Our Temazcalli was built as a gift to us from Nahuatl elder, Sun dancer, master builder, healer and family friend Piltzinkoyotl. The name Temazcalli translates meaning “house of the steam stones”. The tradition of using heat as a healing modality can be found in various African natural healing traditions as well. The Islamic Hammam and South African Sifutu hold similar uses ie; ceremony, healing the sick, improving health, and as a place for women to give birth.
Our traditional, ritual and medicinal uses for it are Both Nahuatl, African and Babalayan inspired. We have structured its use to meet the current needs of the people that we service. Such uses include; Yoni and Prostrate Steams, Cancer & Lymphatic Massage, Pain Relief, Conflict Resolution, Detoxification, Post Partum Ritual & Healing for Mothers and general health & wellness. We also work to support our community desiring to confront intergenerational trauma, soul fragmentation, addictions and are working to maintain sobriety.
