Traditional Healing Practices (THP) is an affinity community of people seeking to learn traditional healing practices and share them with others within their communities. Traditional healing practices are a collective body of knowledge and skills that have been passed down for thousands of years. THP has roots in many cultures, and Indigenous, African, and European healing all contribute to Curanderismo, the practice of traditional healing in Mexico. Curanderismo includes practical ways to treat or ease physical, emotional, or spiritual symptoms and distress with tools and resources that are readily available to everyone: herbs, nutrition, massage, platicas (heart-to-heart talks), singing, dancing, drumming, limpias (energy clearings), spiritual healing, and ceremony.
