All cultures used some form of belly massage. All mums know to gently rub what hurts to soothe. The ancient Maya techniques of abdominal massage are external non-invasive manipulation that reposition internal organs that may have shifted, thus restricting the flow of blood, lymph, nerves and Qi.
What is known as Maya Abdominal Therapy addresses the position and health of the pelvic and abdominal organs. It is best known for the correction of the prolapsed, fallen, or tilted uterus and for the prevention and treatment of benign prostate enlargement in men, and for relief of many common digestive disorders.
Rosita Arvigo – Based on over thirty years of training and experience in massage, naprapathy, herbology, and spiritual healing, Dr. Rosita Arvigo developed the combination of these techniques which now bear her name.
Incorporating a holistic approach to health care that includes massage, herbs, nutrition and emotional and spiritual healing. Dr. Arvigo believes that with any natural healing technique, these areas must be simultaneously addressed to promote optimal health.
Dr. Arvigo learned these techniques from her mentor, Don Elijio Panti, the great Maya Shaman of Belize, Central America with whom she apprenticed for ten years. Don Elijio believed that a woman’s center is her uterus. “If a woman’s uterus is out of balance, so is she,” he would say. Midwives and healers of Central America agree that most female troubles are caused by the wandering womb. Don Elijio passed away in 1996 at the age of 103. Rosita also studied with Hortence Robinson, a traditional midwife and herbalist of Belize who began delivering babies when she was only 13.

Having discovered this amazing body of work 5 years ago, I have added to this. The beginning of all life – Qi and lymph flow. Whilst taking out what blocks perfect flows – we at least do not start a cycle of replication.
What have started the problems needs undoing. Your womb’s resilience needs addressing. Her NOT slipping back into correct positioning is the key. The ligaments and their health and ease are crucial and of the absolute importance. For my 40+ years of working with acupuncture and teaching at all practitioner levels, designing my own courses and texts, I know that when we clear what prevents the body healing itself. Gentling you and her better.
