DESCRIPTION

A temazcal is a Prehispanic ritual steam bath that is half physical experience and half spiritual experience. These sweat lodges were used by the ancient Maya as a curative ceremony to purify the mind, body and spirit. Today the same holds true.

The setting for the temazcal is in a lush jungle location in Cancun where you will have a temazcal guide who handles the ritual. First off you will experience an ancient campfire ritual where you will be blessed by a Mayan shaman.

Next you will enter the temazcal bath which is circular dome that is enclosed except for an exit that is covered with a curtain. Inside the dome it is dark. You will sit in a circle and in the middle there is a hole where hot rocks are placed. The Shaman will pour water that contains medicinal herbs and incense of fruit on the rocks which will turn to vapor. Inside the bath your senses will be stimulated via aromatherapy, ancient songs and drums. The session is sixty minutes long and you will sweat like never before. The experience is intense and you can step out of the temazcal at any time. Next you can shower in the outdoor shower or jump in  a pool to cool off. The combination of hot to cold is exilirating. Afterwards your guide will apply a mud mask and you can relax in the hammocks in the jungle.

The temazcal experience varies depending on the individual. The most common description is of an amplified state of consciousness. Others report feeling incredible sensation of relaxation.

If you are searching for clarity of thought or to melt your stress away then you should consider this unique experience. If you want to get a natural high then you should give this one a try you will not regret it.
