“I was pleasantly surprised to find this Tibetan KuNye massage course far exceeded my expectations of what an online class would entail. In addition to the well laid out format for “follow along ” hands on massage practice; Massage Around the World shared most respectfully a wonderful window into the Tibetan culture and medical healing traditions. I feel confident in the new massage techniques I have learned and excited to share new ways to maintain health and well-being with my clients and friends.” - Chameil Haney, NYS LMT.

“The course on KuNye Massage from Massage around the World was excellent!  The first half of the course teaches some underpinnings of Tibetan medicine, which provide an excellent frame of reference for the massage.  The second half of the course (the technique videos) are well done, in clear and replicable steps.  The corner inset illustrations and handouts are useful tools. I will be adding this modality to my practice. Well done!” - Brenda Baker, MA, BCBA, LMT, BCTMB.

“I really enjoyed the Tibetan KuNye massage course, it was very interesting and I learned a lot about its background. When I needed support throughout the course I got feedback fast, the supervisors are very kind and helpful. The step by step instructions for the massage itself are very clear and easy to follow. Thanks for this experience.” - Beatrice Kiessling, meditation instructor, massage and transpersonal therapist.
