Abdominal & Pelvic Care

Abdominal & Pelvic Care -

For Women's Health: The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy™ (ATMAT) are founded on the ancient Mayan techniques of abdominal massage - an external, non-invasive manipulation that repositions internal organs that have shifted. This shifting causes the restricted flow of blood, lymph, nerves and energy – causing imbalance within the body. Clients seeks Maya Abdominal Therapy to assist with various symptoms and health concerns that can be alleviated with this technique.

Dr. Rosita Arvigo developed Maya Abdominal Therapy based on the over thirty years of training and experience she received in massage, naprapathy, herbology, nutrition, and emotional and spiritual healing. Dr. Arvigo based her therapy on her research and apprenticeship with one of the last traditional healers in Central America, Don Elijio Panti. Don Elijio instructed Dr. Arvigo in Maya Abdominal Massage, as well as traditional medicinal herbs which have come to represent her Rainforest Remedies herbal therapy.

The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy™ (ATMAT) address position and health of the pelvic and abdominal organs. The work is best known for the correction of the prolapsed, fallen, or tilted uterus in women and for the prevention and treatment of benign prostate enlargement in men, and for relief of many common digestive disorders in both men and women.

This massage technique applies anatomy, physiology, herbology and naprapathy, (the study of the ligaments, joints and muscles), with Ancient Maya healing techniques to address common female and male complaints. The technique works by relieving congestion and blockages to improve the flow of chi and fluids of the circulatory, lymphatic and nervous systems to prevent the progression of chronic disease symptomology.

Digestive and Emotional Benefits for Men and Women:

Individuals with digestive disorders benefit greatly from the application of these techniques.  Many of our common disorders such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Indigestion, Constipation, and heartburn are treated. Symptoms for which most people use antacids, muscle relaxants, and a variety of other medications may be helped with Maya Abdominal Massage.

Benefits for Women:

Uterine positiion and alignment  may be treated with Maya Abdominal Massage. Normally the uterus leans slightly over the bladder in the center of the pelvis, about one and a half inches above the pubic bone. It is held in this position by muscles, the vaginal wall and ligaments that attach it to the back, front, and sides of the pelvis. Uterine ligaments are made to stretch to accommodate a growing fetus inside and to move freely when the bladder or bowel is full. The ligaments and muscles can weaken and loosen, causing the uterus to fall downward, forward, backward or to either side.

A uterus in any of these positions is called tilted or prolapsed. Modern medicine has little or nothing to offer women with this problem. Options may include using the birth control pill, muscle relaxants, or surgery and women are generally told, "your uterus is tipped, but that is normal and don't worry about it." Yet women have a laundry list of physical and emotional symptoms that can be addressed and prevented with these simple, noninvasive massage techniques. When reproductive organs shift, they can constrict normal flow of blood and lymph, and disrupt nerve connections. Just a few extra ounces sitting on blood and lymph vessels can cause havoc throughout the different systems in the body. By shifting the uterus back into place, homeostasis, or the natural balance of the body, is restored in the pelvic area and the surrounding organs. Toxins are flushed and nutrients that help to tone tissue and balance hormones are restored to normal order. This is essential for a healthy menstrual cycle, healthy pregnancy, labor, and delivery.

Old adhesions from invasive treatments to the pelvic and abdominal area, including fibroid tumors, endometriosis, and cesarean delivery are diminished when addressed by uterine massage. In addition, digestion, urinary and bladder problems can be helped.
