Dr. Rosita Arvigo, developer of the Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Massage, learned her healing methods from the great Maya Shaman of Belize, Don Elijio Panti. He believed that the center of a woman is her uterus, and if it is out of balance, so is she.
Maya Abdominal Massage aims to improve the position and vitality of your pelvic and abdominal organs. Among other benefits, the technique is renowned for correction of the prolapsed, fallen, or tilted uterus.
In normal position, a woman’s uterus is held in the center of her pelvis (leaning slightly over her bladder) by muscles, the vaginal wall, and ligaments that secure it to all sides of her pelvis. When a woman undergoes pregnancy, her uterine ligaments stretch to accommodate the growing fetus.
If these ligaments and muscles become weakened or loosened, it could cause a woman’s uterus to shift out of place – downward, forward, backward, or to either side. A uterus in any of these positions is commonly called tilted or prolapsed.
When the uterus shifts place, it can cut off the regular flow of blood and lymph fluids, as well as disrupt functioning of the nervous system. These constrictions can wreak havoc on a woman’s body, affecting her digestive and urinary tracts, reproduction, circulatory system, lymph nodes, muscular and skeletal systems, and more.
Modern medicine has little to nothing to offer these women. Options may include a birth control pill, muscle relaxants, or surgery, but there are always potential side effects to these treatments. Maya Abdominal Massage is an entirely non-invasive therapy that works to shift the uterus back into place, thereby restoring balance and health to a woman’s body and life.
This unique method of massage helps to flush out toxins and to restore the balance of nutrients that are essential for healthy pregnancy, labor, and delivery. It also addresses past scarring due to invasive practices like cesarean delivery and the treatment of fibroid tumors and endometriosis.
Women who have a prolapsed uterus may suffer from any of these physical or emotional effects, these being just a few:
- Fertility complications
- Painful sexual intercourse
- Lower back or pelvic pain
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Gastritis, or Chrohn’s Disease
- Chronic constipation, diarrhea, indigestion, or heartburn
- Painful or irregular periods or ovulation
- Chronic miscarriages
- Premature deliveries
- Bladder infections or frequent urination
- Numbness in the legs and feet, especially when standing still for a while
- Uterine Polyps, Fibroids, or infections
