It is known as gSo-ba Rigpa in Tibetan, meaning 'the science of healing'. The basic principle is to balance the three principal energies of the body. The practitioner employs the ancient tools of pulse diagnosis and urine analysis, to find the root causes of disease.

Tibetan Medicine is based on Buddhist principles and the close relationship between mind and body.
