Acupuncture in Dho-taraph

June 28, 2010

Treating Amchi Nyima. For the entire valley of Dho-taraph, there are only two amchi's currently. The other is Amchi Pema. Amchi Nyima's health has been in decline now since this past year and is currently unable to visit patients. Unfortunately this also means that it makes it this much more difficult for Amchi Pema to get to all the patients in the valley. For this reason, the patient load I had in Dho-taraph was quite heavy as some people had been waiting to see an amchi for quite some time.

Tashi, an entertaining fellow from Takshi. Most patients prefer it if you come to their home for treatment, which is usually quite nice as there is usually a lot of butter tea and conversation to be had before any work is actually done.
