Temazcal: traditional functional medicine and ancient well-being
Step into a healing journey that’s all about you, your needs, and the wonders of nature. Detox, strengthen your body, let all worries go, and feel better than ever.
A walk through the Temazcal
You may already know the Temazcal as an ancient, native Mexican holistic technique similar to a sweat lodge – a cabin designed to detox your body through heat, sweat, and the use of sweet, aromatic medicinal herbs that offers the both of both worlds: a precise therapeutic method that stimulates the body, strengthens the immune system, and heals your aches, as well as a deep, meaningful effect on your psyche and soul.
A true feat of functional medicine that mixes ancient tradition with high performance.
Before beginning your journey, you will be welcomed with a warm cup of tea, a carefully blended infusion to relax and hydrate your body prior to the session. Your guide will ease you into the experience by cleansing you of stress using incense, and after changing into your comfortable Temazcal clothes, you will ask the seven trails of the universe permission to enter the sweat lodge – North, South, East, West, the Sky, the Earth, and the Fire will be watching over you and accompanying everyone there.
Once inside, the session begins by chanting together and directing energy to your goals and intentions. The Temazcal is the perfect scenario for all kinds of healing journeys, as the heat and steam prompt your body to cleanse itself, relieving muscular pain and opening the airways, while the atmosphere and calming nature invite introspection and peace of mind.
Throughout the sessions, the Calpitem, your guide, will request for the fire-heated stones to be brought inside in different stages, and as the purifying steam made of all kinds of medicinal herbs fills the sweat lodge, you will breathe in comfort, and exhale a different ailment each time.
As the session slowly but surely comes to an end, you will already feel better and lighter.
Finally, to end on the highest note and let your body relax, enjoy a cool-down session with another cup of tea and a wet sheet coverin you from head to toe. Feel well-rested, deeply sated with a delicious healthy-snack, and fully in sync with your inner world.
