What is The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy? Developed by Dr. Rosita Arvigo, Maya Abdominal Therapy is a gentle, non-invasive form of massage done on the abdomen, low back, and sacrum. The techniques help reposition organs that have shifted and now disrupt the flow of blood, lymph, nerves, and qi. This disruption causes congestion and blocks the body's self-healing abilities which impacts fertility and the health of many body systems, including the endocrine system. Please visit Arvigo Institute for more information.
How does Maya Abdominal Therapy support fertility? By increasing circulation and balancing blood, qi, nerve, and hormonal flow to the abdomen, it can treat stress-related fertility issues, unexplained infertility, tubal blockages, ovarian cysts, endometriosis, irregular menstrual cycles, hormonal imbalances, abdominal adhesions from surgeries, and more. Even if you are not having fertility issues, doing Maya Abdominal Massage three months before trying to get pregnant can create a better internal environment for pregnancy and reposition the uterus to prepare you for a healthier birth.
The Maya work treats retroverted uterus, tilted uterus, and prolapsed uterus.
OTHER CONDITIONS: Maya Abdominal Massage can treat menstrual irregularies, menstrual pain, PMS, fibroids, ovarian cysts, hot flashes, insomnia, incontinence, cystitis, constipation, diarrhea, bloating, IBS, headaches, low back pain, varicose veins and more. It is also excellent for stress reduction since it stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system, which slows the heart rate and dilates blood vessels.

It can help raise low sperm count, improve morphology, and increase motility. And, it can help with digestive issues such as constipation, bloating, and acid reflux.
It supports prostate health and treats an enlarged prostate and urinary difficulties.
How quickly can I see benefits? Some benefit can happen almost immediately. You may experience stress reduction or a release of emotions that lighten your spirit. Depending on the severity of the condition, physiological changes may occur after the first treatment to 3-6 months. On average, I recommend self-care and/or office visits for a minimum of 3 months.
