Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy
The Maya of Central America have practiced abdominal massage for centuries. Maya healers have treated reproductive and gastrointestinal ailments with a combination of massage techniques, herbal preparations and spiritual healing. Dr. Rosita Arvigo has brought these techniques to North America. These Maya Abdominal Massage techniques eliminate the primary cause of female complaints, the congested uterus, thereby preventing the progression of symptoms to chronic disease. Many women have a misplaced or fallen uterus. In men, the massage treats the prostate just as it treats the uterus. Bodywork in this area can help to maintain a full blood supply and prevent swelling and inflammation in the prostate.
What does the Maya Massage Involve?
The Maya Abdominal Massage is an external, non-invasive manipulation to reposition internal organs that have shifted and as a result restricted the flow of blood, lymph, nerves and chi. This massage is also capable of lifting the colon upwards when prolapsed. The initial treatment takes approximately two hours. It consists of a review of the clients health history, the Maya massage, and teaching of the self-massage. Treatments thereafter, spread out at intervals dependent on your needs, are approximately one hour. The self-massage, taught at the initial treatment, is catered to your individual needs. It is a self-empowering massage performed daily by you in less than ten minutes. The self-massage brings healing as well as self-awareness to your healing process.
