Tibetan Medicine is a fully holistic system, highly esteemed throughout Asia for its subtle and accurate diagnoses and effective treatment. It focuses on treating the root cause of symptoms unique to each person and seeks to restore a healthy balance to body and mind.
