The Sorig Institute is a school of Traditional Tibetan Medicine. Founded under the guidance of Dr. Nida Chenagtsang, the Sorig Institute offers certification in Ku Nye Massage and Traditional Tibetan Medicine (TTM). 'Sorig' is the actual name of Tibetan Medicine, a combination of the words 'Sowa,' translated as 'healing' or 'nurturing', and 'Rigpa,' or 'awareness.' It is with the guiding principle of 'Healing Awareness' that we promote the lineage of Tibetan Medicine in the West. The Sorig Institute is the North American branch of the International Academy of Traditional Tibetan Medicine (IATTM). We are also allied with the Ngak Mang Institute, an organization dedicated to the preservation of Tibetan Yogic life and culture. Both organizations are led by Dr. Nida Chenagtsang.
We, at the Sorig Institute, are fortunate to be able to share this timeless knowledge. With profound respect for the traditions of Tibetan Medicine, we invite you to join our ever growing body of information and people dedicated to the preservation of this ancient art form.
