The Maya believe the spiritual is very much
a part of the physical health. The Shaman or Aki jab is consulted
to intervene for the sick and the troubled. There are more
auspicious days to ask for help with your work, your loved
ones, your health or your Karma.
Fire, colors, aromas are all part of the
Aki jab's methods. They open portals to allow the energies
of the Universe in to heal or to give abundance. Many still
use chickens as a form a blood sacrifice however, many no
longer use this method.
An Aki jab can read the Fire when he is blessing
you in fire ceremonies.
The local people of the Traditional medicine
cooperative are raising the medicinal plants that have been
used for centuries.
The temezcal (steam bath) is still used to
balance the hot-cold in the body. A system used by the ancient
maya back before Christ.
