The Dalai Lama and 100,000 Tibetans fled Tibet in 1959 following an uprising in the capital of Lhasa against occupational forces from China. Over a period of nearly 30 years these Tibetan refugees re-settled and organized themselves into a new Government-in-Exile and into communities in India and Nepal. The refugee community continue to make traditional products today. Therapeutic bracelets made of interwoven metals including copper, brass, nickel and zinc are believed to have healing properties that can also balance inner energies. For centuries, these types of bracelets have been worn with the belief that they can help alleviate the symptoms of arthritis, tendonitis, and carpal tunnel syndrome, as well as to promote healthy blood flow and circulation. Their attractive appearance and easy adjustability make them the perfect therapeutic accessory. Each bracelet is uniquely handmade by skilled crafts people in Nepal according to traditional methods handed down from multiple generations of family artisans. Assorted metal wires are cut to length, braided or twisted together in select patterns, and then hammered into ingenious and attractive designs that are fixed onto a copper sleeve. Designs are inspired by elements of traditional Tibetan culture that include precious dZi stones, Buddhist blessing cords and unique Tibetan-style hair braids. Traditional Tibetan singing bowls or chakra bowls produce beautiful and healing, sounds. Some use the bowls for balancing and relaxation and seek to activate or balance the body’s chakras.
