Traditional Treatment

The traditional or basic treatment will be your introduction to Kambo. Points are made on the upper left arm for men and lower right leg for women. The points are applied in a vertical line working towards the heart. The number of points that will we need will vary from person to person but generally will be between 3 and 9 points depending on their reaction to the test point.

Test Point

The test point is an IAKP created treatment approach whereby the client receives one dot of Kambo in order to gauge their sensitivity to the secretion. Once the practitioner is satisfied they will apply the rest of the treatment. The reason for the test point is twofold:

1) In the rare event that the client has a severe adverse reaction to Kambo, the practitioner can quickly remove the point ensuring that the least amount of Kambo has entered the client's body, allowing for a quick recovery.
2) The test point allows the practitioners to observe the clients reaction in such a manner that it becomes easier to discern how many points the client is likely to need for the most effective treatment.

Layered Treatment

The layered treatment is a specialised Kambo application technique whereby points are added at intervals. This is done in such a way to mitigate the intensity of a normal treatment allowing for individuals who are frail or elderly to partake in a Kambo session. This treatment can also be used to boost the amount of Kambo one receives during a treatment.

Chakra Treatment

Ayurvedic science identifies 3 central channels or Nadis through which life force (kundalini/prana/chi) flows:

the central Sushumna the Pingala solar channel on the right side and the Ida lunar channel on the left side of the body. The 7 chakras are where these channels intersect. Exclusively developed by the IAKP, a Chakra Treatment targets a particular chakra, stimulating the flow of energy and removing physical and emotional blocks.The chakras are treated by applying Kambo points to the respective area of the spine. The number of points depends principally on your treatment history.

Auricular Treatment

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, the ear is considered to be a microcosm of the human body, with a multitude of acupuncture points. This body of knowledge was taken by French neurologist Paul Nogier and made into the practice of Auriculotherapy. The premise of which is that conditions affecting the physical, the mental or emotional health of the patient are treatable by stimulating particular point on the outer ear. Traditionally this was done through the use of acupuncture on the corresponding point but practitioners have found that when applying Kambo to the auricular points, positive results are experienced for conditions where normally it would not be possible to apply Kambo to the areas, for instance, the Kidney.
