An indigenous healing art called Temazcal cleansing is practiced in Mexico and includes prehistoric treatments such as agave-tequila, Mayan mud and cacti. Using the four elements (earth, fire, air and water) the treatments are done in a round, earthen structure. It is designed like a “womb” to create a atmosphere of darkness and safety. This cleansing ritual is said to bring healing and purification to the body, mind and spirit. Try it at the fine spas of Mexico and prepare to feel brand new.
