Prayer to Father of Sowa Rigpa, the Traditional Medicine system of the himalayan regions of India, Bhutan, Nepal, Tibet, Buryatia, Siberia, and Mongolia
We offer a traditional approach to wellness consultation through adherence to the traditional system of Sowa Rigpa (translated as Science of Healing"). Sowa Rigpa(Traditional Tibetan Medicine), is recognized by the WHO as a bonafide and effective traditional healing art, and is more than 1,000 years old in its current form though it traces its roots of diagnostic techniques, medicines and therapies back thousands of years before that, being influenced by the folk traditions of the early Bon people of Tibet and Mongolia, Chinese Medicine, Unani(Greek Medicine), Siddha Medicine(indigenous healing system from South India) and Ayurveda. It utilizes dietary and lifestyle advice, with internal and external therapies and remedies. It is a holistic system specifically oriented for both body and mind.
"Gunasilan appeared to be a smart and compassionate person. Hence I trusted in his ability to treat my condition. I was suffering from diarrhea, light headedness and a mild trembling sensation. There was no obvious cause from modern medicine's perspective. He fixed this through Tibetan medicine, massage and acupuncture. Also I was so impressed by these treatments that now I am myself studying Tibetan medicine. He has also helped cure a viral cold, a strep throat and my wife's laryngitis. These things could not have been fixed so rapidly with Western medicine. I have no doubt that Gunasilan could help cure many illnesses that modern medicine cannot. Also, he is open to using Tibetan medicine as a complementary treatment in conjunction with western medicine or indeed any other therapy."

"I came to Gunasilan with skin rash and chronic digestive complaints. He gave me a thorough examination and I followed his suggestions and used the traditional remedies. After that first day of seeing him, my problem disappeared and never returned."

"I went to see Gunasilan after I had experienced digestive problems for about half a year. I had made major lifestyle changes, including changes in my diet. These changes however, resulted in an imbalanced digestion, and I was suffering from diarrhea for about 6 months, lost a lot of weight, and experienced pain and pressure in my lower bowel area. I had been to several western allopathic medical doctors, done colonoscopy and had investigations for allergies. But no one could find anything. After seeing Gunasilan, I have never experienced these problems again, my digestion stabilized and the pressure and pain in my bowels disappeared. He is very skilled and carries a lot of knowledge and Wisdom. I have trust for him, he is easy to talk with and be transparent with.

Gunasilan studied at University level as a Biology major in the early 1990's for almost 4 years. Being discontent with the curriculum, he continued studying at the University for several more years, though it was always with the focus from many different healing modalities that he studied. In the late 1990's he began practicing UL Craniosacral therapy, and deepened his knowledge of Ayurveda working as a yoga teacher and therapist at the Growing Edge in Big Sur, CA. He first visited India, China, Nepal and Tibet in 1991. He received certificate of 500 hour study from National Institute of Ayurvedic Medicine in 1998, and studied Pancha Karma under Dr Vishundas Kannan of Kerala, India in 2004. In 2010 he began his formal studies in Sowa Rigpa and immediately began replacing many Naturopathic approaches he was utilizing in his clinics, with the traditional remedial measures of Sowa Rigpa. In the summers of 2013 and 2014 Gunasilan studied and practiced external therapies of Sowa Rigpa in Amdo, Tibet at a famous all Sowa Rigpa Hospital in Malo, under the direction of his primary teacher Dr. Nida Chenagtsang. His thorough knowledge of various modern alternative healing modalities allows him to understand his clients' journeys of healing and wellness, and offer them practical advice accordingly.
After almost two decades of study in both modern alternative healing, and indigenous healing arts, Gunasilan decided to focus his studies in Sowa Rigpa. Why?
More than 1,000 years ago, Sowa Rigpa, known as the "Sages Medicine System", fused the best of the indigenous medicine systems in Europe, the Middle East and Asia at a time when they were strong and in tact:
*Unani , an ancient Greek and Persian medicine system originating through ancient Egypt, *Chinese Medicine,*Siddha Medicine of the ancient southern Indian Dravidian Culture, *Ayurveda, from ancient Vedic India and the folk healing traditions of the Tibetan plateau.
Refined over many generations through powerful spiritual masters of medicine and yoga, Sowa Rigpa became an effective holistic system for both body and mind. Utilizing dietary and lifestyle recommendations, complex purifications of plants and minerals compounded in highly specialized processes, as well as a variety of external therapies to balance body energy, and restore physical and psychological balance, Sowa Rigpa integrates the best of ancient traditions and delivers efficient results.['/o
