Kambo Healing

Achieve the ultimate connection with yourself

What is Kambo?

The definition of Kambo, is just as layered as the experience itself.  Kambo is what both the frog, and secretion from the frog have been known by.  You will also hear Kambo referred to as Sapo, or Acaté. The technical term for the frog, is the Phyllomedusa Bicolor, or- Giant Waxy Monkey Tree Frog.  This beautiful creature has no known predators, and is always moving in a forward direction.  This is on par with what the medicine is all about for us human beings.  
Kambo is used in hunting rituals and also for clearing panema (negativity in the brain, or bad luck) in the Matsés tribe.  It can also be found in use with small tribes scattered throughout the amazon between Peru, and Brazil.  For hunting purposes, Kambo helps keep the mind incredibly sharp, and aware, and bring forth strong stamina to withstand long days and nights on the hunt.  Kambo is incredibly important when it comes to panema because one negative mind has the power to bring down an entire tribe.  While these tribes do not carry the same illness that we have, the one common thing that we all experience is the ever constant battle of the negative mind, or bad luck.  
It is best put that, Kambo is the perfect blend of both science and magic. The scientific part is with the bio-active and neuropeptides that are contained within the secretion.  There are 100’s of peptides to be found. Italian scientist, Vittorio Erspamer discovered many peptides within the kambo secretion. He has described kambo as, “a fantastic chemical cocktail with potential medical applications, unequaled by any other amphibian.” The peptides he has discovered trigger many beneficial chemical reactions within the human body.  It is known that kambo has the unique ability to cross the blood-brain barrier, enabling it to reach parts of the body that are otherwise difficult to reach and treat.  Several of the peptides have been isolated and have been synthesized.  There are currently over 70 Kambo patents pending.  
Some of the major peptides within Kambo are:
Phyllomedusin- Phyllokinin and Phyllomedusin- Caerulein and Sauvagine- Dermorphin and Deltorphin- Adenoregulin
The magic is felt in the way you feel after Kambo.  Yes, the first 20-40 minutes is uncomfortable, but what unfolds after in the days and weeks- is pure magic.  Kambo literally peels away your layers like an onion, so you can be have the ultimate connection with yourself, and the world around you.  Things that normally bother you, seem to disappear.  The spirit of Kambo brings you into alignment with yourself.  While there is no “magic bullet” kambo is the perfect catalyst in breaking the cycle, and giving you the push to start anew.

How Kambo found me:

I first heard about Kambo in 2012 on one of my trips to Peru. At the time, I was already working with 2 other Shamanic medicines, Ayahuasca, and San Pedro.  I was invited to partake in a Kambo ceremony…


Kambo was a new experience for me and I had zero knowledge of the benefits or that it even existed. Nanci was able to describe in detail the many benefits of Kambo in a way that made me feel at ease. Her knowledge made me want to begin my journey with this amazing medicine and find myself through the process. She began by taking me through what Kambo is and how it would affect me physically.

At first I was skeptical but she was able to calm nerves and relieve me of any fears I had at the time. After my first session with Kambo I immediately shed any doubt I had. Kambo is a transformative experience that allowed me to break down barriers that have existed for most of my adult life. It allowed me to give up control and purge what no longer served me. I still have more work to do and look forward to further Kambo sessions with this amazing practitioner. Thank you, Nanci and more importantly, thank you Kambo.

I was put in touch with Nanci a few weeks ago by a good friend. My knowledge of Kambo was limited to my online research but I knew that I wanted to try medicine to see if it could help with my focus and attention issues. Nanci was very professional in her introduction to me and took great care in explaining everything that was going to happen. She also explained that in her approach she dedicates her complete attention to only one person, and that person is the patient she is seeing. I gained a new perspective on healing and in general I have been feeling more positive and elevated in mind and spirit for the past few weeks. I look forward to going back for further treatments to continue to help me “peel away the layers of the onion” as Nanci likes to refer to it as. There is something special about connecting with natural healing medicines if you have a good intent set in your mind.

Thank you Nanci for your intuitive guidance and nurturing support while serving Kambo!

I’ve been blessed to work with the sacred spirit of Kambo over the last 3 years and was introduced to Nanci through a mutual friend who knew we both connected to the frog medicine.

After our initial phone consultation, I knew she would create a warm and safe container to receive this beautiful medicine so I immediately booked a session with her.

I’m so grateful I did. She trusts her relationship to the frog spirit for guidance in serving the number of gates (points) to be applied to your skin before each ceremony.

While in my process, she always makes sure I’m warm and comfortable while reminding me to focus on the intentions I’ve set and to surrender.

During a recent ceremony, as soon as she applied the medicine, I felt an electrical surge scan through my entire body which prompted one of the deepest cleansings (purge) I’d ever experienced with this medicine. Viva!

After each ceremony, I feel a heightened sense of mental clarity, a deeper connection to my soul and for several days after, a relaxed state of bliss.
If you’re being called to work with Kambo, I highly recommend working with Nanci. She has a very gentle way of holding space while you’re going through your process of deep healing.
