In 2012, I was awarded the Menrampa degree (equivalent to a master’s degree in Tibetan Medicine) from Men Tsee Khang. In 2014, I worked in Dharamsala in MTK’s publication and documentation department in Dharamsala where I translated ancient Ayurvedic medical treatises to Tibetan language.

Tibetan medicine is an ancient healing tradition from Tibet. Over the millennia, Tibetan Medicine has evolved into a profound philosophy, psychology, science, and art. It is a holistic system where every individual is unique, and healing is specifically aims to find out the very root cause of the problem. The mind and body relationship are very important aspect of Tibetan Medicine. It is closely interconnected with Buddhist philosophy of interdependence of human body, mind, and nature and practice of 4 immeasurable qualities of love, joy, compassion, and equanimity.

Health in Tibetan medicine is a dynamic equilibrium or balance of five cosmo-physical elements or three bio-energies of Loong (wind), Tripa (fire), and Baekan (earth and water). Pulse reading is many years of experiential and intuitive way of finding out the imbalances of energies. Listening patiently to the patients, observing their tongue and urine is also an important part. Proper diet and lifestyle regimen is the most important factors for a healthy mind and body. So, giving the right diet and lifestyle advice according to the imbalances is a perfect preventive and healing remedial measures I always prefer and practice in my journey with the clients.

My two decades of experience with clients make me confident of healing people with chronic disorders like gastro- intestinal problems, nervous problems, arthritis, allergies, asthma, respiratory conditions, skin problems, and other metabolic disorders. It is also very helpful for psycho somatic conditions, anxiety, depression, sleeping problems and emotional health.
