The temazcal -which in Náhuatl means "house of hot stones"- is one of them. This traditional purification ceremony has been made since pre-Hispanic times and thanks to people who still have a strong bond with their roots and with the earth, we can still experience it today. The temazcal is a steam bath, with a certain resemblance to the sauna, but with a solid spiritual background and a great healing purpose.
Traditional temazcales are made in four stages, known as doors. Each one is shorter, but more intense, with higher heat and steam. In each stage, songs and prayers also increase in intensity, and sweat reaches a point of covering every millimeter of the body, as well as the sensation of purification does.
During the Spanish conquest, many temazcal structures were destroyed by the Spaniards. The native people, however, were able to hide some in hidden locations, helping to preserve the beautiful culture till this day.
In our time we use Temazcales to detach ourselves from the day to day activicities that can be draining or estressful.
