IATTM - Promoting Traditional Tibetan Medicine in the UK

IATTM is an authentic spirit of Traditional Tibetan Medicine - its aim is to keep TTM alive and relevant to the modern world.


Practised in the context of Western medicine, TTM is an indispensable complement to seekers of natural, holistic diagnosis and treatments. 


TTM can be of great benefit to all today, and it is our desire to provide courses and training to the highest standard possible, as well as to provide accurate up-to-date information on TTM as it is currently practised.


IATTM UK currently organises Ku Nye Therapy courses in the UK, and intends to expand the range of programmes to what is currently being offered in other parts of the world. Go to Courses for more details

  • Courses on Traditional Tibetan Medicine, psychology and related healing sciences
  • Study-tours to Tibet (for practitioners only, not general public)
  • Wellbeing courses and retreats
  • Academic information through IATTM's ‘Journal of Traditional Tibetan Medicine’
  • Publication and distribution of textbooks and teaching materials pertaining to TTM through sorig Press
  • Products for practitioners through its global online shop -Tanadugshop,com

The International Academy for Traditional Tibetan Medicine (IATTMwas established in 2006 to 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 pharmacopoeia, 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.
