Tibetan Medicine Doctor
Amchi Kunga is an experienced practitioner of traditional Tibetan Medicine and comes from a long and well respected lineage of Amchis originating in Kham, the Eastern region of Tibet. (Amchi: the Tibetan word for doctor). He is the 6th generation of Amchis in his family.
By age 19, Amchi Kunga had completed a traditional three and half years solitary meditation. During his many years as a monk, he studied Buddhist philosophy and astrology along with Tibetan Medicine. The Tibetan medical system is one of the world's oldest known medical traditions. It is an integral part of Tibetan culture and has been developed through many centuries.
His extensive knowledge and training passed down from generation to generation, combined with his intense studies at the monastery, has earned him recognition with the Central Council of Tibetan Medicine, in Dharamsala. He has also traveled extensively throughout Asia and after leaving the monastery, presided over many clinics in the Dharamsala, Goa and Ladakh regions of India.
Amchi Kunga travels to Calgary on a monthly basis to offer Tibetan Medicine consultations and treatments with a focus on Herbal Medicine.
