Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy®

About this Modality: 

The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy® are founded on the ancient Maya technique of abdominal massage, and Dr. Rosita’s extensive background in healing modalities. This technique is performed externally by gently guiding and supporting organs back into their optimal position allowing for optimal functioning and improved health and wellness.

Arvigo® Therapy is best known for addressing misalignment or congestion in the reproductive organs of both men and women, as well as many common digestive disorders.  The techniques effectively alleviate tissue congestion and organ constriction to improve the vital flows of energy, blood, lymph, and nerve impulses in the abdomen.  They address and can release emotional and energetic tension from the abdomen.  This assists in preventing the progression of chronic disease symptomology while improving the body’s ability to self-repair and balance.

The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy® support and enhance health and wellness throughout the life cycle for women, men, and children.

The following are the most common symptoms and conditions that Arvigo® Therapy may help address:

Dr. Rosita Arvigo, DN, is a naprapathic physician and master herbalist who has lived and studied with traditional healers in Central America for more than 30 years. She apprenticed with the renowned Maya Shaman Don Eljio Panti for 10 years until his passing in 1996 at the age of 103. Dr. Arvigo learned traditional pregnancy care from Miss Hortence Robinson, a well-known herbal midwife in Belize. She combined her knowledge of anatomy, physiology and naprapathy (study of muscles, ligaments, connective tisues) with her extensive acquired background in traditional healing methods, and formulated the Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy®.  Dr. Arvigo established the Arvigo Institute in 2000 and trains healthcare professionals worldwide.
