GET TO KNOW WHAT A A TEMAZCAL IS
THE TEMAZCAL: SACRED BATH TO AWAKE OUR CONSCIOUSNESS
The sweat lodge, temazcal or inipi is a powerful ancestral therapy of connection with the elements of nature: earth, water, fire and air, that also inhabit within us.
NEW MOON TEMAZCAL
GROUP AFTER TEMAZCAL
It is one of the most comprehensive integrative holistic therapies that exist, with great benefits at a physiological, emotional and spiritual level. Depending on the geographical area and the traditions of each town, the ways in which the ceremony takes place and the materials with which they are built vary. However, all agree that it is a great natural medicine for the awakening of our CONSCIOUSNESS and for the recovery of ancestral memory.
At the physical level, the Temazcal stimulates the lymphatic system, helps eliminate toxins, as when the temperature rises above 40 degrees Celsius, the skin becomes a third kidney. The high temperature to which we expose ourselves with the temazcal propitiates the body to sweat, the humidity does not allow the sweat to evaporate, so the self-regulation system of the body (sympathetic and parasympathetic system) responds, (homeostasis) accelerates circulation and we sweat even more, eliminating toxins as much as possible.
In addition, it cleanses the respiratory tract, the digestive system, give tone to the nervous and circulatory system, helps in bone, muscle and gynecological problems.
The temazcal symbolizes the maternal womb, allowing us to recreate the moment of conception and gestation, time of which we keep on occasion, memories that cause us some emotional and psycho-social blockage in our adult life. Reviving this moment allows us to observe, liberate and heal various self-limiting programs or beliefs. It is an excellent way of balancing our emotions and to transport us to a state of peace and inner tranquility quieting the mind.
The high presence of negative ions exerts reactions in the body causing the aura (electromagnetic bio-structuring pattern) to expand, manifesting radiant in all body functions including those of the brain. The aura is the one who directed the construction of the body in which we live and who keeps it functioning, the practice of temazcal therapy allows and enables this auric intelligence to regenerate the body.

SOME THERAPEUTIC USES
The skin is like a third kidney through which we can eliminate accumulated toxins. In many cases, people that live in polluted environments have their skin pores blocked; these are activated again by the Sweatlodge due to the high temperature. Skin is really soft after a Sweatlodge! The restoration of skin is stimulated and it helps the superficial part of it to fall off, activating at the same time the formation of the acid covering, which is very important in order to protect from skin infections.
Sweatlodges are used in Central America and in a numerous Indian communities in order to treat problems as coughs, asthma, sinusitis, bronquitis, and above all for children and the elderly. While the temperature is raising and combining the steam with the aroma of medicinal plants, the respiratory system opens up. In general it receives more oxygen, 5 to 7 times more than in normal conditions, which means there is more blood flood. Lungs will expand and throw out accumulated toxins.
In the Sweatlodge there will be a rising of the blood circulation. The blood vessels will expand in a wonderful way, helping to expel toxins from the body and eliminate uric acid and cholesterol. It’s really helpful in treating health problems related to the circulatory system.
During the Sweatlodge the body will be relaxed and stimulated, so it helps to treat problems such as stress, nervous strain and insomnia. It also acts on the psychological system, as we are taking time to think about our life, our mistakes and our success.
Other therapeutic uses:
Assists the digestive system as intestinal activity will be aided. It helps the muscular system as well. It helps with sprains,strains, bruises, and inflammations. In the sweatlodge we eliminate liquids and grease, thus helping also with losing weight.
Labor and after labor:
In different states of Mexico and Center America,Temazcal was used by pregnant women as a preventive and healing medicine and during the labor. In the Temazcal the uterus expands and the labor is a lot easier.
