COMPREHENSIVE MASSAGE THERAPY for
Visceral, Nerve and Brain Health
Allowing internal organs to heal from within
Inspiring physical, emotional and spiritual health and well-being
The healing power of touch. Touch is magical! It is a two way communication - the person being touched receives as well as the person who is touching! Intentional, compassionate touching conveys the feeling, in the moment, that it is safe to be, to be alive, to receive, to relax, to open. May you all continue to touch and be touched!
A healing massage studio in Abita Springs, Louisiana, opened in May, 2006, by Donna Caire, a licensed massage therapist certified in the Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy. "I use my extended training in Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy, visceral manipulation, chi nei tsang, craniosacral, diet and herbal remedies and integrate this knowledge into comprehensive massage sessions."
Universal Healing , One WOMB at a Time
The ability to heal from within comes from a profoundly deep place in the body/mind. As a practitioner, my role is to connect you with that deep inner space. Our extraordinary ability to vibrate in the interconnected web has its roots in our viscera. Our organs allow us to breath, think, feel, be nourished, heal, and regenerate. They lie within a rich estuary of blood, lymph, blood and chi that supplies the pathways for the nutrients, neurotransmitters, and hormones that guide us on our journey and the drains for waste elimination which support our innate intelligence to repair, heal and regenerate.
Abdominal Massage Therapy enhances this amazing life force and the vitality of the viscera and their tributaries by working with deep, soft, and gentle touches to relax restrictive musculature and fascia around the diaphragm and organs to create optimal flows that provide the means to express health and happiness.
Life events that can disrupt this innate intelligence include physical and emotional traumas, inflammation, dehydration, surgeries, sedentary lifestyle, infections, pollution, poor diet, poor posture, pregnancy and delivery, loss of spirit, depression....
The body/mind functions most optimally when the viscera, blood, lymph and nerves are able to move freely within their surrounding structures. What we experience as aches and pains in the muscles, joints, head, back, neck, and shoulder can be a result of accumulated abdominal pressure on the nerves coming out of the spine, visceral tension or intestinal challenges.
When massaging the abdomen, a dialogue is initiated with the tissues that calls back the spirit. The viscera becomes more toned, neuronal receptors within the organs become more available, and synthesis of serotonin in the GI tract, immunity (80% of immune system lies in the gut!), energy, and metabolism are increased.
A long list of challenges such as gastritis, poor elimination, low back pain, indigestion, heartburn, restriction of breathing, low energy, bloating, swollen prostate, difficult pregnancies, painful or irregular menses, infertility, menopause, PMS, prolapse, etc. can be alleviated by the body's natural healing abilities.
Abdominal Massage Therapy engages the viscera, the fascia and the circulatory, lymphatic, and nervous systems that regulate and affect them. By identifying and releasing dysfunctional tensions and pressures, the regenerative, digestive, and eliminative organs can receive their full complement of blood, lymph and nerve innervations. The body is free to make a focused, healing response that results in positive changes throughout the entire body and mind.
"Our issues are in our tissues." Emotions communicate to us our needs and fully honoring them is vital to our ability to mature and be at peace. The belly carries cultural and personal issues of body image, vulnerability and strength. Abdominal Massage Therapy allows validation of unprocessed emotional charges , creating opportunities for new insight, facilitating our ability to take responsibility for our own health, and helps to "re-member" our life's purpose. Freeing the tensions in this area can be life affirming and life changing.
Abdominal massage, done with love and intention, “stirs the pot” by stimulating the opening of the channels, releasing old patterns, and instilling nourishing energy.
Honor the gift of your body - it is your ally, not your enemy. Befriend it with abdominal self care and it will inspire you!
