WHAT IS MAYAN ABDOMINAL MASSAGE?

PRESERVING MAYAN HEALING

This ancient technique has been used by the Mayan people for centuries and to our great benefit, has been revived and kept alive by Rosita Arvigo. Rosita is a traditional healer, doctor of Naprapathy (the study of muscles, ligaments, connective tissues similar to Osteopathy), herbalist, and ethono-botanist who apprenticed under Mayan Healer Don Elijio Panti (1893-1996) and Miss Hortence Robinson (1928-2009), Mayan Traditional Midwife, since 1970.

Before He died at the age of 103, Don Elijio asked Rosita to take care of his people and promise that the healing ways of the Mayan would survive into the future. Rosita continues his work in a Rainforest in Belize and has trained hundreds of others around the world. Today, Rosita is scaling back on her teaching, and relies on those she has personally trained to continue to spread the knowledge of the Mayan healing ways.

Arvigo Technique of Mayan Abdominal Therapy® incorporates a holistic approach to health and wellbeing.

LIFE IS HARD ON THE BODY

As we all know, the abdominal region houses many of the organs which can become impaired and operate inefficiently or not at all due to the many stressors of life. Things like surgery, injury, poor diet, pregnancy, stress and repetitive activities can alter the flow of lymph, blood, nerve, and chi (energy). The parts of the body most affected by the improper flow of these bodily systems are the digestive system and the reproductive system. Scar tissue from surgery or injury adds further complication as the body and systems become very restricted and rigid.

Scar tissue on the abdomen that can be addressed with Arvigo Techniques of Mayan Abdominal Therapy.

Only by treating the whole person on a physical, emotional and energetic level can true healing take place.

THE BODY'S NATURAL HEALING CAPACITY

The Arvigo Technique of Maya Abdominal Therapy® is performed externally by gently guiding and supporting organs back into their optimal position, allowing for improved functioning for optimal health and wellness. This 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 nerves in the abdomen. They address and can release emotional and energetic tension from the abdomen. This assists to prevent the progression of chronic disease symptomology while improving the body’s ability to self repair and balance.

The body’s inherent ability to be self regulating, self healing, and self regenerating is known as homeostasis or balance within, first recognized by Hippocrates. As a natural healer, Jennifer Merritts works in the realm of the divine science, removing the obstructions and deterrents to natures healing force. She does not cure disease, she assists in the flow of fluids and energy to nourish and repair the organs and systems naturally.
