Dr. Rosita Arvigo’s Techniques of Maya Abdominal Massage are based on an ancient Mayan healing method: applying external manipulation to the abdomen to facilitate blood and lymph flow, nerve conduction and Qi, (or Chu-lel, as it is know to the Mayan people) movement throughout the body. Maya Abdominal Massage (MAM) helps reposition reproductive organs thereby reducing symptoms of a displaced uterus or swollen prostate, which may manifest as fibroids, endometriosis, infertility, low back pain, painful menses, IBS, acid reflux, constipation, incontinence, prolapsed uterus and bladder, and over 30 other symptoms. It is helpful after abdominal surgeries such as hysterectomy, cesarean births and exploratory surgeries.

This two and a half day workshop will teach the participant about the anatomy and physiology of normal abdominal organs and structures, and what happens when they become imbalanced. Signs, symptoms, causes and the related pathologies will be included in this program. This modality incorporates a holistic approach to health care which includes massage, nutritional considerations, guided meditation, emotional and spiritual healing, as well as herbal healing remedies. Dr. Arvigo believes that with any natural healing technique, these areas must be addressed simultaneously to promote optimal health.

Completion of this program will qualify the participant to perform the abdominal massage on themselves ONLY, and will prepare the licensed practitioner to go on to
