An Ancient Indeginous Sweat Lodge

During a ceremony, participants will enter the Sweat Lodge (an igloo-shaped hut) and will sit around hot stones heated in a fire before the ceremony begins. Once inside, water is poured over the rocks to produce steam. Herbs like sage or copal are used and added to help aid in the cleansing process.

Temezcal Ceremonies are great for flushing out toxins, clearing skin, helping support weight loss, aids in blood flow, releases mental burdens, and lastly helps decrease risk of dementia and alzheimer's. We highly recommend this ceremony for those of you looking for a Spiritual experience and a physical detox.
