Holistic Maya Treatments

Riviera Maya is the perfect place to experiment some prehispanic spiritual treatment. Temazcal is one of them. The most ancient mayan tradition for cleansing body, mind and spirit. It comes from the nahuatl temazcalli which means "house of heat". In ancient Mesoamerica, this sweat lodge was used as part of a curative ceremony thought to purify the body after exertion such as a battle or a ceremonial ball game, but also for restoring or improving health and to help women giving birth.

It is usually a permanent structure, a circular dome constructed from volcanic rock and cement. In Mayan symbolism, it represents the womb and the ceremony a way to reborn purified. Rituals are performed by a ceremonial priest who purifies and consecrates it with smoke from burning resin of the copal tree. Then he places volcanic stones in a pit in the center or near a wall of the temazcal. They are heated in a ritual fire and represent ancient sages: sprinkled with herbal teas, they produce clouds of steam which aim is to restore the mind and spirit.
