Ku-nye

Post by kalden yungdrung » Thu May 03, 2012 6:29 pm

Among them, Massage (Ku-nye) is one of the very practical and effective methods to restore the energy and keep the humors in balance. Especially it is an effective method for rlung/wind disorder or psychological originated disorders.

Tashi delek,

Here a link regarding Ku-nye or Tibetan massage.

A few questions:

- Especially it is an effective method for rlung/wind disorder or psychological originated disorders.
How can this be explained, the psychological aspect?

- How can which Tibetan system (energy) be effected by massage.?

- Is this done also with the help of pressure?

- How is the upward and downward energy influenced, in what case?


Thanks at before hand,

Very simply, "ku" means to apply warm oil. Oil has the oppoiste qualities of lung; lung is sharp, cold, rough, light, motile; while oil is heavy, warm, dull, smooth, and stable.

The symptoms of many mental illnesses include wind symptoms.

The "nye" part means "to rub" -- so by rubbing, one can place the winds back in their proper place in the body.

If the wind becomes out of balance, it automatically disturbs the other humors. Therefore, at all times balancing wind is important.

Relax, don’t worry about all the problems of samsara. Everything is relative. But try to be present.
