Traditional Thangka depicting medical and surgical instruments of Tibetan healing Practice.
“Tibetan medical practices include the ancient medical arts and sciences of acupuncture, bleeding, moxibustion, meditation, yoga, healing mineral medicinal baths and other therapies.
An essential theory of Tibetan Buddhism assumes that three main poisons rule the existence of all beings, including humans. These three poisons are greed, delusion and sensual attachment. Tibetan Medicine interprets and assesses three elemental energies :Wind (tib: rLung), Bile (tib: mKhrispa) and Phlegm (tib: Badken). These three constituent energies constantly flow in the human body and sustain health along with cognitive awareness. Practitioners ascribing to essential principles of Tibetan Medicine aspire to equally treat the mind and body’s constituent energies.” ~Rabten, Tashi. (2018).
