Tibetan Medical Clinic



Several years ago ten nuns completed Tibetan Medicine studies with Dr. Lobsang who was trained under the late famous Shakar Rinpoche (known as ShakarAmji). Eight of the nun doctors serve at a medical clinic in Swayambu called “Tara Abbey Clinic”.  Two are working in a new medical clinic in their village in Nubri in northern Nepal.


The medical clinic is situated in Swayambunath near the large stupa and is staffed by eight of the nun medical doctors, practicing both Tibetan Medicine and acupuncture.


A very skilled acupuncturist with clinics in Spain and the UK trained them and will return for further training. The nuns make most of the medicine and also make special incense at Tara Abbey.


Nun doctors visit remote areas of Himalayas and treat the local people there with acupuncture and Tibetan medicines every year for free.
