About Maya Abdominal Massage
What is Arvigo Therapy?
The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy® are founded on an ancient Maya technique of ABDOMINAL MASSAGE. This therapy guides internal abdominal organs into their proper position so that organ functions are supported and enhanced. It is an external, gentle, non-invasive massage to the abdomen and lower back.
This work is best known for the correction of the prolapsed, fallen, or tilted UTERUS in women, for the prevention and treatment of benign PROSTATE enlargement in men, and for relief of many common chronic DIGESTIVE disorders. These techniques effectively alleviate tissue congestion and organ constriction to improve the vital flows of energy, blood, lymph, and nerves in the abdomen. This helps prevent the progression of dis-ease symptoms and improves the body's abilities to SELF REPAIR AND BALANCE organ function. It can also release emotional and energetic tension from the abdomen.
Additionally, Arvigo Therapy is beneficial for women throughout child-bearing years, helps enhance FERTILITY and conception, supporting structural changes in pregnancy to alleviate pain and discomfort, helping the baby find an optimal position for birth, easing labour and encouraging pelvic recovery.
Origins of Arvigo Therapy
Dr. Rosita Arvigo, naprapathic physician and master herbalist, has lived and studied with traditional healers in Central America for over 30 years. She apprenticed with the Maya shaman, Don Elijio Panti, renowned for many years throughout Central America for his profound healing skills. Dr. Arvigo also apprenticed with Miss Hortence Robinson, a well known herbal midwife, for whom she learned specialized care for pregnancy, labouring and postpartum women. Combining her knowledge of anatomy, physiology, and naprapathy (study of muscles, ligament, connective tissues) with her extensive acquired background in traditional healing methods, she formulated the Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy®.
Dr. Arvigo established the Arvigo Institute in 2000 and trains healthcare professionals worldwide.
