Kambo is new to the West. While the corpus of case studies is growing rapidly, it has not been subjected to the multi-million pound clinical trials required for government-approved pharmaceuticals.
Our Kambo practice derives directly from the Amazonian tradition, carefully evolved to include safeguards and precautions necessary for Western applications. While our connection to the Frog alerts us to potential problems, we operate according to protocol specifically designed for Western applications, developed by the International Association of Kambo Practitioners.
Your very first Kambo treatment comprises a single point, to test your reaction to the medicine. It is rare, but it does happen that a person experiences an adverse reaction. The test point is immediately removed, allowing full recovery from this minimal application.
Contact us if you have any questions or concerns!
If we get green light from the test point, we will apply a further two points, constituting a Basic Treatment. Traditionally the three points are applied on the upper left arm for men and the lower right leg for women. Generally speaking, the medicine is more intense the closer it is applied to the heart.
In certain cases the number of points may vary slightly.
Ayurvedic science identifies 3 central channels or nadis through which life force (kundalini/prana/chi) flows:
The 7 chakras are where these channels intersect. Exclusively developed by the IAKP, a Chakra Treatment targets a particular chakra, stimulating the flow of energy and removing physical and emotional blocks.
The chakras are treated by applying Kambo points to the respective area of the spine. The number of points depends principally on your treatment history.
NB The crown chakra cannot be treated with Kambo.
Traditional Chinese Medicine identifies 12 energetic channels through which chi (life force) flows, regulated by the vital organs:
Specific vital organs can be treated by applying Kambo to nodes on these meridians, as in acupuncture. The number of points depends principally on your treatment history.
In accordance with IAKP protocols, we offer a number of advanced treatments for acute, chronic or challenging conditions. Typically these involve a period of intensive treatment with regular follow-ups. Contact us about this.
