Takitour Takiwasi

On the banks of the Shilcayo River lies the Takiwasi Center, which has been operating as therapeutic community since 1992 with a unique treatment protocol that integrates traditional Amazonian medicine, modern medicine and psychotherapy.

Medicinal plants are one of the central axes of the treatment and the basis of the natural products elaborated by the Takiwasi Laboratory, the first of its kind in the San Martin region.

The Laboratory works following a BioTrade approach, in conjunction with the Kechwa-lamista indigenous communities, in favor of the conservation and recovery of local ancestral knowledge.
