Sowa Rigpa

Sowa rigpa is the traditional system of medicine from Tibet. Historically, sowa rigpa was influenced by both ayurveda and traditional chinese medicine and bears similarities to both. It also encompasses a unique understanding of compassion and the mind rooted in Tibetan Buddhism.

At Therapiya, the balance between the three ‘nyepas’ or energies within each individual, loong, tripa and baekan, is explored to then prescribe the best suited treatments, supplements and meditation to each client. Treatments such as ku nye, dhugs, chu lum and hor gyi metsa are offered under the guidance of our senior consultant.

Our team of therapists is fully trained and formally certified from the Men-Tsee-Khang, the Tibetan Medical and Astrology Institute in Dharamsala. All sowa rigpa oils, products, herbs and teas used at Therapiya are sourced from the Men-Tsee-Khang.
