The Healthcare section of Tibet Charity organized free massage camp at Namgyal Monastery for two days. The massage camp was overseen by Ms Izumi Egawa, a specialist masseur and therapist from Japan.
It may be mentioned here that Ms Egawa has trained our home nurses in clinical body massage therapy few years back. Since then our home nurses have been using this technique, with good effect, while dealing with elders with muscular pains. We have also organized camps for the general public once every year.
This year too we organized such camps for two days. 52 people came to receive massage therapy.
We are grateful to Ms Egawa for kindly taking part in the camps and helping the home nurses further polish their skill. We are also grateful to Ms Pema (her Tibetan name), a Danish licensed massage therapist who volunteered to join the camp. She specializes in carnal sacral therapy.
We wish to extend our thanks to Namgyal monastery for kindly allowing use one of their classrooms for the camp.
