Traditional Mexican Sauna
A temazcal is an ancient ritual that takes place in an igloo shaped sweat lodge.
Our neighbour Enedino, his wife Hortencia and his brother Vicente built our temazcal using mostly bamboo and clay, they designed it to cleanse the body and mind of impurities.
Medicinal plants and herbs from the mountain are used in the temazcal that can help with an array of health issues such as, anxiety, inflammation, head aches, muscle pains of all sorts, indigestion issues, arthritis, respiratory problems, relieving flu symptoms or even just for detoxifying the body.
Some examples of the plants used in the ritual include lemon grass, cinnamon, mango leaves, guava leaves, bamboo, white sage bush, rosemary, vicks plant and many more.
Enedino and his family have been practicing temazcal rituals their whole lives. They use specific rocks that they heat up on the fire for 2-3 hours until they are red hot. With the medicinal plants they recollect they make tea which they also use for creating steam with the hot rocks.
For the best results, they recommend to do 3-7 sessions in a row (one per day), however you can notice positive results after just one session.
Sessions are private (for guests only) and take approx 90 mins.
