A hand held bunch of palm fronds tied together and used in the Amazon as both a rhythm and healing instrument. In a healing, the chacapa is rubbed and rattled over or near the patient’s body to capture or brush out the spirit intrusion. Once he has it in his chacapa, the shaman then blows through the leaves to disperse the intrusion into the rainforest where the spirits of the plants absorb and discharge its energy. Our chapacas ship directly from Peru standard mail and take 3-4 weeks.
