Maya Arvigo Abdominal Massage
The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy are founded on an ancient Maya technique of Abdominal Massage. This technique is performed externally by gently guiding and supporting organs back into their optimal positions, allowing for improved functioning for optimal health and wellness.
Arvigo Therapy is best known for addressing misalignment or congestion in the reproductive organs, 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, nerves in the abdomen. It addresses and can release emotional and energetic tension form the abdomen. This assists to prevent the progression of chronic disease symptomology while improving the body’s ability to SELF REPAIR and BALANCE.
Zone therapy is a Holistic form of therapy working directly on the feet and ankles. It helps to normalize digestion/assimilation, lymph and blood circulation, hormone balance, elimination, the autonomic nervous system, and is used for stress reduction.
Cranio sacral therapy is a hands-on approach that involves listening to the client’s subtle rhythms and any patterns of restriction. The emphasis of treatment is to encourage and enhance the body’s own self-healing and self-regulating capabilities.
Reiki literally translated means ‘universal life force energy’, the energy of life, and the encompassing and unconditional energy of love. It works to restore mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being by removing blockages and restoring balance. Reiki can be used on acute injury, inflammation, and surgery, and is especially effective on joint issues such as arthritis.
Visceral Unwinding works directly with the organs and the fascial sac that engulfs each of the viscera. This sheath is what connects the cranial system with each organ. The organs in our body move constantly because of diaphragmatic, peristalsis, and cardiac activity. With Visceral Unwinding, we work with the mobility (the movement primary following respiratory breath) and motility (the internal/external rotation around an axis for paired organs and in flexion or extension with single organs. In a healthy body, the organs moved in a synchronized manner which visceral unwinding helps to restore.
