Therapies include aqua-puncture, massage and many other traditional Chinese techniques.
“The main objective is that we are going to serve the patients because very few hospitals are here. Maybe they have very little chance to receive the necessary therapy,” said Lee, a doctor.
“I have blood pressure. It is better now. Our Tibetan herbal medicine takes many days and it does not help. But this has helped me a lot,” said Tenzin, a Tibetan patient.
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a range of traditional medical practices originating in China that developed over several thousand years.
TCM practices include theories, diagnosis and treatments such as herbal medicine, acupuncture and massage.
“Amchi” or traditional Tibetan medication prescribing herbal and other natural ailments is still widely prevalent among Tibetan Buddhists, who often lack access to modern medicine. (ANI)
