Right now, you can become a Ku Nye Therapist


Ku Nye originated from the ancient kingdom of Tibet over 3900 years ago and is a practice indigenous to the Tibetan medical tradition.


Ku means ‘to apply’ or to anoint the body with therapeutic oils to be absorbed through the skin, and Nye refers to the actual massage.


Nye Techniques include kneading, rubbing and pressing muscles and tendons, and the application of pressure to various points and channels.


All our Ku Nye courses are taught by trained, experienced and practising Ku Nye therapists personally trained by Dr. Nida Chenagtsang, Medical Director of IATTM, who teaches Level 3. The links on the left menu tell you more about each level.

Ku Nye belongs to the fourth category of TTM treatment (application of external therapies) and is used to maintain or restore harmonious balance. It can be combined with other external therapies such as moxabustion, stick therapy, cupping, Lums bathing therapy, stone and shell massage, and the use of compresses. Each therapy complements and reinforces the rewarding results of Ku Nye.


The rejuvenating and restorative benefits and functions of Ku Nye are mentioned in many original Tibetan texts including the Bum Shi, Gyud Shi and Ton Huang medical text. Some of the benefits include the elimination of stored toxins in the body, increased vitality, the reduction and alleviation of various types of pain, the calming of nervous disorders including insomnia, depression and anxiety.


Ku Nye is particularly effective on deeply ingrained pain resulting from imbalances elsewhere in the body, and facilitates the overcoming of grief and traumatic experiences.


To fully qualify in Ku Nye there are three levels of certified training.


Each level consists of ten days of theory and a lot of practice with qualified Ku nye Instructors, split into two five-day programmes per level.


You do not need to go through all three levels to be able to offer a basic Ku Nye massage. Level 1 is enough to learn how to do it properly.


If you wish to continue with a deeper theoretical and practical understanding of how to use Ku Nye in various ways, then you can go to Levels 2 and 3.
