When I contacted Blanca about booking our session, she was friendly and helpful. Answered all our questions and gave info about getting there.

I had wanted to do a Temezcal for 20 years, but needed to find the right fit. I didnt want to go to a spa in a crowded city. The location is not far from town and they have done a lovely job with the property.

We went for the sweat along with the herbal bath. Osvelia facilitated our session with love, grace, humour and great storytelling in the traditional Shamanic style that I love. We were pleasantly suprised with the delicious array of fruits and vegis to cool and nourish our entire bodies throughout the session. Orange, cucumber, aloe and papaya.

She prepared the baths after the sweat and sang as she gently washed us with the mint stalks and herbs. Gotta say, I have never been touched by softer hands. I had to giggle, as my partner is not comfortable with poeple touching him. He had a look of bliss on his face.

We were left to chill in the Temezcal in the baths and had a great relaxed time holding the space for each other and engaging in an honest and loving conversation.

Then back into the care of Blanca who guided us to hammocks to cool off and continue with the sense of safety and comfort.

We will definitely be back to experience this lovely healing center.

Thank you.

My husband and I got married in Oaxaca March 2021 and we wanted to experience a temazcal for the first time, my uncle booked us an appointment at Ceviarem. We arrived the day of our appointment, and the place was just wonderful and peaceful it felt magical and very comfortable. Blanca greeting us with a cup of Poleo tea it was delicious! When we were asked to change they provided very clean changing rooms.

I have to say we could not even imagine what we were in for, our temazcal experience included an herbal bath the whole process was about 45 min and I have to say it was the best 45 min we have ever experience before, Our shaman was wonderful provided us with so much information and was very patient when we needed a break, he gave us an unforgettable experience. I have to say that it was one of the best experiences we have ever had and we can't wait to book our next appointment. We are so grateful for Blanca and her team.
Muchisimas Gracias fue una experencia inolvidable!

I am so glad we followed our gut feeling and booked a Temazcal Session in combination with the massage. It was just what we needed and although we didn't have the most spiritual experience or transformation we felt refreshed and relaxed.
We can only recommend adding this experience to your visit to Oaxaca

My husband and I both find heat challenging, so decided to challenge ourselves with a temezcal. We really enjoyed the entire experience, including the herbal bath (this was an optional extra). We'd definitely recommend trying it, and this place in particular was a very well run family business.

My husband and I did a Temezcal for the first time (with the herbal bath), and, based on reviews (thanks all) decided to go to Ceviarem Temazcal. The whole family was wonderful. Blanca was great at follow up and communication before we got there and in explaining the experience when we arrived for our appointment. Her husband performed the Temazcal ceremony. He was kind and patient for several of us that had never taken part before. We learned a lot about Zaptotec culture and the Temazcal experience through this process, and also felt cleansed, peaceful and wonderful throughout the ceremony and afterwards. We are grateful to Blanca and her family for sharing their culture and expertise.

Attending this temazcal for the first time was a real privilege. From start to finish we were looked after very well, and the temazcal experience itself was amazing. I don't normally like saunas, but this is quite a unique experience and I would definitely recommend it. The facilitator was excellent at explaining each step of the process and what it was for, and they were very generous in their supply of a huge range of different concoctions featuring specific herbs, spices, fruit and other ingredients for this therapy, all of which we used in the process.

I am hugely grateful for the opportunity to receive this special and unique taonga from the indigenous people, even though I come from far away, and for the generosity with which it was given. Muchas gracias,

Makaira thank you so much for your words. We will remember you for ever. Your special gift for us was heart and soul touching. But not as big as the one you are given to our kids. A way to express themselves and to share a lot of love. Thank you! for sharing this special moment with us.

This was an excellent experience that I was fortunate enough to share with members of my family. Blanca was a wonderful host and made booking the experience super easy.

I feel so fortunate for all the wisdom and history Josheve shared with us. He explained thoroughly the various stages we were going to be experiencing accompanied by mixtures of herbs and fruits customized to awaken the senses and rejuvenate our bodies and mind.

I highly recommend Ceviarem Temazcal and look forward to coming back in the not so distant future.

We so enjoyed our morning with Blanca and her husband who facilitated our temazcal experience. He made us feel very safe and in control - with lots of opportunities to take a break if needed.
He explained the process, the history and the benefits of each of the three parts to provide calm and cleansing to the physical, emotional and spiritual body. There were lovely herbal "concoctions" and emotive sounds.
It was a wonderful and unusual experience that we highly recommend.

I went on the third day of my trip to Oaxaca, and honestly, the experience was perfect. The service was amazing, the woman in charge speaks excellent English and helped me by both calling a cab for me and explaining to the cab driver that I needed to stop at a money changer to turn my dollars into pesos so that I could pay. Her Husband claims his English is bad, but he was able to explain nearly everything about the process in English. I had to help him find the word "coconut" but it was extremely relaxing to not have to be constantly translating from my second language in order to understand what was going on. Not to mention, the women I ended up sharing the temazcal with spoke very little Spanish, and likely would not have been able to understand everything going on if it were presented in Spanish. The level of care that the pair lavished on us was easily worth far more than the experience cost, and every measure was taken to ensure that we were comfortable throughout the process. Unlike stories I've heard of some of the Aztec or Mixtec temazcals available, we were allowed to experience the ritual at our own pace, with bottled water for drinking and cold water for showering yourself always available. To quote the shaman, "Suffering is not necessary, the sweat is what's important." This took away any stress I felt about the experience and allowed me to enjoy the relaxing and cleansing ceremony at a pace I felt comfortable. Afterward, I felt amazingly empty and yet connected to the world around me, I would highly recommend visiting Ceviarem Temazcal Oaxaca, if for no other reason than the novelty of the experience and care with which they treat each of their guests.

I booked a tamazcal with the optional herb bath after reading the incredible reviews below and it was one of the best travel (and possibly life!) decisions I’ve ever made. Blanca and Joshave do such an incredible job of explaining the ritual and making you feel completely comfortable—it is truly a sanctuary outside the city. Definitely book and don’t skip the herbal bath, which is incorporated during the temazcal, not afterward as I mistakenly thought :) Thank you, Blanca and Joshave—I hope to be back as soon as possible!

Hanna! thank you very much for taking your time to write a review. I deeply appreciate that you liked the ritual and that you have lived it to the fullest. It is something very special for our culture but above all that each visitor feels at home and carries a little of our tradition in their hearts. Remember we will be here when you decide to come back to Oaxaca :) abrazos from the family.
