Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal TherapyTM is centered on an ancient Maya practice that has been known and practiced by healers and midwives for thousands of years. Rosita Arvigo developed this invaluable healing treatment based on what she learned during her 10 year apprenticeship with Don Elijio Panti, a Maya Shaman from Belize.

It is an external, non-invasive manipulation which repositions abdominal and reproductive organs, improving the flow of blood, lymph, nerve and chi systems so the body can better achieve homeostasis. When physical blocks are released, symptoms abate, emotions balance and the spirit is nourished. Abdominal and reproductive displacement causes many common female and male complaints, and both women and men benefit greatly from these techniques which incorporate an entire holistic approach to health including herbs and essences, nutrition, exercise, massage and emotional and spiritual healing.

This technique includes an invaluable self-care program that enables us to care for ourselves with gentle, nurturing techniques that assist the body's innate healing abilities. For women, shifting the uterus back into place brings the natural balance in the body back to the pelvic area and surrounding organs.

Old adhesions from invasive treatments to the pelvic and abdominal area, including fibroid tumors, endometriosis, cesarean delivery and hysterectomy are diminished when addressed by uterine massage.
