IATTM started in 2006 to help maintain the integrity and authenticity of Traditional Tibetan Medicine (TTM) teachings and to promote the continuity of its practice,
TTM itself dates back to antiquity.
TTM is, like many traditional Asian healing systems, a science and an art, and treats the individual as a whole, rather than only the symptoms .
While there are some superficial similarities with Ayurvedic medicine and traditional Chinese Medicine, TTM has its own unique history and development - rooted in the Tibetan landscape, the indigenous culture, and the spirit of the Tibetan people.
One of the interesting features of TTM is that it can be practiced either as a secular healing system or as part of Buddhist philosophy.
It contains a comprehensive philosophy, cosmology, and system of subtle anatomy with associated spiritual practices. TTM encompasses a wealth of knowledge on anatomy and physiology, embryology, pathology, methods of diagnosis, and cure.
Essential to TTM is the knowledge of a huge herbal pharmacopeia, as well as a large body of external therapies which are little-known here.
TTM addresses the individual’s needs as a whole – body, mind, and spirit – in an integrated way, to include the internal as well as the way that the person interacts with the external environment.
