about amchi kunga
Amchi Kunga Chodak, experienced practitioner of traditional Tibetan medicine, comes from a long and well respected lineage of amchis originating in Kham, the Eastern region of Tibet. (Amchi: the Tibetan word for doctor)
Although born in Tibet, Amchi Kunga was compelled to flee his homeland and escape to India, where during his many years as a monk, he studied Buddhist philosophy and astrology along with Tibetan medicine.
His extensive knowledge and training passed down from generation to generation, combined with his intense studies at the monastery, has earned him recognition with the Central Council of Tibetan Medicine, in Dharamsala. He has also traveled extensively throughout Asia and after leaving the monastery, presided over many clinics in the Dharamsala, Goa and Ladakh regions of India.
