Tibetan Massage (Ku Nye)

Ku Nye originated in the ancient kingdoms of Tibet over 3900 years ago & is a practice indigenous to the Tibetan Medical tradition. Earliest Tibetans practiced Ku Nye through the diagnosis & application of specific infused oil or substances extracted from butter to treat the person’s imbalance or constitution. Tree branches, sticks & stones were widely used as part of the therapy to exert pressure on different parts & points of the body in order to restore the individual to a state of health & well-being.

Techniques of Ku Nye include the kneading, rubbing & pressing of muscles, tendons & the application of pressure to various points & channels. Chi is the final part of Ku Nye therapy which involves cleaning the oils from the body using barley or chickpea powder.
