What is Temazcal?
The Temazcal is an area known as the "sweat house", but within the tradition is regarded as "the house of healing."
The Maya called this space Zintunche. It is to heat with wood to volcanic rock returned to its original state, almost liquid, so that it is deposited on a cooking of medicinal and aromatic herbs. This produces steam that makes skin sweat, relax and detoxify the body, cleans the airways and tones the nervous system.
It is important to understand that the Temazcal is more than just a steam bath which helps us to improve the functioning of the body. The Temazcal is a space where you interact with the elemental forces of nature, therefore, entering it, we contact with the five basic elements that sustain life: wind, water, earth, fire and ether. This enables our essence together in a state of complete harmony with creation itself.
There are two types
Temazcal Ritual: An ancient ceremony of the oldest there to get in touch with the essence of the elements: earth, wind, water, fire and ether, the same that allow the life of our sister plants that give us their medicine , its aromas and its presence.
Sitting around the navel (Center Temazcal) unites us as children of the same earth that shelters us, because we all come from Earth and return to it. It is a place where there are no longer economic positions, qualifications, knowledge and energy belongings as they were divided equally involved with the same intensity.
In the ritualistic, we address each of the directions for cosmic manifesting the presence of the guardian and we will give your value or axiom, therefore, we ask that the East through Quetzalcoatl is given us wisdom in the West Xipe Totec ask that gives us the ability to love and receive love with humility, to ask the North Yayauhqui Tezcatlipoca is given us the intelligence to see ourselves in the mirror; South Huitzilopochtli called to assist us in developing our and a desire to the divine will into the will; Up in the sky ask the omnipresent, the creator of all that exists, the one by whom we live life and give us energy to continue on the road, and finally call the Center to our beloved and venerable Mother Earth and ask forgiveness for all the damage you do and thank the living and the food that reaches your mouth.
Therapeutic Temazcal: in the therapist is to relax and detoxify the body, stimulates the lymphatic system, tones the skin, calms the mind and leads to a state of inner tranquility.
It is a procedure used by Mexican traditional medicine which helps to dispose of toxins and to a temperature greater than 40 degrees centigrade the skin becomes a third kidney, releasing toxins, exfoliates and stimulates the renewal of the surface layer of the same and promotes the formation of the acid mantle, which is so important in the protection of skin infections.
It has now been extended the benefit offered by the Temazcal to rheumatic diseases, arthritis, liver, nervous system, digestive problems, poor circulation, bronchial and lung problems as well as glandular disorders such as goiter. Because of their healing appears to be the most effective way to stimulate our internal organs, cleanse our body and take a large amount of toxins accumulated by drug, by a wrong diet and the high pollution that harms our environment now and hence our bodies. It works like a washing blood to cleanse the blood of impurities, stimulating sudorific glands, circulatory system and improving cardiovascular defects naturally. In fifty minutes of bath is eliminated one liter of sweat equivalent to a kilo of toxins, this amount is more or less than one day of work of the kidneys.
Sak Beh in Yucatan Maya translated means "White Way" and it is recorded that the roads were reported to the various temples that we know today as "Archaeological Zones." However, the SAK bEH is just a move made of white powder; mystically refers to the "Way of the Spirit" and to pass that man must travel to integrate harmoniously with everything around it. Beh Sak is the path that unites heaven with earth and the sun is who guide each of our steps towards the ultimate goal of life: "happiness”.
In Sak Beh we propose spaces and activities that allow you to discover your own "White Way". Through workshops, courses and activities we invite you to complement each of the steps you take in life.
