Why is it important to see a trained practitioner?
The application of Kambo requires skill, knowledge, experience, integrity, responsibility, mindfulness and a deep understanding of this powerful medicine. A trained Kambo practitioner will know where, how much and how to treat you, if at all and they will have been trained in techniques that enable them to assess this. If there is a problem, they will know how to deal with this but they are also trained to minimize the possibility of problems and never go beyond the limits of their ability.
During the Kambo treatment there is a transfer of energy from the practitioner to you. The trained practitioner will understand how this process works and how to ensure that only clean and positive energy is passed on to you. Always check out your practitioners’ credentials and if you’re not 100% happy with both then think twice before allowing them to give you Kambo.
Another important consideration is aesthetics. Trained practitioners will have learnt techniques to enable them to make the access points on the skin, known as gates, with the minimum of pain and scarring. They will also understand the different types of points that are suitable for different parts of the body.
Finally, with a wealth of knowledge and experience that is acquired during and after their training, a properly trained practitioner will enable you to make the most of Kambo medicine on a physical, spiritual, emotional and energetic level. Environment, ability to hold sacred space and hold boundaries, energy transfer, knowledge of anatomy, meridians, chakras, acupressure points, treatments protocols and a deep connection to the spirit of the medicine born of self-practice will all inform, and elevate your Kambo experience.
