Arvigo Techniques™ of Maya Abdominal Therapy was developed by Dr. Rosita Arvigo, a naprapath — clinicians who specialize in aligning connective tissue — and has spent the past 30 some years living in the heart of Belize’s rainforest. Dr. Arvigo was an apprentice of Don Elijio Panti, who, when he died at the age of 103, was recognized in his New York Times obituary as “the last Mayan master healer in Belize.”
Mayan abdominal massage was developed by midwives and local healers to bring relief from a variety of uncomfortable symptoms: discomforts like constipation, abdominal bloating, fertility, PMS, menopause, urinary incontinence, to pelvic pain and recovery from childbirth.
The Arvigo Techniques focuses on slow, deep massage that releases muscles in the entire abdomen. While emphasizing the abdomen, Arvigo Techniques aim to improve the normal flow of blood, lymph, and energy throughout the whole body. In addition to massage, the Arvigo Techniques incorporates self massage, steam baths and heat packs to treat the abdomen.
