“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.

Several years of ongoing research by the University of Paris have shown Kambo to be super effective at killing cancer cells and Queens University in Belfast recently won a prestigious award for their ground breaking work with cancer and frog secretions. Kambo is one of the strongest natural anti-inflammatory, antibiotic, antimicrobial and anaesthetic 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. The mind becomes still, you feel lighter and everything becomes easier to manage.

In the longer term, Kambo empowers the immune system, rousing the body’s defence systems to their natural functions so that existing health problems are improved or resolved and future ones are less likely to occur.”

 Karen Darke – IAKP Master Practitioner and Founder.

WHAT IS KAMBO?

Kambo is one of the most potent,  natural, anti-inflammatory, antibiotic, antimicrobial and anesthetic substances found in the world. 

Kambo is a wholistic workout that engages all of who we are in supporting the healing needed to brings towards a state of wholeness. Kambo's intelligent healing light scans our physical body, our energetic bodies, our emotional history and trauma, all of who we are, in order to connect with the source of our dis-ease and to release what does not serve us. By removing obstacles on our path, releasing the trauma and energetic blockages that are stored in our physical bodies, festering into disease and illness, Kambo clears the way for the actualization of our authentic self.


Immediate and short term effects include enhanced mood, alertness, clarity, focus, energy and increased resistance to stress, tiredness, hunger and thirst. The mind becomes still, you feel lighter and everything becomes easier to manage. In the longer term, 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. In spiritual terms, Kambo works in a mystical fashion as a light that opens the way, helping us to overcome obstacles and release blockages in our lives.

 

Lisa-Marie and Heather-Rae offer you their knowledge, support and care when you come and sit with Kambo but ultimately it is always you that does the work. You will find your own personal connection to the spirit and to yourself through working with Kambo. You will feel empowered and it will guide you to heal yourself.


All participants will also experience a 30 minute complimentary V(EYE)BES Sound Bath during your resting period performed by Heather-Rae.

THE PROCESS

WHAT TO EXPECT DURING YOUR JOURNEY

Kambo is considered an ‘ordeal medicine'. as it has a cleansing and purgative effect which includes nausea, vomiting, defecation and emotional releases such as crying/sounding as your body and spirit are being cleansed.

                    

Small superficial burns (more shallow than a blister) are applied to the skin and the very top layer is gently and carefully wiped off. The secretion is applied directly onto this 'gate' and enters into the lymphatic system. A feeling of warmth immediately follows. The face, skin and core of your body will start to flush and the heart will beat faster. Blood pressure will fall slightly. You may feel pressure or tightness in your throat and head.

 

It is helpful to work with the breath and surrender into the experience with love and trust. It is common to experience gentle swelling of the throat and face. This is normal. Simply relax into the cleansing sensations and allow the Spirit of the Frog to purify and fortify you.


After a few minutes you may feel  your stomach contract and have a powerful urge to purge. Again this is normal. 

 

In the West we are used to calling purging 'Being sick'. In other areas of the world, purging is what our bodies do intuitively when we are sick, to remove the toxins and the 'sickness' from our bodies.

 

You will have a bucket in front of you, and you will purge into the bucket. You may also need to go to the bathroom. You will be assisted to do so. After your purge, the Kambo dots will be removed from your body and the major part of your cleanse is over. You will have time to rest during the Soundbath, before enjoying some light fruit and water.

 

Many people report feeling very peaceful immediately after the treatment and often enjoy these effects for the next 2-6 weeks.

BASIC SESSION

Anyone receiving Kambo for the first time will be given a test point to assess reactions and sensitivity to the secretion, and to determine the total number of points for the session. 3-9 points is optimal for a first session.

Points are traditionally placed on the lower right leg for women and the upper left arm or chest for men. Personal preference, aesthetics and existing tattoos, scars, moles etc will be taken into consideration when deciding burn location.

TARGETED SESSION

Following an initial consultation and a first basic treatment (which often acts as a primer or introduction to the powerful effects of Kambo), subsequent sessions can be focused on specific health issues or blockages, and utilise combinations of Acupuncture Meridians, Chakra points and Ear points.

INTENSIVE SESSION

As the name suggests, a Kambo intensive involves doing a lot of Kambo in a short space of time. This is usually to help clear difficult emotional blockages/challenges or as part of a focused protocol for a specific health issue. An Intensive can be two Kambo sessions in two hours, three sessions over three hours, or, three sessions over three consecutive days. These are powerful sessions and can yield incredible results as documented in countless testimonials. 

DURATION

A typical Kambo ceremony lasts about 3 hours. The time spent in the peak of the cleansing and purgative process can be as short as 10 minutes and as long as a couple of hours.

AFTERCARE

After the dots of Kambo are removed, the points are dressed with a Peruvian tree sap solution ‘Sangre de Grado’ (Dragon’s Blood). This helps them to heal faster and ensures they stay free from infection until they scab naturally within a day or so. The burn marks will heal and fade with time, but depending on your skin color and type you may always have small visible scars. Most people see their Kambo marks as a badge of honor to be worn proudly and many ask to have the dots arranged on the skin in a pleasing artistic pattern. The same burn points can be reused after 2-3 months.

COMMON QUESTIONS

DO THE BURNS LEAVE SCARS?

With proper care, the gates will leave little to no scarring. If you leave the dragon’s blood to naturally dry
and fall off in its own time, and follow it up with vitamin E oil, the scars will fade. In some cases very light scarring will remain (this is the case on my skin). Like our Amazonian bothers and sisters, frequent recipients see these scars as a badge of honor.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?

Allow 3-6hrs for the ceremony and rest period. The actual 'active' stage can last from as little as
10 minutes, to a couple of hours. This part is completed within 20-40 minutes for most people. 

CAN I BRING A FRIEND/PARTNER?

Unless previously arranged and agreed upon, nobody will be admitted into the space who is not receiving Kambo. This is so that a safe and loving space can be held for you to experience your full process, uninterrupted.

TESTIMONIALS

Let me start by saying that Lisa Marie is just incredible. I felt tremendously safe, respected and cared for during my time with her. I had few expectations going into the Kambo ceremony, which left me open to wherever the Kambo took me. Lisa Marie did a superb job of explaining what to expect without leading our group into any specific place. She started by having us each state an intention and introduce ourselves to the group. As someone who tends to be nervous in a group setting, I feel surprisingly at ease spilling some personal information to these “strangers”. I can only attribute that to the cool energy of the room, supplied by Lisa Marie. She was extremely professional while maintaining compassion and composure, plus she has a great sense of humor which made the whole night seem light and lovely, even if the experience itself was super intense. I had a profound emotional release which left me feeling like I wanted to have my own space. Lisa Marie and her assistant Heather Rae held space for me and made their presence and support known without interfering. They totally took care of me and I never felt afraid or alone. Today, a day after the ceremony, I feel amazing, as if a burden has been lifted. I feel light in a way I have not in a long time. I’m so grateful for this amazing experience and cannot recommend Lisa Marie enough if you’re looking for a truly special practitioner.” - RACHEL M.

This was an epic journey! I came in the door with zero experience in plant medicine or ordeal medicine (as I learned it was called). But Lisa-Marie walked me through the entire process. We set my intention. I don't have any physical ailments that I needed to address, so my focus was purely emotional. The theme of "choice" has been resonating in my life for the last several months. That internal discussion has insisted and inspired the deliberate purging of many things in my world that I found I was no longer choosing; but things that had stuck around due to old behavior patterns and fear. What's amazing about Kambo is that each piece of this practice is highly customizable to the individual. I wanted to draw a proverbial line in the sand for myself and use this Kambo session to physically purge these old patterns in order to move forward with a clean physical/emotional slate. I felt safe. I felt taken care of. All that was left to do was surrender to the practice. And I’m so happy that I did. Because it’s well worth it when you’re on the other side. I'm sure everyone's experience is different. Yes I puked. Yes I was dripping sweat from every pore. Yes my face swelled up like a Beverly Hills Housewife that's been hitting the Botox too hard. Yes I cried. Yes my whole body shook uncontrollably. Yes I was physically uncomfortable. Yes I will absolutely be doing it again. So if you’re interested in exploring this ancient practice for the first time, or you’re a regular in the world of Kambo, Lisa-Marie does an amazing job of creating an experience suited to your individual wishes.” - LAUREN P.

“My asthma is even MORE mild after that ceremony. It’s insane. It went from like a 6 to a 2 from the first one last year and I don’t feel it at all and haven’t used an inhaler at all since last week.” - BILL L.

My experience with Kambo under the care of Lisa-Marie the Kambo practitioner and Heather-Rae the gorgeous creator of V(EYE)BES LA, was nothing short of incredible. As my first time working with Kambo, I was undoubtedly nervous but wow, was I blown away by the intricate care and selflessness of these two healing women. I felt so safe to go through the motions because of the in depth knowledge and experience Lisa-Marie had with with medicine and the kindness Heather-Rae showed me during the experience, from fanning me to keep me cool to intuitively knowing when I needed more water. The space at V(EYE)BES is so magical, it is open, the air is fresh and you are surrounded by beautiful plants, singing bowls and white light. Because of the sanctuary they created, I was able to freely go through the motions and receive the exact, detailed guidance I needed as well as deeply purge all that wasn’t serving me. I will only ever work with these incredible women again and I highly recommend this collaboration of beings to anyone that really wants to turn over a new leaf.” - SARAH L.

“I truly didn't know what to expect walking into my first Kambo session. I've been on a self love, self acceptance, self betterment journey for over 10 years now and when I saw Lisa-Marie talking about Kambo on her social media outlets, I was so intrigued. We had a vulnerable discussion about my personal struggles and Lisa-Marie went through the process of the session with me. She was kind, thorough and I felt safe to be in this space with her. No one could have prepared me for my Kambo journey. I got through the first part creating the points for the Kambo to set and I thought "oh I'm such a badass! I got this!" I didn't know what was coming for me. Kambo put me in a place that is hard for me to be. A place where I have no defenses, a place where all I can do is be present, in the moment and breathe. I was angry at myself for putting myself in this situation. And then I began to realize I wasn't the one who was angry. My body & my self were angry at me. Angry for all the things I've done that did not come from a place of love and self care. Letting go of control is beyond hard for me. Lisa-Marie was there every step of the way. She encouraged me to go deeper. She was silently caring for and loving me in every moment. She creates a space that is safe for anyone. I could not have done it without her there. I am grateful, I am proud... I am a little scared for the next one ;) But I know with Lisa-Marie by my side, I will be safe and supported.” - TARA G.
