Abdominal Therapy also known as Arvigo® Therapy
Fertility massage, Abdominal-sacral or Maya Massage
Arvigo® Therapy was 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.
The techniques help to restore the body to it’s natural balance by correcting the position of pelvic organs that often become shifted out of alignment by day to day experiences, falls, or physical stresses, causing restrictions in the flow of blood, lymph, nerve and energy.
Treatments involve a comprehensive assessment of your past and current health, a hands-on massage treatment over your belly and lower back, and traching you the self care practices to be able to a mini-treatment for yourself at home.
“Reiki” (ray-key) is the Japanese word for ‘universal life energy’, and is a system of natural healing founded by Mikao Usui in the early 20th century.
It’s based on the understanding that we live in a world of energy that nourishes and maintains all living things. When this energy flows uninterrupted there is balance and harmony within and around us, and we experience a sense of well being.
The sessions involve being fully clothed under a blanket, while I work with light touch from your head to your feet, allowing your body to take in or release any energy it needs. I often combine Reiki with deep guided relaxation and with Arvigo® Therapy to help you move in to the deepest level of relaxation possible.
It’s very lovely as a stand alone treatment too, and my go-to for the two week wait after IVF and early pregnancy.
It basically feels like a bubble of peace and tranquility. Bliss.
Counselling & emotional support
I find it’s so helpful with both Arvigo® treatments and Reiki to be able to have time to talk too. To really listen to what’s been happening for you, and hold space for every bit of it, so that your head and heart know that everything they need has been heard and taken care of too. It lets the body work integrate it on a deeper level, and allows you to relax even more.
It’s a lovely grounding combination that leaves people at the end of the session feeling lighter and brighter and taken care of at every level.
The way I work is always totally flexible and we always start every session seeing what feels most right…sometimes it’s a little bit of everything, and sometimes one bit is calling more loudly than any other.
No set plan, no ‘it’s got to look like this’, just time to be able to tune in and see what’s most needed & most healing on that particular day.
