Arvigo™ Mayan Abdominal Massage (also known as Arvigo™ Therapy) is a technique originally used in Central and South America to treat fertility-related issues, digestive disorders and hormonal imbalances.
The practitioner uses their hands to affect external and non-invasive manipulation of the muscles, fascia, ligaments and internal organs of the abdominal cavity, allowing the effect of re-positioning ligaments and organs that may have shifted out of place (prolapse) and restoring optimal flow of lymph, blood, innervation and energy (also known as ‘chi’ or ‘prana’).
The massage was developed by Dr Rosita Arvigo, a naturapathic physician – a holistic approach to medicine that focusses on the health of the fascia, or connective tissues – and has the unique aspect that as part of the session you will learn a self-care technique which allows you to continue the treatment at home. This encouragement to take an active part in our own health gives the potential to feel more empowered and in control of our lives and bodies.
Before a first session, you will be sent a detailed medical questionnaire to complete and this will form the basis of our preliminary consultation (you do not have to answer any sections that you are uncomfortable with). The massage itself lasts for around 45 minutes and then the rest of the session will be spent in making sure that you have the skills necessary to continue the self-care regime at home. (I will also email you the instructions for doing this so you don’t have to worry about remembering everything at the time!)
Typical reasons why you might wish to have an Arvigo™ session could be to boost fertility or prepare for pregnancy; to deal with menopausal issues or other hormonal imbalances; to help the discomfort of having heavy, painful periods; to regulate sparse or irregular periods; to give a natural ‘lift’ post-pregnancy or to improve or prevent prolapses; to promote a ‘happy-gut’ or address gastro-intestinal ailments; to reduce or relieve the discomfort caused by fybroids or endometriosis. On a holistic level, the pelvic bowl is also the container for our creativity, the place where we birth projects, whether or not we have a physical womb. Optimising the energy flow in this area of the body gives an energetic boost to our ability to manifest our dreams and projects in the world.
