Traditional Tibetan Healthcare is an ancient system of healing which uses gentle herbal remedies without unpleasant side-
Traditional Tibetan Healthcare travelled to the west via Mongolia, Russia and Europe in the early 20th century as well as through Nepal and India via Tibetan refugees during the Cultural Revolution. Traditional texts are being translated into English, Chinese and other languages, as Tibetan Healthcare experiences a revival, but at present there is a shortage of trained doctors and a limited supply of herbs and other ingredients for making the increasingly popular remedies.

Tibetan Doctor Visits Starting in 2002 the New Zealand Karma Kagyu Trust has from time to time brought a traditional Tibetan doctor to visit centres throughout New Zealand for education, and consultation in Tibetan Ayurvedic medicine. Sowa Rigpa (Art of Healing) NZ, is a committee of the New Zealand Karma Kagyu Trust which now organises these visits. Our motivation in bringing Tibetan doctors to NZ is primarily to benefit sick people and to help prevent illness and suffering. We also supply Tibetan herbal remedies(with doctor’s prescription), in addition to a variety of herbal teas, face creams, and ointments. Contact the coordinator on 07-
