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.
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.
