Glow Therapies specialise in
Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy

What is Abdominal Therapy?

Abdominal Therapy is founded on ancient techniques of a non-invasive, external abdominal massage.

From digestive troubles, painful periods, fertility support, pelvic and prostate problems, to relief from chronic back and sacral issues, Abdominal Therapy can help you.

The massage stimulates circulation and blood flow within the abdominal area, supporting the body for optimal function of digestive and fertile health and wellness.  Abdominal Therapy incorporates a holistic approach to health and wellbeing.

Frequently asked Questions

How it works?

The body’s abdominal  organs can be shifted out of position for various reasons. This shift can then lead to restrictions in the proper flow of both blood and nerves. If the organs don’t receive optimal blood and nerve signals they won’t work to their best. Arvigo® Therapy works to help the body guide these organs into their optimum position with specialised knowledge and massage techniques.

The techniques not only focus on client’s physical health but also their emotional wellbeing, looking at alternative reasons for ill health and the Reichian Armour Rings in the abdomen.
