Arvigo Technique of Maya Abdominal Therapy®
What is Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy®?
The Arvigo Techniques of Abdominal Therapy® (ATMAT) is a bodywork modality working with the pelvic and abdominal organs to promote optimal positioning and health. The techniques address symptoms such as painful or irregular menstruation, fertility challenges, endometriosis, PMS, frequent infections, difficult menopause, displaced uterus, and so much more. In addition to supporting overall wellbeing, Maya Abdominal Therapy is also incredibly beneficial throughout the preconception, pregnancy, and postpartum phases. Through enhancing blood and nutrient flow, mitigating pregnancy discomfort, optimizing babies position, and gently guiding the uterus back into place after birth, adding ATMAT treatments from preconception through postpartum can drastically improve the pregnancy, birth, and postpartum experience. Maya Abdominal Massage was developed by Dr. Rosita Arvigo after more than three decades of research and study with her mentor, Don Elijio Panti, in the jungles of Belize. The massage is a non-invasive, external therapy method that guides the digestive and reproductive organs back into their proper positions. Working the pelvic and reproductive organs will help neutralize the position of the uterus decreasing stagnation of blood, lymph, chi, and nerves and bring circulation to the lower abdomen and ovaries improving the hormonal feedback system. It is also used to improve digestive function and help balance any abdominal congestion or stagnation, all greatly enhancing overall health and well-being. The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Massage helps to relieve many pelvic and abdominal conditions typically treated by drugs or surgery. Additionally, the Arvigo® massage is renowned for enhancing fertility in both men and women. Through mitigating stagnation in the abdomen and pelvis, improving blood flow to the ovaries and uterus, as well as increasing the communication of the hormonal systems of the body, ATMAT improves the quality of sperm, eggs and the general mental and physical health of the parents-to-be.

What clients are saying...
"Selah is the best! Every time I get a massage or Maya Abdominal work done from her I always feel like a new person! She makes you feel super comfortable and really gets to know you and really knows how to read a body to know where the sings and places are that my body needs the most help. I’ve never met a massage therapist that is so good at knowing how to make me fell better without me even saying where the problem is. Her intuition is amazing. Her abdominal work has helped my feminine cycles so much. I no longer have cramps every time I have a cycle. I can go to work and I no longer get nauseous from my cramps. I can finally live my life even while on my period. I’ve always had a very sensitive stomach and Selah has made it so my stomach can relax enough to digest food. Basically she’s amazing and has changed my life, I will never go to another massage therapist again! Thank you Selah!" - Emily -
