The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Massage ™

What is The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Massage ™?

The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Massage ™ is a non-invasive, external, massage technique. It guides internal abdominal organs into their proper position (with a focus on aligning the uterus) for optimum health and well-being. Maya massage improves organ function by releasing physical and emotional congestion from the abdomen. This massage is effective for people of all genders.

The technique applies anatomy, physiology, herbology and naprapathy (study of the ligaments, joints and muscles), with ancient Maya healing techniques to address common complaints. The technique works by relieving congestion and blockages to improve the flow of chi and fluids of the circulatory, lymphatic, and nervous systems to prevent the progression of chronic disease symptomology.

The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy® were developed by Dr. Rosita Arvigo as a result of her long term apprenticeship with the late Maya H’Men (Doctor-Priest), Don Elijio Panti of Belize and midwife Hortense Robinson, who was known as Mil Secretos (keeper of a thousand secrets).

The Arvigo Techniques® bring together bodywork, traditional remedies, herbal knowledge and spiritual healing to support the restoration of the body and being to a state of wholeness - where the chu’lel (a Maya word for life force energy) can flow freely.
