💜We offer traditional temazcal (sweat lodge) every Saturday at 11 o’clock in the morning at Refugio Terraza De La Tierra.
The price per guest is 300 pesos. The fees will be charged, when you pay for your room or in the reception when you are visiting our place.
💜Temazcal comes from the term temazcalli in Nahuatl, ‘temaz’ meaning vapor and ‘calli’ house , so literally it is the house of vapor.
It is also referred to as the womb of Mother Earth.
Volcanic stones are heated up in a fire and brought into the temazcal, where an infusion of aromatic and medicinal herbs is poured over the hot stones, creating hot vapor.
The ceremony offers a space for you to enter in contact with the elements, to connect with yourself in the darkness, release toxins through activating your lymphatic system and access the transformative power rituals can bring to our lives.
Throughout Mesoamérica the temazcal was used for hygienic, ritualistic, therapeutic, and spiritual purposes, and in fact, throughout the whole world, indigenous cultures knew about the healing properties of sweating and used this ancient technique for curing a wide range of illnesses.
It is important that participants take good care of their hydration before and after entering the temazcal.
For people with cardiovascular problems it is not recommended.
