སྨན་ཁང་ Clinic

Located in Colorado at: 2955 Valmont Rd   Suite 100 – Boulder, CO 80301 Our Tibetan Medicine & Holistic Healing Clinic offers consults, bodywork sessions and treatments by appointment using the ancient principles and medicines of Traditional Tibetan Medicine.

We follow the traditional Tibetan methods of diagnosis. According to the Tibetan Medical Tantras, or rgyud bzhi, there are 38 methods of diagnosis. This is divided into 3 categories of questioning, observation, and touch. The Tibetan doctor will ask many questions and then proceed with palpitation of the pulse and some points o the body and read the urine and tongue. Expect your first visit with us to be at least 1-1.5 hours long. Subsequent consults are shorter.

Following your first visit we make recommendations based on our knowledge as Tibetan physicians. This is in no way to be considered a substitute for licensed and qualified medical care. A variety of Tibetan Medicine treatments may be employed to help your conditions, basic body type or nature. These can include diet and lifestyle recommendations, and should you choose to include Traditional Tibetan mineral and herbal supplements may be offered alongside a variety of accessory therapies such as massage, acupressure and moxibustion and bath therapies.

The pure essence of Tibetan Medicine is unchanged in our approach to educating patients. We strive to always protect and continue the lineage as it was taught to us and not let it become watered down. Nashalla feels especially passionate about preserving and honoring the system and avoiding cultural appropriation. This became a priority to her while studying a largely untranslated system and learning how to communicate to western patients about the basic theory and practices they are engaging in. She often offers seminars and workshops to teach the fundamentals of Tibetan Medicine principles around the country.

While other healing systems are considered and at times employed, we very clearly state what is originally from Tibetan medicine and what is from other alternative and complementary modalities, be they modern or ancient.  At our clinic we strive to educate the patients about what to expect when consulting a Tibetan Doctor and how to apply the Tibetan system of healing to help themselves. We try to do our best to provide a careful and accurate translation of an ancient system without loosing the integrity of the lineage passed down for centuries that sometimes occurs in western cultures with ancient healing modalities. This is rooted in years of study and careful consideration of the medical texts and Tibetan cultural preservation.
