The Tibetan Healing and Wellness Center (THWC) is the manifestation of Dr.
Jampa Yonten’s long cherished dream to establish a comprehensive holistic
healing and spiritual center. Dr. Yonten- an alumnus of Chagpori Tibetan Medical
Institute, Darjeeling-opened THWC in 2003 with blessings from his teacher, Dr.
Trogawa Rinpoche. After considering many cities in India in which to open
THWC, Dr. Yonten chose Bangalore for the many positive attributes the city
THWC could not begin in large scale as first envisioned by Dr. Yonten. The center opened with a simple consulting office and pharmacy. Since its humble beginnings, however, THWC has grown: it now serves and touches the lives of many people throughout the world by providing a wide range of holistic treatments that include counseling, pharmacy, traditional Tibetan massage (Kunye), cupping, hydrotherapy/Medicinal Baths, and golden needle therapy.
THWC feels the blessings of patients, students, friends and well-wishers. This support has provided continued motivation and inspiration to offer more services to all sentient beings.
