I love serving Kambô in ceremony. It gives me an oportunity to receive and connect with the spirit of the frog. It’s like nurturing and growing a relationship with a dear friend. A connection, a teacher, a guide, an incredible support that I am so grateful to be in service off.

In ceremony I have the priviledge to really see the other person (the client), their authentic self that is often so hidden, even from themselves. I see this as a true gift that brings me closer to myself each time I serve.

Kambô cleanses and clears the path ahead, promoting a deeper understanding of ourselves and the world around us. The frog teaches us to move forward on our journey and reminds us to connect, renew, nurture and love unconditionally. 

Throughout the entire ceremony I will hold a solid protected space for healing and transformation to happen. 

What is Kambô?

Kambô is a secretion collected from the Amazonian tree frog, Phyllomedusa Bicolor, found in the Amazonian jungles of South America. It’s also known as Sapo, Kampu or ‘vaccina da floresta’ (vaccine of the forest). It detoxifies the body and offers a natural way to empower and boost your immune system; it has powerful and potent anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, and anti-viral properties. It’s one of the strongest natural antibiotics and anesthetics found naturally in the world. At a mental level, the mind becomes more focused and still, with increased resistance to stress. Everything feels calmer and becomes easier to manage, you feel lighter and more grounded.

What happens in a Kambô ceremony?

Small points, gates,  will be burned with a hot stick onto the skin, to open the epidermis. The Kambô is mixed with a little water and made into small points to be places on the gates. The amount of points varies for each individual and I will decide the right amount of points for your treatment on the day. 

Kambô, once applied, will then travel straights into and through the lymphatic system scanning the body for areas to do its work. You may experience throbbing or burning sensations in the places where the medicine is working on them.

Blood pressure will rise and then fall, at which point nausea is experienced and the desire to purge will occur. As blood pressure slowly falls, many will feel dizzy, weak, foggy, shaky, and may even briefly faint. The discomfort present is the accumulation of toxins (physical, energetic and emotional) in your body wanting to exit. Purging can take a number of forms including vomiting, diarrhea, sweating, crying, and shaking. The purging can cleanse on a physical, eneregetic and emotional level. It can help to work with an intention as this can help with focus during the treatment.

After purging, nausea will subside and the medicine is taken off of the gates. Within a short time (usually 20-40 minutes) you will feel much better and will desire to eat and drink.

Directly afterward many feel an increase of energy, stamina, clarity, and wellbeing, for some, it may take a few days of feeling a bit more tired and weak, but mostly within a day, depending on your state of health, you will begin to feel the real lasting benefits of your Kambô treatment.

After the points of Kambô are removed, the points are dressed with a Peruvian tree sap  ‘Sangre de Grado’ (Dragon’s Blood). This helps them to heal faster and ensures they stay free from infection.

The burn marks will heal and fade with time, but depending on your skin color and type you may have small visible scars. Most people see their Kambô marks as a badge of honor to be worn proudly. The same burn points can be reused after 2-3 months.

Kambô is not psychoactive and nor produces hallucinations, but can bring a short altered state of reality in some people and many people receive insights and messages about living a healthier life.

Benefits of Kambô

Kambô offers a full-body detoxification and a natural way to empower and boost your immune system. It also has potent anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, and anti-viral properties, being one of the strongest natural antibiotics and anesthetics found naturally in the world.

Immediate and short-term effects include enhanced mood; focused mind; energy; and increased resistance to stress, tiredness, hunger, and thirst. The mind becomes still and you feel lighter. Everything becomes easier to manage. In the long term, Kambô empowers the immune system by rousing the body’s defenses to their natural functions so that existing health problems are improved or resolved and future ones are less likely to occur. At a mental level, your mind becomes more focused and still. Increased resistance to stress. Everything feels calmer and becomes easier to manage. You feel lighter. In spiritual terms, Kambô works in a mystical fashion as a light that opens the way, helping to overcome obstacles and release blockages on an emotional level. It clears the energy field and realigns the chakras enabling one to break negative habits and think more naturally.

The properties of the peptides found in Kambô also cover a wide range of potential medical uses ranging from cancer, addiction, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Candida, fibromyalgia, depression, PTSD, anxiety, chronic fatigue, acute pain, migraines, blood circulation problems, vascular insufficiency, organ disease, skin and eye issues, fertility problems, HIV/AIDS, hepatitis, Lyme’s, autoimmune disorders, etc.

Kambô in its original, natural form is a holistic treatment that works on the mind, body, energy, and spirit at all levels in ways that we still do not completely understand. Kambô definately has a mystical aspect to it. 

Traditionally Kambô is used by many tribes such as the Matses, Katukina, Yawanawa, and Maruba. The use of Kambô differs amongst tribes, but the main traditional uses are for lifting panema (an indigenous name for dark or negative energy), for hunting magic (by increasing speed and energy during hunting and making the hunter invisible by temporarily eliminating human odor) and of course to treat diseases such as malaria, snake bites, infections, fertility problems, to cleanse, detox, and strengthen the mind and body, to increase energy and stamina, and to reduce pain.

Different treatents 

Basic Treatment

People new to Kambô will receive a basic treatment consisting of  a minimum of 3 to 9 points. It is traditional for men to receive them on the left upper arm and women on the right lower leg. All first time clients will be given a test point to make sure the medecine can received safely and how much need is needed for that treatment. A test point can also be requested for returning clients if they wish so.


Layered Treatment

This treatment is recommended if the person is recovering from illness, elderly, very sensitive or anxious about receiving Kambo. This treatment can make the experience less intense but it usually lasts longer.


Specialised Treatments

These treatments focus on a specific intention and need. Clients receive an in-depth consultation before the treatment to determine what areas to target, strengthen and/or clear physically, energetically and/or emotionally. The points can be administered on chakras (eneregetic centers on the midline of the body, usually the spine), meridians (traditional Chinese medicine), or ears (auricular Kambô). Intuiative treatents can be done as well, where I would scan the body for where to place the gates.

Whats clients are saying after the Kambô experience.

Sandra San

I had a ceremony with Esther twice. I felt really safe, and she knows what she is doing and feels what everyone needs. I can totally recommend her. It was a very sacred experience and since I had it I am in more flow, having more insights and start to realize things that bring me foreward .If you feel called by the frog she is the one to go to , thank you you beautiful soul for your being and work

Kya Ki

Esther is a very heart centered space holder and she has a beautiful connection with the frog spirit. I had a profound experience with her facilitation and I trust her wholeheartedly.

Aisling Walsh

Thank you so much for the gift of this medicine.
You’re an incredible space-holder.

Kristina Ruffalo

This was one of the best decisions I’ve made. I followed my intuition to meet the frog and it lead me to such a compassionate, strong, comforting guide. I couldn’t recommend Esther enough. Thank you so much Esther, for being a huge part of this transformation.

Beate Jeska

The experience with Esther was amazing. She holds space and feels exactly where you are.


Arabella Tornow

I am extremely grateful that I was able to make my first Kambo experience with Esther. From the very first minute I felt safe and secure and that is one of the most important things to me. She is a very authentic and warm-hearted person and has an incredibly broad knowledge, which I admire very much. Gracias.


Brigitte Ba

Esther knows how to create a sacred space before and during the ceremony. She leads the ceremony with lots of love, care and presence. The space she creates is really safe.
Thank you Esther for this first experience of Kambo. I know now that you were sent on my way, it meant to be!


Clara Fraser

Esther is an amazing teacher and the Kambo itself was incredible …the space the ceremony… looking forward to doing it again soon. 

Nicolle Potsch

A big thank you to the universe for leading me to Esther. A true master of the sacred medicine, Esther shares her knowledge with compassion, devotion, love. She is engaged and nurturing through the whole ceremony. She makes you feel safe and enveloped in care. She shares her gift boundlessly. Not only a thorough understanding of all things Kambo, Esther has a strong connection with the bounty of the forest.
My deepest thank you for a truly rewarding experience!


Jessica Hennequin

I can’t imagine doing Kambo with someone else, I feel comfort, trusting and well taken care off in a beautifully held space.

Paige Graham

I cannot recommend sitting with Esther enough,  she is incredible at what she does and has completely set such a high standard for how I want to experience any ceremony. This medicine has monumental impact on me every time I sit. Thank you Esther for bringing this magic and the frog to us!

Zetta Stone

Kambo has had such a profound effect on my life. I am so grateful to the frog. And, no one better to lead the ceremony than Esther. She takes such good care of everyone and guides everyone through the intense process masterfully. They make an incredible team.

Michael Sheehan Alahouzos

Esther has saved my life, and there’s no other way to put it. I cannot fathom imagining how my life *could* have been without her helpful insights, presence and care. Esther, you gave me reasons to keep going, and I am who I am because you believed in me; because you lifted me up when I was sick and confused and lost; and because you are the real f___ing deal. I love you, I love your practice, and I’m honored to say to the world that we have performed miracles together in your practice.

Jacynthe Cote

Esther is great!!! Caring and professional I totally recommend it was an amazing experience!

Murray Garrad

Esther will take you on a beautiful, and sometimes challenging, healing process that I have found to be profound. I cannot recommend Esther highly enough.

Kristy Armond

Sitting with Esther was my 7th Kambo ceremony. It was the most powerful and deep ceremony I’ve had. She did a wonderful job facilitating and offered tips and suggestions that I had not heard from the other 3 facilitators I’ve sat with before.
I highly recommend the experience.

Aaron Anderson

I love Kambo, it is an amazing medicine on so many levels. I have had kambo with four different IAKP practitioners now as well as with the Yawanawa tribe in Brazil and my best experience by far was the circle held by Esther. The space was held perfectly. Esther is a master of her craft and I would recommend her to both first timers and those already familiar with the frog.

Katrina Aboulnaga

Esther offers this gift with love, integrity and compassion to all who sit with her. This was not my first time sitting with this medicine but my first with Ester, she held the space perfectly and instinctively knew what was needed. I felt a deep connection with her the second I saw her. Thank you Ester for your deep wisdom and acceptance of every part of me and my journey!

Ben Pollard

It’s such a delight to sit with you Esther!!!
You’re so kind and and caring and compassionate, yet very strong in creating a safe and grounded space for everybody.
I like that you intuitively know how to gently nudge someone a little further (if necessary) to maximise the benefits of the ceremony.
This balance creates a magical space to connect with the frog.

Jessica Jones

Esther is an amazing space holder and I could not thank her enough for her patience and guidance for this experience. She made my 2nd Kambo experience feel much safer and comfortable than the first (with a different practitioner), and she was very encouraging and wise. If I ever do it again, I will definitely do it with her. I would highly recommend her for anyone wanting to experience the frog medicine!!

Monica MacRae

I dont usually write reviews but I feel that this is one of those big decisions that reading other peoples experiences can be really helpful for.
Esther held the space so beautifully, and made me feel so safe and reassured that the process was happening as it should, and everything was going to be ok. I felt she was very intuitive in her knowing of how to prompt and support us all uniquely. And of course most important is that I feel she has a deep love for this sacred frog and medicine, and her intention to serve and share this experience is sincere.
It is probably the most intense experience I have put myself through, yet I felt with Esther that I will be willing to do it again if I feel called again. So much gratitude for this experience.

Florence Guibert

Esther est une guide incroyable, bienveillante, douce, encourageante, très vigilante au processus en cours pour chacun. J’ai beaucoup de gratitude d’avoir découvert cette médecine avec elle.
Si l’appel est là, vous pouvez vous diriger vers Esther en toute confiance.

Suze Dijkstra

The real deal. Esther is serious a good teacher, who has a powerful and lovely commitment with the kambo frog.
The kambo itself is also pure and the real deal.
I loved every part my private ceremony, and I know the medicine since 10 years. Not every kambo, ceremony, or teacher is the same, and it is save to say that Esther is the one you are looking for.

Sydney Barnett

I highly recommend a Kambo journey with Esther. She is an angel of a facilitator. From the moment she greets you, you know that you are welcome as you are, that you are in safe care, and that you are going to be guided by an experienced professional. I will definitely return to Esther when the frog calls again. Thank you for your presence, your deep wisdom, and for helping so many souls to recenter and leave inspired by the magic in our world.

James Cohen

I just recently had a group session with Esther and can’t be more thankful. She is very thoughtful, caring, intuitive and professional. She has a great respect for the medicine and knows what she is doing. I felt very safe and cared for, but also felt this in the other participants for her as well. She holds amazing space and I highly recommend her. Whether this is your first Kambô treatment or you have had sessions before, you will get exactly what you need from a session with this beautiful soul.

Esther is an IAKP Master Kambô Practitioner and Teacher with a worldwide practice.
