Product Description

This course is exclusive to Face The World - we aim to reintroduce the lost art of hand massage to the therapist's repertoire! A good hand massage will help tremendously to de-stress your client, open energy channels and create a feeling of well being. It's also a perfect treatment to therapy swap - read all about essential therapist self-help in hand care here.

About Tibetan Massage – Ku Nye

Pronouned “Coon-Yee”, in its most simple terms means Ku – to apply oil and Nye - to massage. This wonderful, ancient massage has taken place throughout the Himalayan region and Tibet for thousands of years and draws on Indian, Chinese and Persian wisdom as well as its own traditions. As with many Eastern massage treatments, it uses an holistic approach in viewing the body as a whole – and balancing energy flow and life-force as well as physical benefits. Tibetan Medicine believes that we are made up of five basic elements: earth, water, fire, wind and space. It is the wind element that is the focus of Ku Nye.

The hands-on techniques applied in Tibetan massage are surprisingly similar to those used in Western methods! Such methods include rubbing, kneading, stroking and stimulation of acupressure points. The oil/medium used in the massage treatment not only provides slip for the therapist, but binds the wind element in place and brings it into balance. 

  • The course is accredited with The Beauty and Holistic Guilds and carries 7 CPD units - and comes with the relevant Face The World (unique and license-free) music MP3 file and a full-sized, professional duo of exclusive FTW Massage Creme and Toner Concentrate. 
  • No prerequisite training is needed - beginners also welcome - you will receive a Certificate of Attendance rather than the insurable CPD Diploma for existing/insured therapists. We can upgrade your Certificate to Diploma (no cost) should you go on to become a professional therapist.

Added Benefits of Traditional Tibetan Music

The CD you will be provided with as part of this course is in itself, highly therapeutic. Created just for Face The World, it incorporates Tibetan chimes, singing bowls and the unmistakable sounds of Tibetan monks chanting.

  • Tibetan chimes (Ting-sha) have been used in prayer and religious rituals for as long as the Tibetan Monasteries have existed. The pure tones are said to cleanse the air and banish negative frequencies – energising Chi and readying the environment for prayer, mediation and healing.
  • Singing Bowls produce sound waves with frequencies that resonate and enable the theta state of the brain as well as restore a healthy vibrational state of the body, mind and spirit. Theta brainwaves induce the state of deep meditation and relaxation that is also said to enhance intuition, creative thinking and promote healing from disorders such as stress, anxiety, depression and insomnia.
  • A Buddhist Chant or “deep voice” chanting is incredibly hard to master. The phaynx or false vocal chords are controlled in such a way as to create a second or even third/fourth overtone to be amplified at the same time as the first note. This is reputed to be a multidimensional waveform which operates on several levels of the body and mind. This sound is said to be in synch with the creative force of the Universe, in Hindu known as AUM (Om), which was the sound that initiated creation.

Our bespoke music, therefore, is a perfect and authentic companion to enhance the overall experience and benefits for the client.

  1. Who knew - powerful treatment!

    Posted by Anna - Take Care of U on 8th Oct 2018

    Loved the training for this treatment; Julia was a great tutor and happy to share her knowledge. The treatment is amazing to give and receive, it has quickly become one of my most popular treatments and has surprised many clients at just how relaxing it is. Music which accompanies it is truly relaxing and combined with the aromas of the crème - a wonderful experience.

  2. Very worthwhile course.

    Hand massage is vastly under rated, this course really teaches you some great movements for the hand and arm. Every therapist should consider adding an extended hand massage to their facial treatment!
