what happens during Kambo ceremony?

A private session lasts about 3 hours while a typical Kambo group ceremony might be 4 - 5 hours long. Kambo is a very physical experience and is applied to the skin after small superficial burns are made with a red-hot ember incense stick.  Only the top layer of the skin is gently burned to allow Kambo enter directly into the Lymphatic System which is the key system to purifying the body. 

The number of points/burns/gates used depends on the number of times that the person has already received Kambo, the reason for the application, physical condition, and overall assessment by the practitioner based on their knowledge.  The minimum amount of gates is 3 and maximum is 9 for the first session. 

Before Kambo dots applied to the skin a client will have to drink a soup made out of cassava within 10-20 minutes, once Kambo is applied a feeling of warmth immediately follows. The face, skin, and core of the body will feel the heat within along with an increased heart rate. Some people experience ringing in the ears, pulsation in the head, tingling sensation, shivers and dizziness. After a few minutes or more, you may feel like you are ready to purge. After around 20-minutes, the Kambo points will be removed from your body and you can rest. 


During the rest you will feel that the mind is quiet,  clear and focused and you might receive some specific messages or have insights. Many people report feeling very peaceful and light immediately after receiving Kambo and often the next day one feels amazing.

After some rest and a cup of herbal tea you'll be offer to experience two more beautiful Amazonian medicines : Hapé/Rapé and Sananga. 

And before you leave you will be served delicious nutritious soup and given an after care guidance as well as integration suggestions.
