Kambo Layered Technique
When I serve a newcomer to Kambo, I begin with a layered treatment. I have found this gentler approach works best for those receiving this powerful medicine for the first time. In a standard treatment, I apply kambo to all the points on the skin at once. In a layered treatment, I apply the medicine to the points in stages, allowing some time in between. Your body will receive the same amount of medicine as it would a full treatment.
In a layered treatment, I apply one point at a time and titrate up, adding point by point, about every five minutes until an upward purge is experienced. With a layered treatment, you can better observe and understand the process more clearly as the medicine moves throughout the body and psyche. Softly it unfolds and peels back the layers of deep trauma within the body and psyche, a more feminine approach.
The layered treatment also helps me to determine how much medicine is needed for your session. Everyone and every session is unique. An individual’s body can only absorb a certain amount of kambo. By starting out with a layered treatment, this method assures this precious medicine is not wasted, allows your body to acclimate through titration, and helps you stay more present so you can better understand the numerous gifts of kambo!
