“Plant medicine does not just improve symptoms; it approaches healing the whole of the body – as opposed to Western medicine, which may just approach the symptom”
Second day at the temple we start the day with a powerful vapor bath or sauna prepared by the maestro.
The vapor bath uses water boiled with more than ten powerful medicinal plants from the Peruvian Amazon.
This is a very important aspect for healing the emotional, spiritual, and physical levels to receive the full benefit from the sacred plant medicines.
For some illnesses, the vapor bath consists of the most important part of the treatment.
In the Shipibo tradition, one of the steps to do a dieta and start the healing is to do a plant bath. In our tradition is a vital component of the shamanic healing process to receive the love and wisdom of the plants is this way to become like them.
It helps you in cleansing heavy energies or blockages, clearing negative thoughts or emotions, and promoting transformation to a better self. It is a further cleanse that also has aromatherapeutic effects.
A plant bath consists of a bathe in water that has had certain plants soaking in it. The patients then refrain from bathing as they normally would in order to let the plants soak into their systems through their skin.
The “Shëyoti” is an ancient technique of the Shipibo Conibo people which consist in massaging key power points on your abdomen to remove all kinds of stressors, emotional toxins that have been present in your body since childhood, pain, blockages, or “Jakoma niwebo”(bad air or bad energy) from the body with other important shamanic tools like mapacho, agua Florida and mentol or any other amazonian oil.
We consider this a very important part of the healing process. Shipibo Onanyabo (curanderos) believes that some of the most common illnesses and traumas gets stuck in the center of our body (where our energy is) when something bad has impacted our lives this energy gets stuck in our bodies and a way to remove it is by realizing this powerful Shëyo (massage).
The “Rëpoti” is a powerful method made to clean the sinus and boost immunity against allergies. The Shipibo have been using this method for decades to prevent some illnesses, it is very common to give it especially to children for laziness, to active
the mind and give strength to the body.
