The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy (Supporting your Pre & Perinatal Wellness)

“The female pelvis is a powerhouse of energy transformation; the very throne of creation through which universal creative energy patterns course and flow.” –Rosita Arvigo, DN


What is it?

The Arvigo Techniques of Abdominal Therapy ® are founded on an ancient Maya Technique of Abdominal Massage. This technique is performed externally by gently guiding and supporting organs back into their optimal position, allowing for improved functioning for optimal health and wellness.


Arvigo ® Therapy is best known for addressing misalignment or congestion in the reproductive organs, as well as many common digestive disorders. The techniques effectively alleviate tissue congestion and organ constriction to improve the vital flows of energy, blood, lymph and nerves in the abdomen. They address and can release emotional and energetic tension from the abdomen. This assists to prevent the progression of chronic disease symptomology while improving the body’s ability to self repair and balance.

The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy ® support and enhance health and wellness throughout the life cycle of women and children.

Arvigo ® Therapy benefits women throughout the child-bearing years by enhancing fertility and conception, supporting structural changes and alleviating discomfort, providing optimal birth position for baby thereby easing labor, birth and post partum recovery.

At your initial session, you will be taught SELF-CARE MASSAGE which adds to the therapeutic benefits of your session when you perform it at home.
