The six advantages of Tibetan steaming therapy
Unique effect
Tibetan herbal steam is popular because of its effectiveness. Herbal steam distributes medicine through skin, points and channels to directly reach the location of disease. The medicine works faster than the oral medicine.
Environmentally safe.
Taking medicine through skin” produces fewer side effects and less damage to liver, kidney or stomach. It relieves illness without the need to take bitter medicine. Because the steaming is happening in the surface of skin, the medicine concentrated in blood system is lower. The medicine stays in the points and channels of related disease so the damage to liver or kidney is minimized.

1.       Scientific theory
It increases body metabolism and blood circulation, wards away any evil Qi
but not harming the righteous Qi. It treats internal disease from outside in.  
  Channels and collaterals are invigorated. Sweating is induced but the nutritive and protective Qi stays unharmed.
2.       High efficiency
Any oral medicine will go through digestive system and not much will be left when the medicine reaches the disease site. But for the steaming therapy, medicine goes through skin’s blood vessel directly. The concentration of medicine is more effectively preserved, absorbed and utilized this way.

3. Strengthening kidney and bone
In Chinese medicine, “kidney governs bone and generates marrow”. That means the health of kidney and bone are closely related. Bone marrow is located deep in the body. Tibetan steaming therapy delivers herbal medicine through blood vessels under skin to maintain good health, nourish kidney and liver, regulate functions of liver and kidney, invigorate blood, remove stasis, dispel cold and transform dampness. Only strong kidney can nourish and generate bone marrow to produce strong bones.
