The Arvigo Techniques of Mayan 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 of both men and women, 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.

What to expect during a session
Comprehensive review of your past and present healthcare needs focusing on reproductive and digestive health
Upper and lower abdominal therapy including Tuina, a style of east asian massage, and acupressure
This can have the potential benefit of helping to ALIGN reproductive and abdominal organs to optimal position, IMPROVE circulation to organs, and PROMOTE vital flow to support the body’s inherent healing capacity.
Evaluation of pelvic alignment and application of bodywork to improve pelvic alignment when indicated
Recommendations of complimentary supportive modalities such as nutritional and herbal therapies to support your health and wellness
Your Arvigo practitioner will work with you to address your specific needs. Typically, 2-3 professional sessions as a minimum are required to address most conditions. Clients who perform their self-care tools on a routine basis report an improvement in their symptoms.
This is a powerful manual therapy which focuses on abdominal and pelvic health. By encouraging proper alignment, circulatory, and lymphatic flow it is able to improve a wide range of symptoms including irregular menstruation, prolapse, cysts, fibroids, difficulty conceiving, low back pain, digestive issues, anxiety, restricted breathing due to tension, and headaches. It has become well known in particular for supporting fertility and IUI/IVF. I really do love this work and find that most who come to see me, even for acupuncture benefit greatly from having a few of these sessions. While acupuncture is very accumulative and you start to notice changes after a few sessions, it is common to notice a difference even after the first Arvigo session. If there is enough time in your first session you will even learn practices that you can do at home!
