This year's Sorig Tour stopped once again in Malho (chin. Sogzong) in the East Tibetan province of Amdo (chin. Quinghai) in August 2017 to provide free medical treatments according to Sowa Rigpa to the local inhabitants and nomads. The patients were able to receive acupuncture, dry and wet cupping, Moxibustion, Horme, Ku Nye massages and physiotherapy as well as tibetan and allopathic medications depending on their individual needs in the Henan Mongolian Autonomous County People's Hospital. Most of the patients were suffering from arthritis, skin disorders, allergies and gastritis due to their hard working conditions and heavy diets which mainly consist of spicy, oily and fried dishes as well as processed fast food. Some people even travelled for 2 - 3 days to receive consultations from Dr. Nida Chenagtsang and treatments of the Sorig group.
