Traditional Indigenous Medicine Center

Capulálpam de Méndez

Capulálpam is recognized by the richness of the Zapotec culture and part of its ancestral legacy is the traditional alternative medicine, which consists of herbs, limpias, sobadas, and temazcal baths.

In the heart of the town, on Calle 16 de Septiembre, is the Centro de Medicina Indígena Tradicional (Traditional Indigenous Medicine Center). Whoever visits it is assisted by healers, men, and women who use the kindness of Mother Earth to relieve muscle aches, headaches, swellings or simply to have a space for relaxation. Daily, temazcal ceremonies are held to lift the most sagging bodies.

There is a naturist pharmacy with products made by the inhabitants themselves such as teas, ointments, and herbal compounds to take home because it never hurts to have a remedy at hand. There is also a chapel to pray for the healing of a family member.
