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

My favorite time of year again - wild rose harvest. Rose is considered an astringent herb.

Rosa spp. (hips/fruit/flower) – Rose

TCM: Jing Ying Zi (hips); Ayurveda: Gulab, Shatapatri

Rose hips are neutral to cool, drying, astringent, and sour in TCM, and bitter, astringent, pungent, and sweet in Ayurveda. In TCM, they affect the Kidneys, Bladder and Large Intestine. In Ayurveda, rose petals and hips are used, and they are considered balancing to the 3 doshas, but are especially effective at reducing Pitta. They affect the plasma, marrow, blood, nerve and reproductive dhatus.

Properties of Rosa spp. flowers are anti-bacterial, antidepressant, anti-inflammatory, antidiuretic, anti-viral, aphrodisiac, antispasmodic, blood tonic, carminative, expectorant, kidney tonic, and sedative.

Properties of Rosa spp. hips/fruit are stomachic, antidiarrheal, cholesterol lowering, antidiuretic, stabilizing and binding, astringent, blood tonic, diuretic (in Ayurveda), laxative, nutritive, carminative.

Traditional and modern indications for Rose include:

-kidney and bladder infections
-dysmenorrhea, amenorrhea, menorrhagia
-gout and rheumatism
-anxiety, depression
-various inflammations

In Ayurveda, Rose is also commonly added to formulations for treating skin problems (for its anti-Pitta properties), and for beautifying skin. In Western cosmetics, it is frequently employed as an anti-aging and nourishing component of the same. In Middle Eastern traditions and in India, Rose carries a spiritual connotation as a symbol of deep love, and is especially referenced in the Sufi and Bahai teachings. Its scent can be carried around the neck of the wearer to help induce deep states of meditation and devotion.

Examples of TCM patterns where Rose can be employed include: Spleen Qi Deficiency, Heart Qi Deficiency, Blood Deficiency, Kidney Yin and Yang Deficiencies, and Essence Deficiency. A well-known TCM formula that includes Rose and treats spermatorrhea is Jin Suo Gu Jing Wan.
