Hot stone massages performed at Yosi Ocha are a combination of several healing techniques that Maestro Heberto learned from various teachers of different ethnic groups. Later on, he instructed his sisters who also learned from their grandmother, a renowned masseuse in her time, known as a “sobadora” in the Shipibo culture – a title designated to a masseuse able to extract negative energies from the body of the patient using her hands.
To be able to practice this kind of traditional massage, one has to have activated the energy in the hands and in the eyes by working with hot stones. The purpose of the massages performed at Yosi Ocha is not purely relaxation, but it has deeper healing properties.
Hot stones are used to extract negative energies from the body, while the therapist can see the aura of the patient and make a diagnosis. Through massage, one can unblock energy channels and specific parts of the body with clogged energy.
The massages are performed by Maestro Heberto, or his sisters, Eunice and Karen, using various plant oils, such as coconut, cocoa, ungurahui, copaiba, aguaje, among others, combined with the essence of flowers or aromatic plants.
