Maya Abdominal Massage for Women

For thousands of years, Maya abdominal massage has been used all around the world to treat ailments of the reproductive and digestive systems. The technique has been passed down, generation after generation, through a string of healers, midwives, and shaman. This allows the development of many different methods of abdominal massage. Our staff at CNY Healing Arts uses the technique as practiced by Chicago native Dr. Rosita Arvigo, master herbalist and naprapathic physician.

Her methods, The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy, are inspired by traditional Mayan healing techniques and are based on her apprenticeship with Mayan healer Don Elijio Panti, as well as over 35 years of field and laboratory experience as a doctor. In short, these methods seek to restore our bodies to their natural state of balance.

Understand that, over time, your organs may shift place within your body and could be restricting the flow of blood, nerves, lymph fluid, and chi energy. Licensed practitioners of The Arvigo Techniques aim to help guide internal organs into correct position, especially those involved in reproduction. Maya Abdominal Massage also works to relieve congestion and/or blockage of the internal organs, thereby helping to restore health to the pelvic region.

For women, Maya abdominal massage is performed on the abdomen and pelvis to help:

  • Bring the uterus into proper position
