Chagpori Tibetan Medical Institute

Tibetan Medicine (continued)

A consultation in Tibetan medicine consists of examining urine, pulse, tongue and eyes. With the pulse diagnosis it is possible to check the balance of the three basic energies mentioned earlier, as well as the condition of the different organs.

The Tibetan doctor gives advice for diet and conduct and if necessary gives Tibetan herbal pills, and sometimes additional therapies are advised such as massage, acupressure with herbs, and meditation.
