"It is with a heart and hips full of gratitude that I thank Panquetzani Ticitl [of Indigemama], for giving me the gift of pain relief. Yesterday was the first time I had my hips properly closed. Today, I woke up and noticed that there's a significant difference in my hip pain. Tonight I will be showing my 12 and 14 year old daughters how to close me with the rebozo."- Bianca Tema Mercado, Midwife, Participant ACLC (2013)

Panquetzani breathes new life into ancestral traditions, offering time-tested techniques inspired by Mesoamerican medicine, Mexican folk healing, traditional foods, and herbalism.
Panquetzani honors the over 4,000 year-old traditions of her foremothers and integrates her 16 years of study into her practice. She comes from a matriarchal family of folk healers, growing up with bedtime stories of magic, miracles, and deep transformation. These impactful narratives have led Panquetzani to believe that all people have innate wisdom that can revolutionize their own well-being and that of their families. As a holistic womb counselor, complete wellness coach, traditional birth attendant, and foundress of Indigemama: Ancestral Healing, her goal is to support, educate, inspire, and gently guide her clients and students. On her days off, you’ll find Panquetzani fermenting, writing, preparing herbs, playing music, and exploring nature with her sons.
"A Cerrar las Caderas is a comadre in our journeys with ancestor medicine and a camino into our collective womb. Panquetzani shares her ancestor wisdom with humility and integrity, like the ancestors would want it. Her mezcla of plant, rebozo + massage medicine during the postpartum experience is not only a blessing, pero a divination of what a modern tribe looks, feels and loves you like."
