Hello 🦋

Welcome to Sacred Forest Studio - a cozy and safe healing sanctuary in the heart of Glasgow, dedicated to amplifying Indigenous wisdom and healing potential of the Amazon rainforest - one of the first of its kind.


My name is Maya, I'm a holistic therapist and Kambô practitioner specialising in women's health, autoimmunity issues and mental wellness. Most people know me as a touring DJ and music producer but I've also been on a healing path for the last 20 years years pursuing my love of knowledge and passion for all life's mysteries, spiritual development and plant medicines. 


In 2008 I graduated with a BSc in Complementary Healthcare at University of West London, which covered advanced studies of body work, pathophysiology, TCM, body energetics and functional diagnostics as well as counselling skills, hypnotherapy and integration. I'm also extensively trained by Neal's Yard Remedies and Viridian and a big believer in looking at health, disease and wellness holistically, treating all aspects of our being and focusing on prevention rather than cure.

In my Kambo practice I combine Indigenous wisdom with science, evidence based research and compassionate, grounded and trauma informed approach that puts YOU in the centre and the driving seat of your healing journey, where safety is the Nr 1 priority. 

I have been serving Kambô for 4 years following a lengthy apprenticeship with my teacher and study in the Huni Kuin, Yawanawá and Noke Koi lineages from Brazilian Amazon. Additionally I've completed specialised training for autoimmunity and Lyme disease. I work with a wide range of clients but am particularly passionate about women's physical, mental and emotional wellbeing and addressing the root cause of the issue. Often the healing of these issues is trauma / suppressed emotion informed and for this reason safety, integrity and confidentiality are paramount. I have an individually tailored approach, offer one to one or group circle work and will be available for integration after your session. So far I've had the privilege of serving over 500 ceremonies.


I have  over 15 years of experience holding space in ceremonial settings as well as Q'ero shamanic, Ancient Egyptian, Tibetan Buddhist and Mazatec practices. Over the last 7 years my main study has been 

connecting with sacred Indigenous medicines and music of the Amazon rainforest and learning from the guardians of the forest such as the Huni Kuin and the Yawanawá people. Through this profound inner work and study I continue to learn about myself, nature and these beautiful ancient traditions. It is extremely important to me that we honour, support and protect the Indigenous people, avoid exploitation and appropriation and this is present in all my work as a practitioner. 

I work closely with Indigenous communities in the Amazon and only use ethically and fairly traded medicines obtained directly from the source. I will be able to tell you exactly where the medicine comes from, who collected it and when. 

It's an immense gift and joy for me to be able to do this work and I'll be delighted to offer any assistance on your path. I look forward to connecting with you!
