Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy

What is Arvigo® Therapy?

The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Massage® is founded on an ancient Maya technique of a non-invasive, external abdominal massage. Arvigo Ttherapy stimulates circulation and blood flow within the abdominal area, supporting the body for optimal function of digestive and fertile health and wellness. It is a therapy that can be applied throughout every stage of a woman, man or childs life. Arvigo® Therapy incorporates a holistic approach to health and wellbeing. Only by treating the whole person on a physical, emotional and energetic level can true healing take place.

The technique originates from Central American Maya Abdominal Massage and was developed further by Dr. Rosita Arvigo. Dr. Rosita Arvigo is a Naprapathic physician, herbalist, international speaker and author. She has lived and studied with many traditional healers in Central America for over 40 years, the most notable of whom was Don Elijio Panti, the renowned Maya shaman of Belize. She combined her knowledge of anatomy, physiology and Naprapathy (study of muscles, ligaments, connective tissues similar to Osteopathy) with her extensive acquired background in traditional healing methods, and formu- lated the Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal erapy® Dr. Arvigo founded the Ix Chel Tropical Research Foundation which supports the traditions of Maya healers in Belize, helping to preserve and promote knowledge of sustainable organic cultivation as a substitute for destruction and depletion of the rainforest. Dr. Arvigo established the Arvigo Institute in 2000 which now trains healthcare professionals worldwide.

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.
