Pronounced “Coon-Yee,” Tibetan massage has been practiced for thousands
of years in Tibet and the Himalayan region of Asia as an integral part of Tibetan
Medicine. Tibetan Wellness and Healing Center is honored to offer this ancient
healing practice to our patients.
In Tibetan, the word Ku means to apply oil and Nye means to apply pressure
with a variety of movements. In a Ku Nye treatment, the practitioner focuses
on specific points on the body which correspond to different constitutions or
natural of illnesses. Ku Nye uses natural products such as butter, sesame oil,
olive oil and sandalwood oil as massage lotion. After your massage, your Ku
Nye practitioner will also apply ChiPa, a cleansing technique. This cleansing
technique uses different natural powders to absorb the oil from the skin.
KuNye is beneficial as a stand-alone treatment as well as a preventative measure
against illnesses and a supportive treatment in conjunction with other modalities.
It is an excellent way to relax and promote general health and well-being. In
your KuNye treatment, you may receive consultation on diet, herbs, and health
based on the four seasons. Since ancient times in Tibet, it has been believed
that KuNye aids in longevity by clearing and sharpening the sensory organs while
supporting the function of the internal organs.
