"The uterus is the woman's core, if it is out of balance her whole life is out of balance - physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually".

Don Elijo Panti



"The female pelvis is a powerhouse of energy transformation, the very throne of creation through which

universal creative energy patterns course and flow.

This depends on balance within

the system".

"The Mayan Abdominal / Arvigo massage experience with Marinella was so nourishing for me, on every level. 

I felt truly honoured and special in my womanhood, as Marinella discussed firstly with me what my body rhythms are, and what my body is needing. Then she carried the massage using wonderful warm oil, all the time keeping me warm and cared-for. The abdominal massage part is so gentle yet energising and centring! Marinella showed me how to do this for myself at home and I now perform it on myself most days, and find it a really lovely practice to do for myself at bedtime, or in the morning as a way to energise. It feels good to be giving my womb-space this attention, as a way of giving back to this wonderful body of mine that has birthed 3 children and menstruated for 34 years, as I draw near to completing my menstrual phase of life. I can imagine this Arvigo process would be hugely beneficial to any woman at any phase of life, for honouring and consciously connecting with her feminine essence." Gina




The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy® (ATMAT) is an ancient Maya technique of abdominal, sacral and back massage, handed down by mesoamerican healers, medicine men and midwives for hundreds of years. The Maya believed there was no separation between the body, mind and emotions and this technique reflects this rich healing tradition in which you are taken care of on every level. The techniques were developed by Dr. Rosita Arvigo based on her ten years apprenticeship with the Maya healer Don Elijio Panti and her own education, training, and research as a naprapathic physician. 

You can read the fascinating journey of Rosita's apprenticeship with Don Elijo Panti in her book Sastun and you can read more about Arvigo Therapy on the official website, where you can also find all the certified practitioners worldwide.

Arvigo Therapy® supports and enanches reproductive and digestive health for women, men and children and 
comprises of a deep but nurturing abdominal, sacral and back massage with external, non invasive manipulation that repositions internal organs that have shifted from either trauma, pathology, heavy lifting, physical activity or general daily wear and tear on the body thereby restricting the flow of blood, lymph, nerve and chi (our energy or life force - also known as prana in the Ayurvedic Yoga tradition, ki for the Japanese tradition or ch'ulel in the Maya tradition). When applied Arvigo Therapy® can guide internal abdominal organs into their proper position for optimum health and well being. The technique works by relieving congestion and blockages to improve the flow of chi and fluids of the circulatory, lymphatic and nervous systems to prevent the progression of chronic disease symptoms. 
Like other natural healing, Arvigo Therapy®
seeks to restore our body to its natural balance and inner harmony and key to this process is daily self-care - so from your first appointment you will learn the
Maya self care massage so that you can be an active part of your own healing journey.

Maya Abdominal Therapy for Preconception Health
The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy
 can support women as they prepare their bodies for conception, helping to optimise conception with a holistic approach. We encourage a three month period of uterine rest and self care where you are actively avoiding conception to prepare the uterus and your body for pregnancy. However, the work can also be received while a woman is actively open to conception. The best time to receive Maya Abdominal Therapy for Fertility is between menstruation and ovulation. The massage and its supportive modalities can also support you if you are going through IVF or other assisted reproductive technology treatments.

It is also highly advised for your partner to receive the treatment at the same time, whether you are trying to conceive naturally or not. 


Maya Abdominal Therapy for Postnatal Recovery
The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy®
 can be of great support after the birth of your baby to encourage the uterus and all the organs back to their optimal position and to fully clear the uterus of any remaining residues from the birth. It is also of great support after a miscarriage/termination.

During pregnancy your uterus expands to accommodate the abundance of new life growing inside you and this causes other abdominal organs to shift their position. After the birth the uterus shrinks back to its original size and this can create more rearrangement of the organs in the abdominal cavity, bringing the whole of your body-mind system out of balance, during an already quite vulnerable time of readjustment and change that the immediate postpartum is. The uterus itself can change position after the birth, whether you have had a vaginal or Caesarian birth, and this can be the cause of postnatal prolapse, lower back pain, heavy bleeding (once your period comes back after or during breastfeeding), fatigue and so on. It is important that all the organs are in their optimal position to allow for your overall balance and well-being.
