Traditional Tibetan Medicine Clinic 22nd July (Time: 9:00 am - 5:00 pm)

Traditional Tibetan Medicine offers a truly holistic approach to your health and wellbeing. The Tibetan medical system focuses on treating the root cause of the problem as opposed to alleviating the discomfort caused by the symptoms.
It can be used alone or in conjunction with Western medicine.
It recognises how dietary, psychological, lifestyle and environmental factors cause imbalance in the body and mind.

Our medicines are sourced from rare plants and herbs grown on the Tibetan Plateau.
The medicines are made according to an age-old tradition, which follows strict methods, and uses sophisticated processing techniques.

lobsang_arranThe practitioner, Lobsang Dhonden Soktsang, will see you in strictest confidence. Although his English is still improving, if you speak slowly and clearly, he will be able to understand what is necessary for your consultation. If you have any doubts about this, in each of his clinics there is an assistant for the clinic of the day.

We have a sliding scale of rates for consultation, depending on the financial circumstances of the patient, with concessionary and medical card rates.

To make an appointment to see the Dr, or for more information call 01 4537427 or email
