This concise introduction presents all the essential information on Tibetan medicine.

It includes a chapter on case histories and provides information on what to expect from a practising physician. With a comprehensive resources section, this book provides everything there is to know about Tibetan medicine at an introductory level. This book will be of interest to anyone who wants to know more about Tibetan medicine, as well as anyone looking to find out more about Tibetan thought, traditional medicine, comparative religion or Eastern spirituality.
