Chogkhang Tibetan Medicine Centre was established on 5th March 2002. At the beginning, it managed to operate a small one room clinic due to financial constraint. There was no room for the patients and during monsoon, the patients has to suffer a lot from heavy rainfall. However, the clinic continued to work in a small congested room and ultimately we are happy that it proved to be effective for the local and general public.

In September 2004, the clinic shifted to Rakkar in Sidhbari to a better structure and capacity. It was here that we could expand our facility and accommodate additional staff. Presently, we offer health care services including consultation and treatments to all the local and other patients irrespective of their nationality. Chronic health problems such as chronic digestive disorders, nerve related disorders, skin problems, arthritis, blood pressure and a range of psychological disorders are taken care of. The treatment comprises of prescribing powdered medicines, decoctions, pastes, pills etc. In addition to these, external therapies such as moxibustion, cauterization, massage, compress therapy, cupping therapy, golden needle therapy, golden hammer therapy and hot oil compress therapy (Hormae) are also given based on nature of the disorder.
