The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy®

Ix Chel, Maya Triple Goddess

Ix Chel, Maya Triple Goddess

The Arvigo® techniques were developed by Dr. Rosita Arvigo, DN. based on her apprenticeship with the Maya healer Don Elijio Panti and her own education, training, and research as a naprapathic physician. Rosita's lifework, THE ARVIGO TECHNIQUES OF MAYA ABDOMINAL THERAPY®, help to restore the body to its natural balance through a series of non-invasive, external massage techniques, which help to guide the internal abdominal and pelvic organs back into their proper positions for optimum health and well being. 

The techniques work by clearing congestion and blockages, releasing physical and emotional congestion, from the abdomen and pelvic bowl. This, in turn, improves the flow of the qi and fluids of the circulatory, lymphatic and nervous systems and prevents the progression of chronic disease.
