Origin of the Temazcal Tradition In the Nahuatl culture of central Mexico, the goddess of the sweat bath was Temazcalteci, "the grandmother of the baths". The cult of this goddess of the Temazcal extended throughout Mesoamerica and it is found in the other great cultures of the region, the Mixteca, the Zapoteca and the Maya.
This ritual ceremony was celebrated among indigenous cultures as a therapeutic cleansing in which the properties of fire and water are combined to purify the mind, body, and soul. A renewed interest in the ancient sweat bath, still called by the name given to by the Aztecs, the Temazcal. Once again to the healing practices preserved in traditional medicine are making inroads in the mainstream.
The Procedure Volcanic rock is heated on fire until red-hot in an igloo-type construction, where the participants gather. Aromatic oils and herbs are spread on the stones to create a curative vapor, heating the temazcal to even higher temperatures. The body may reach a temperature of 104° F (40° C) during the temazcal, so make sure you will drink enough water throughout your visit and afterwards.
It is very important that alcohol and drugs should NOT be consumed on the day of the Temazcal.
