What Is a Limpia Cleansing and What to Expect
What is a limpia?
Limpia is the Spanish word for clean or cleanse. This widespread practice of energy medicine is present in many Latin American cultures. These different traditions use limpias to cleanse the energetic body of old and stagnant energies, foreign entities, and illness.
Some limpia traditions come directly from purely indigenous practices, and some come out of mestizo traditions where the influence of 500 years of European presence has merged indigenous and Catholic practices into a new hybrid.
