Fasting or treatment on behalf of health

They also offer their customers a curing juice into comfortable accommodation with daily monitoring of vital signs and weight. Each treatment is often punctuated by informative lectures on all aspects of fasting and vegetarian diet, as well as complementary services such as massage and colonic irrigation.

The temazcal

Welcome to the traditional Mexican steam bath called temazcal. Hot stones are carefully laid in the center of this mythical hut, to create an atmosphere conducive to sweating and meditation. Spirituality and purification of the soul and body are waiting for you. Formerly practiced by the Mayans and Aztecs in order to purify and better communicate with the spirits. The rounds of sweating are often four times, more and more intense heat and sometimes last for two hours. Sweating is the vehicle to get rid of toxins, and the hut, with its mysticism and folklore, became a place to externalize his concerns and wishes. This is assisted by the temazcal, a kind of shaman, to let go or, conversely, to choose the action. For some, it is a way of confusing spiritual energy with nature to the rhythm of chants and drums, while exotic scents fill the air.

Qigong at the service of energy and health

This ancient Chinese system of physical exercises is recognized to be practiced in a meditative state, inter alia, to reduce hypertension, increase strength, improve mental function and reduce stress. The benefits are not limited to the body, they also extend to the spiritual side by magnifying awareness and tapping the universal energy through respiration. When you coordinate your breathing with the movements, you start to generate “qi” or energy in your abdomen. Practice replicates this energy ten times, resulting in a significant reserve for subsequent needs.
