Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Massage ®
Becoming a certified practitioner in Arvigo Maya Abdominal Massage therapies has given me newfound insight into the power of restoring the body to its natural balance.
I've long felt that there is a role for the body to play in healing itself. My appreciation for natural health and the body's potential for self-healing came full circle when I studied the techniques established by Dr. Rosita Arvigo based on her experiences with mentor Don Elijio Panti, the great Maya Shaman of Belize.
These techniques aim to stimulate the blood, lymph, nerve and qi energy flow to the body's organs in an effort to aid in the restoration of the body's balance.
Benefits for Women
While Maya Abdominal Massage can be utilized by both men and women, my training and services are focused on the particular benefits to women.
Inspired by her work with her mentor, Arvigo developed techniques that speak to restoring balance to a woman's center; Don Elijio believed this to be a woman's uterus.
Over time the muscles and ligaments that women's bodies depend upon for proper positioning of the uterus and ideal functioning of the pelvic and abdominal area, the digestive system, and the bladder, can loosen and weaken. This reduction in strength can cause the uterus to shift in direction—forward, backward, or downward. If in one of these unnatural positions, the uterus is called prolapsed or tilted.
Causes of a displaced uterus are usually one of the following :
- Wearing high heel shoes
- Running on cement surfaces
- Injury to the sacrum or coccyx
- Misalignment of the pelvic bones
- Chronic spasms in the lower back and sacrum
- Emotional armouring from rape, abuse or incest
- Career in Dance, aerobics or sports
- Chronic coughing
- Surgical errors
- Walking barefoot on cold floors or wet grass
- Carrying heavy weights during periods
- Not enough care during pregnancies, delivery & postpartum
- Repeated pregnancies close together
- Difficult deliveries
- Aging and gravity’s pull on ligaments
