Kambo or also known as “Sapo” or “Vacina da Floresta” is a secretion from the Giant Monkey Tree Frog, scientific name Phyllomedusa bicolor. It lives in the Amazon rain forest where the frog secretion is collected by the Indigenous tribes on a small bamboo stick, then dried and wrapped in corn leaf.

The Kambo we use is 100% ethically and sustainably harvested from reputable sources directly from the tribes with great care and skill. The frog is always unharmed during the extraction process. It is considered extremely bad form by the indigenous people to harm the frog in any way, as they believe it could offend the animal spirits of the jungle, and bring about misfortune. Kambo is completely legal worldwide, apart from Brazil where it is forbidden to advertise/market Kambo in order to restrict biopiracy.


The use of Kambo differs amongst tribes but the main indigenous uses revolve around lifting Panema – when nothing goes right and nothing is good. Panema can be thought of as bad luck, depression, laziness, sadness, irritation, or negative/dark energetic influences, which attract difficulties and disease. They believe it helps their speed and energy during hunting. There are also many other ways they use it, as a vaccine to ward off illness, including: snake bites, fevers, infections, fertility problems, boost the immune system, increase energy, stamina, reduce pain, to cleanse, detox and strengthen the body, mind, and spirit.

Kambo has been the subject of almost three decades of medical research. This resin has been found to contain numerous bio-active peptides, which aid in deep healing and cleansing for many various ailments and conditions. Researchers believe these peptides cover a wide range of potential uses for Chronic Illness, Fatigue, Pain, Cancer, HIV, Hepatitis, Diabetes, Parkinson’s Disease, Alzheimer’s, Depression, Anxiety, Vascular Problems, Arthritis, Addictions to pharmaceuticals/street drugs, Migraines, Fertility Issues and many others. Recent studies have shown that Kambo contains multiple antimicrobial peptides effective against drug resistant strains of bacteria, fungi, protozoa, parasites and virus, providing opportunities for the development of new and more efficient nanotechnological-based therapies for treating infectious diseases.

Kambo is one of the strongest natural anti-inflammatory, antibiotic, antimicrobial and anesthetic substances found in the world and one of the strongest, natural ways to strengthen the immune system. It also detoxes the liver and the intestines so it’s a powerful cleanser. Immediate and short term effects include enhanced mood, alertness, clarity, focus, energy and increased resistance to stress, tiredness, hunger and thirst. Kambo empowers the immune system, rousing the body’s defense systems to their natural functions so that existing health problems are improved or resolved and future ones are less likely to occur.

Although western research continues to examine Kambo for potential medical uses, native peoples have known for centuries that substance offers many gifts to those that use it. This cleansing process works on a physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual level clearing our energy field. The frog connects us with our true selves. Showing us our negative habits, what we should avoid and what we could do in order to improve ourselves so we can break through these blockages and release these patterns so we can live in a more harmonious and authentic way. Kambô helps us to effortlessly unfold theses changes that we need to make, enabling us to live and think in our natural alignment. It establishes a spiritual management check in our lives, a ‘chakra realignment’, a psychological reorganization, from which the person changes their attitude, future health, and life.

Meridian and Auricular Point Placement

Rooted in traditional Chinese medicine, meridians function as energy pathways through the body. Each energetic channel relates to an organ, system, function and emotional issue in the body. The ear, considered to be a microcosm of the body, contains acupuncture points corresponding to different organs, systems and emotions as well.


Chakras are powerful energy centers of our body. Our system comprises of 7 principal energy centers aligned along the spinal column that distributes Prana (life energy) throughout the body. If energy is imbalanced in one or more of these chakras, that area manifests as a struggle in life:

7. Crown – Our ability to be fully connected spiritually.
6. Third Eye – Our ability to focus on and see the big picture.
5. Throat – Our ability to communicate.
4. Heart – Our ability to give and receive love.
3. Solar Plexus – Our ability to be confident and in-control of our lives.

The Kambo secretion contains a complex mixture of peptides and other bioactive  compounds that are believed to have various effects.

Some of the peptides found in Kambo and their potential functions, uses, and benefits include:



This peptide acts as a strong stimulant of the adrenal cortex and pituitary gland, potentially affecting hormone levels and stress response. It may also have analgesic properties.



This peptide has been found to interact with the nervous system and stimulate the release of neurotransmitters. It might play a role in pain relief and could have potential applications in pain management.



This peptide has vasodilatory effects, meaning it could widen blood vessels and potentially affect blood pressure regulation.



Dermaseptins are a family of antimicrobial peptides that can help defend
against bacterial, fungal, and viral infections. They have been studied for their potential
in treating various skin conditions.



 Like dermaseptins, phylloxins are antimicrobial peptides that might contribute to the frog’s natural defense against pathogens.



 These peptides have been studied for their potential pain-relieving  properties. They interact with opioid receptors and may have analgesic effects.



These peptides have anti-inflammatory properties and might contribute to the overall anti-inflammatory effects attributed to Kambo.



 This peptide is known to influence the release of stress hormones like corticotropin-releasing hormone (CRH), which could impact stress response and mood regulation



 Caerulein is a peptide that affects digestion and gastrointestinal functions. It can stimulate the release of digestive enzymes and might have implications for
digestive health. 


Kambo is administered by heating up a small stick that is then used to apply several burn points to the superficial layer of the skin. These are called gates, where the Kambo dots are applied onto these surface openings. There is no blood. It is just enough to allow the Kambo to get directly absorbed into the lymphatic system. The points can be small or slightly larger depending on the session. We will discuss the number and position of the points depending on your individual needs, there is no set number. The same points are reused if you have a series of them in the same session. All first time users will be tested for sensitivity before points are applied.


We will schedule a call to discuss the details, address any health concerns, review your current medications and supplements, and answer any questions you might have. It’s important to maintain a healthy diet. In the days leading up to the session, focus on consuming wholesome foods. While it’s not mandatory, try to avoid fried and heavily processed foods. Reduce your intake of salt, sugar, oil, alcohol, and recreational drugs. Hydrate yourself with electrolyte-rich water to assist your body in preparing. Take time to rest and relax. Consider writing down your intentions and clarifying your desired outcomes from this experience.

Upon Kambo entering into the system, it will scan the body, targeting any underlying issues and initiating a process of purification and cleansing in those areas. When doing a standard sit, the impact of Kambo can be both potent and fast. A surge of warmth envelops the body, accompanied by an elevated heart rate. Sensations such as burning, tingling, throbbing, numbness, dizziness, spaciness, swelling, calmness and even bliss might be encountered. It’s important to note that individuals’ bodily responses can vary significantly. Everybody’s bodies are uniquely different and will react in different ways.

Subsequently, at this phase you will begin to release undesired toxins and emotional energies. This purging transpires physically and emotionally. Throughout this entire journey, you’ll be under constant guidance and support, in a safe, gentle, confidential, and nurturing space, with the utmost care. Standard sessions are generally 2 to 2 1/2 hours, with the more intense effects typically subsiding within 20 to 45 minutes. Please know Gentle Meditative – Microdose Kambo sits are offered. Tailored and perfect for newcomers/first time sitters who want to have a slow gradual gentle experience and even for seasoned sitters who would like to reconnect with the Spirit of Kambo in a sweet and subtle way to receive the energetic benefits – energy clearing, heightened senses, clarity, focus, centeredness, luminosity and lightness of being.

As a practitioner well-versed in Master Holy Fire Reiki, other energy clearing and healing practices, I will seamlessly integrate those modalities as needed during this profound ceremony. Additionally, the option of Sananga and Rapé is available to further enrich your experience

It’s worth noting that Kambo is NOT a psychedelic, lacks psychoactive properties, thus visionary experiences are not part of the process.

Following the removal of the Kambo application points, a natural tree sap is administered to expedite the healing process. While the burn marks will gradually fade, it’s possible that faint scars may persist based on individual healing and skin characteristics. Many individuals view these Kambo scars as symbols of honor. These same points can be reused after a three-month interval. Each Kambo Session experience is distinctly different, even with repeated sits.


Following your session, you might experience increased vitality or a desire to rest. You will be fine to drive after if you are coming to the Temple Space. However, for the remainder of the day, it’s advisable to allocate sufficient time and space for yourself afterward to honor your process. The true benefits of this experience usually become more apparent after a good night’s sleep, extending into the subsequent days and weeks ahead.

The days following your session, aim to maintain a clean diet. It’s recommended to minimize your intake of caffeine, salt, sugar, and oil. Avoid consuming fried foods, overly processed items, alcohol, and recreational substances. Additionally, if possible, steer clear of negativity, drama, and environments or individuals with heavy energy. By shedding unwelcome and toxic influences/energy, you create room for rest, healing, and embracing the benefits of Kambo.

Surrounding yourself with high-vibrational energy. Activities such as yoga, deep breathing, meditation, journaling, and spending time outdoors in nature can all be incredibly supportive. Above all, practice gentleness and self-care during this period.

Many individuals express feelings of tranquility and inner calmness after their session. They describe a sensation of their bodies having undergone a reset and rejuvenation. This newfound sense of calmness, strength, and clarity anchors them, making them feel lighter and better equipped to handle life’s challenges.

Many people say they feel peaceful and an inner stillness after a session. They report feeling like their bodies have had a reset and been renewed, that they have an overall sense of calmness, strength, and clarity that grounds them, they feel lighter and everything becomes easier to manage.
