Kambo treatments are widely understood to be very safe and effective. As with yoga, cold water exposure modalities, wim hof, massage and many other wellness practices there is always a risk to any of these activities. UKA is a grass roots organization and manintains the need for Kambo's safety and sanitary standards while integrating the client's healing in to their everyday lives. We maintain reverence and respect to the medicine and teach people to work with it safely and efficiently following UKA standards. There are however sets of protocols UKA practitioners choose to follow because of what we have learned and observed. We ask that practitioners attend a First Aid course before begining their parctice and ask them to check in with us if they have any questions regarding application. Here are just a few of the guidelines that UKA practitioners follow and a brief description. Only those that attend a UKA gathering can claim to follow all our guidelines and only a few are listed here and its important to remember that significant study and practice are required.
UKA has two contrasting principals that guide our overstanding as a group: On one hand we believe that several simple safety protocols can greatly increase the safety and effectiveness of treatments. Most importantly protecting the client, the Kambo tradition itself and the practitioner.
On the other hand we have strongly shamanic and spiritual beliefs and believe that most people who give Kambo should have experience with nature, plants and wilderness integration. Kambo practitioners should have strong resourcefulness and layers of spiritual energetic principles and vibrational techniques that they can work with.
