Published in August 2012 by University of California Press, “Healing Elements” by Sienna Craig explores how Tibetan medicine circulates through diverse settings in Nepal, China, and beyond as commercial goods and gifts, and as target therapies and panacea for biophysical and psychosocial ills.
Sienna Craig is an Assistant Professor of Anthropology at Dartmouth College. She is the author of “Horses Like Lightning: A Story of Passage Through the Himalaya” and co-editor of “Medicine Between Science and Religion: Explorations on Tibetan Grounds”.
