Kum Nye and Medical Chi Kung Massage

Buddhist Healing Massage

Kum Nye and Medical Chi Kung (or medical chi gong) massage are Himalayan yogic forms of healing which involve cooperative movement, the application of differing kinds of physical pressure over a small area (“marma,” or body reflex massage), physical tapping or light vibration, acupressure, mild stretching of muscle and/or bone, massage of nerve, lymphatic, circulatory or pranic pathways, and the use of prana (life energy, or chi). The massage may be very focused to one area of the body, or an entire body revivfication. Sometimes herbal therapy is delivered transdermally via oil with the massage if required. All methods are directed toward stimulating healing and rejuvenation. 

There is also a form of self massage taught at Buddha’s Alchemy. The more sophisticated methods of self massage entail the use of hatha and prana yoga for self healing.

Buddhist massage utilizes all of the above methods with the integration of concentration and focussing of mind-heart energy. 

Some examples of conditions treated:
  • returns circulation to normal function
  • speeds healing
  • relieves pressure through changed circulation
  • calms pain receptors in nerves
  • speeds recovery
  • equalizes circulatory balance
  • assists with elimination of local toxins
  • calms and sedates nerves
  • reduces inflammation
  • removes inflammation
  • removes bone calcification deposits
  • relieves pressure or impingment
  • equalizes circulation to improve oxygen uptake
  • calms and sedates nerves

Today we began the garden root harvest. There is still more to come, but we have a good start. Angelica, Marshmallow, and Elecampane started the season. I feel some cough medicine in the works!

Elecampane root (Inula helenium) is suited to conditions of Dampness and Phlegm due to its drying and expectorant qualities. It treats respiratory conditions such as coughs , asthma, pleurisy, bronchitis and infections. In addition, it is rejuvenating to the Lung Qi, and hence can be used as a Qi tonic. Elecampane also clears Phlegm from the digestive tract. It is a digestive aid and especially warming to the Spleen when dry fried. It can be used to treat nausea and vomiting, diarrhea, dysentery, cholecystitis, gallstones and intestinal worms. Its anti-parasitic property makes it useful in treating malaria. Elecampane can be used externally to relieve neurogenic pain such as sciatica and rheumatism.

Angelica archangelica root is a warming diaphoretic, and a cousin to Angelica sinensis, the well known Chinese herb called Dang gui. Angelica archangelica is commonly used as an expectorant to treat phlegm in the lungs, and also to release Exterior Wind-Cold and dispel Wind-Damp in colds, asthma, coughs and bronchitis. As it dispels Wind-Damp-Cold, it is also used to treat arthritis and rheumatism. Angelica archangelica moves Blood, and is effective as an emmenagogue. As a carminative and stomachic, it can treat poor digestion. This is a fantastic and versatile garden herb. Processing the roots is an aromatic experience, and will leave your hands smelling wonderful, but sticky from the angelicin (resin).

Marshmallow root (Althaea officinalis) is a well know Western cooling demulcent herb due to its generous mucilage content. Marshmallow can be employed in a variety of conditions. It soothes cough, is anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory, calms fevers, tonifies Yin and clears Heat toxins. Marshmallow also stops bleeding. Marshmallow can be applied to any situation where mucous membranes are dry, inflamed or irritated, including urinary stones, cough/bronchitis/laryngitis, IBS/Chron’s, gangrene, cystitis, and ulcers. It can also be used to tonify Yin in wasting diseases like diabetes, and to stop various kinds of bleeding. The root and leaves may be used, with the root containing the highest amount of mucilage. Mucilage does not tincture well, so direct application or cold infusions are the best choice for medicine.
