Ku Nye Massage
Ku Nye is a massage technique originated in the Himalayan region more than 3900 years ago, that remains completely preserved to our days. Its main objectives are the prevention and the cure of illness. Kunye Massage includes techniques such as applying herbal-infused oils to the body, manual tissue manipulation, deep tissue work, identifying and acting on specific points, mobilizing the joints and warming the body.  It also includes gentle external therapies such as hot and cold compresses, herbal poultices and application of heated oils.Credits
