The Arvigo Techniques utilize a gentle, non-invasive type of massage to the abdomen that addresses digestive, urinary, reproductive and structural pelvic health
Arvigo Maya Abdominal Therapy® is an ancient Maya healing system for the structural integrity of the pelvis and the organs that lie within (the womb, digestive, and urinary organs), as well as the mind and spirit. The Arvigo Techniques® unite traditional Maya bodywork, remedies, herbal wisdom, and spiritual healing practices to support the restoration of one's entire being to a state of wholeness - where the chu'lel (a Maya word for Life Force Energy) can flow freely. The techniques of this practice 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.
The Arvigo Techniques® utilize a gentle, non-invasive type of massage applied to the abdomen and low back, along with other optional techniques including pelvic steaming, spiritual bathing, herbal remedies, meditation and instruction in self-care. The Arvigo techniques® address reproductive, digestive, urinary and structural concerns that may have been caused by a shift in organ position or pelvic mal-alignment. Shifts and mal-alignment can be caused by physical trauma, surgery, intense exercise, poor posture, cysts, tumors, etc. Shifted organs and a misaligned pelvis can block the flow of blood, nerve signals, lymphatic fluids, and chu'lel (qi), causing stagnation, congestion and blockages that prevent the body from maintaining balance and wellness and affect its natural ability to heal. These blockages and mal-alignments impact reproductive, urinary, and bowel health. The Arvigo Techniques® can help to reposition the organs and pelvis - relieving pelvic stagnation and congestion, and returning it to its natural state of flow.
The Arvigo bodywork techniques and herbal remedies address pelvic instability, abdominal scars and adhesions, infertility, menstrual conditions, fibroids, endometriosis, PCOS, organ prolapse, urinary incontinence, constipation, GERD, IBS, Crohn’s disease, and chronic pain. Whereas, the Spiritual healing aspect of this tradition can support the release of all manner of traumas and energetic issues that prevent the process of releasing emotions held in the womb. They can also assist the integration of healing. Used regularly, Arvigo Maya Abdominal Therapy® and self-care can also be used for illness prevention, helping one to avoid structural and physiological issues of the pelvis from occurring in the first place.
