Traditional Tibetan Medicine uses a holistic approach to health and well-being. It does not offer a quick fix to relieve symptoms, rather it aims to address imbalance in the body and mind. It can be used on its own or in conjunction with Western medicine. Tibetan medicine recognises the influence of dietary, psychological, environmental and lifestyle factors on the balance or imbalance of the body and mind. It aims to achieve health through balance.

Traditional Tibetan Medicine is safe and is appropriate for anyone. It can be used on its own or in conjuction with Western medicine.

The Clinic takes place every second month, beginning February. See below for dates.

Traditional Tibetan Medicine has been practised in Himalayan countries for over 1000 years. Between the 8th and 13th centuries Tibetan sages evolved a unique medical science, absorbing the finest elements of Indian Ayurvedic, Chinese, Persian and Mongolian medicine into their own indigenous Tibetan practice.

The medicines that Dr Soktsang uses are made from plants and herbs grown mainly on the Tibetan plateau. The preparation of these herbal medicines is carried out using sophisticated processing techniques which are strictly controlled and follow traditional methods. Dr Soktsang will only prescribe medicines that have been approved for use in the UK.
