A Love of the Abdomen
Every Abdomen tells
a different & mysterious story
Your Abdominal Story varies
from day to day
 Where are you today and where did it all begin?
 Bloated & crampy …Or full of energy & pain free!!
 Of course it depends on STRESS!!
It is the Curandero’s job to help
you solve this mystery…by
 Being a good listener & Consejero and
using Platicas.
 The Abdominal Sobada - to remove
congestion & restore Ch’ulel.
 Maya Spiritual Healing – use of Copal,
Limpias, Prayer.
 Diet & Medicinal Plant Remedies
Ch’ulel –is the Maya word for chi, or life force energy is can be felt in the pulse…
…it is originated and regulated from our Breathing source - the Diaphragm
Ch’ulel & blood circulation, permeates every organ and cell in the body.
