For Optimum Health and Well-Being

Maya Abdominal Massage is a non-invasive massage technique that guides the internal abdominal organs into their proper position for optimum health and well-being. Maya massage improves pelvic health by releasing physical and emotional congestion from the abdomen to improve the flow of energy and fluids of the circulatory, lymphatic and nervous systems to prevent the progression of chronic disease symptomology.

The technique applies anatomy, physiology, naprapathy (study of the ligaments, joints and muscles) and herbology with Ancient Maya healing techniques to address common female health concerns.

Dr. Rosita Arvigo DN, developed these techniques, after apprenticing with Don Elijio Panti, the last Traditional Maya Shaman in Belize, Central America, where she has lived for over 30 years. The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Massage™ combine modern science with traditional healing and wisdom to produce a holistic path to physical, emotional and spiritual well-being.

Benefits Of Maya Abdominal Massage

These gentle, nurturing techniques assist the body’s innate healing abilities. The Maya Abdominal Massage addresses the symptoms of a misplaced uterus and by guiding the uterus back into place the natural balance in the body is brought back to the pelvic area and surrounding organs. Toxins are flushed and nutrients that help tone tissue and balance hormones are restored. This is essential to ensure health and vitality during the many cycles of a woman’s life including healthy menstruation, pre-conception, pregnancy, peri-menopause and menopause.
