Mexican Traditional Healing

There is a wide variety of practices in Mexican Traditional Healing. Here I have listed several of the main ones to give you a flavour of the 'medicine'


Diagnostic Massage (Tlahuayo) - a deep massage which 
b
rings to light any areas of the body that are out of balance. 
At the same time the massage works to realign the skeleton, the organs, muscles and tissues. It is useful in treating the majority of physical and emotional conditions, as well as bringing a greater understanding of the spirit

Cleansing (Limpia) - a colourful and energising process using flowers, herbs, candles, many tools - to uplift, lighten the soul, and to assist in discharging physical symptoms. 

Spirit Retrieval (Susto treatment) - a ceremony to call the spirit back into the body following shock, trauma, or chronic conditions.


A session of Mexican healing can last up to two hours, including time for platica (talking) and grounding afterwards. Depending on your situation, I may recommend three treatments in a row, or a session with a follow-up after 20 days. The practice is highly flexible and applicable to most types of imbalance, as there is usually a way of working, whatever the severity of the illness. 

Temazcal (Sweat Lodge) - ceremonies that connect us with the earth and the elements, for celebration 
and healing, building trust with others in a beautiful and sacred space.


Philosophy - the healing practices are part of a wider philosophy, with other branches being dance, ethics, understanding consciousness, the counting of time (tonal maxiotl, the calendar)... it is a very rich tradition and I feel deep gratitude for having been privileged to study and share in it.
