Sowa Rigpa (Tib. གསོ་བ་རིག་པ་), the ‘Science of Healing’, is the medical system of Tibet and other Himalayan regions including Bhutan, Nepal, Ladakh, Sikkim, and Mongolia. It is one of the oldest healing traditions in existence, yet it remains fully alive and intact even today. Incorporated elements from the foreign medical systems of India, China, and Ancient Greece it retains its own distinctly Himalayan character, shaped by both Buddhist and pre-Buddhist thought. Sowa Rigpa is a truly holistic system of medicine that approaches the total health of the individual from the perspective of physical body, energy, and mind and has the fourfold aim of preventing illness, curing illness, extending life, and cultivating happiness.
