About Tibetan Massage – Ku Nye
Pronouned “Coon-Yee”, in its most simple terms means Ku, to apply oil, and Nye, to massage. This wonderful, ancient massage has taken place throughout the Himalayan region and Tibet for thousands of years and draws on Indian, Chinese and Persian wisdom as well as its own traditions. As with many Eastern massage treatments, it uses an holistic approach in viewing the body as a whole – and balancing energy flow and life-force as well as physical benefits. Tibetan Medicine believes that we are made up of five basic elements: earth, water, fire, wind and space. It is the wind element that is the focus of Ku Nye.
The hands-on techniques applied in Tibetan massage are surprisingly similar to those used in Western methods. Such methods include rubbing, kneading, stroking and stimulation of acupressure points. The oil/medium used in the massage treatment not only provides slip for the therapist, but binds the wind element in place and brings it into balance.
The course is accredited with The Beauty and Holistic Guilds and carries 7 CPD units. This very special course includes a unique music CD and a start-up duo of exclusive and award-winning massage creme and toner concentrate, enough for your first five treatments!
No pre-requisite training is needed, and beginners are very welcome. You will receive a Certificate of Attendance rather than the insurable CPD Diploma if you're an existing and insured therapist. We can also upgrade your Certificate to a Diploma at no extra cost should you choose to go on to become a professional therapist.
Added Benefits of Traditional Tibetan Music
The CD you will be provided with as part of this course is in itself, highly therapeutic. Created just for Face The World and this course, it incorporates Tibetan chimes, singing bowls and the unmistakable sounds of Tibetan monks chanting.
Tibetan chimes (Ting-sha) have been used in prayer and religious rituals for as long as the Tibetan Monasteries have existed. The pure tones are said to cleanse the air and banish negative frequencies – energising Chi and readying the environment for prayer, mediation and healing.
Singing Bowls produce sound waves with frequencies that resonate and enable the theta state of the brain as well as restore a healthy vibrational state of the body, mind and spirit. Theta brainwaves induce the state of deep meditation and relaxation that is also said to enhance intuition, creative thinking and promote healing from disorders such as stress, anxiety, depression and insomnia.
A Buddhist Chant or “deep voice” chanting is incredibly hard to master. The phaynx or false vocal chords are controlled in such a way as to create a second or even third/fourth overtone to be amplified at the same time as the first note. This is reputed to be a multidimensional waveform which operates on several levels of the body and mind. This sound is said to be in sync with the creative force of the Universe, in Hindu known as AUM (Om), which was the sound that initiated creation.
Our bespoke music, therefore, is a perfect and authentic companion to enhance the overall experience and benefits for your client.
