Ku-nye is a system of massage and gentle external therapies taught in the ancient lineage of traditional Tibetan Medicine. Kunye Massage includes techniques such as applying herbal-infused oils to the body, manual tissue manipulation, deep tissue work, identifying & acting on specific points, mobilizing the joints, and warming the body.   Kunye also includes external therapies such as hot and cold compresses, herbal poultices, and application of heated oils.

The therapeutic treatments of Kunye can be applied to the entire body, utilizing proper draping and positioning of the client.  Kunye is performed on a raised massage table, or seated on a massage chair, depending on the comfort and condition of the client.

Kunye Therapy has been employed by Tibetan physicians and yogins for many centuries.  It is one of the most ancient systems of massage in the world, and an important component of traditional Tibetan Medicine.
