What is Arvigo?

The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy® (ATMAT) 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 position, allowing for improved functioning for optimal health and wellness. Arvigo® Therapy is best known for addressing misalignment or congestion in the reproductive organs of both men and women, 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 and nerves in the abdomen. They address and can release emotional and energetic tension from the abdomen.
Healers have known about and practiced for thousands of years the therapeutic treatment of abdominal massage for the reproductive and digestive systems. But modern medicine has discarded it in this century. Throughout history, healers in Central America have used these techniques in village huts and healing temples. The Arvigo Techniques represent an unbroken chain of knowledge handed down from generation to generation of midwives, healers and shamans. 
The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy® support and enhance health and wellness throughout the life cycle for women, men, and children and support the body’s natural healing capacity. 

Additionally, for women it is a beautiful experience to connect with your belly and your womb, using your breath and feel your feelings in a safe and loving space.
It is a wonderful therapy that supports women of all ages at physical, emotional and spiritual levels.

Dr.Rosita Arvigo

Dr. Rosita Arvigo, has lived and studied with traditional healers in Central America for more than 30 years and studied the natural science of anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, naprapathy, massage, herbalism and spiritual healing. She apprenticed with the renowned Maya Shaman Don Eljio Panti for 10 years until his passing.
Don Elijio was famous for his simple uterine massage techniques that attracted women from all corners of Central America to him humble clinic of broken-down thatch huts in San Antonio, Belize. He taught that the uterus is a woman’s center, and if it is out of balance, she will be physically, emotionally and spiritually out of balance. He was strong and hard working until the age of 101, and passed away at the age of 103, certainly a grand testament to his healing plants, his prayers and his sense of humor.

Dr. Arvigo also studied with Miss Hortence Robinson, a well-known herbal midwife and village healer in Belize. During her childhood in Mexican chicle camps, she befriended Mayan healers who taught her the healing plants of the jungle. Her grandmothers were midwives. Young Hortence delivered her first baby at the age of thirteen. She was in a hospital ward where she was undergoing treatment for asthma. Her first client was brought to the hospital for medical attention because of difficult labor. Before the nurses could arrive, young Hortence had already delivered the infant on a gurney in the hospital corridor.
Dr. Rosita Arvigo combined her knowledge of anatomy, physiology and naprapathy (study of muscles, ligaments, connective tisues) with her extensive acquired background in traditional healing methods, and formulated the Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy®, which now carry her name.

This modality combines a holistic approach of healthcare, which combines massage, anatomy and physiology, herbal science, nutrition and emotional and spiritual healing. Dr.Arvigo believes that, as with any natural healing technique, we support the body to heal itself. “We do not cure disease. We assist the vital flow of fluids and energy to nourish and repair the organs and systems naturally. Woman and men suffer needlessly from a barrage of physical complaints that can easily be corrected by returning the uterus and prostate to their proper function and position”

Mijn persoonlijke ervaring

“Tension in my belly, feeling bloated and digestive problems, taking birth control and not getting my period back after stop taking it, bladder and yeast infections, hormonal imbalances, cramping and painful periods… from a young age I have been my own study on my path to balance in my cycle and health. Still this is a daily task, I continue to learn, explore and get inspired to share this treasure with you, dear women!
Through breathwork and yoga, I experienced improvement in my digestion and I always had the wish to learn more about the abdominal organs and discomforts of women and their cycles. When Arvigo therapy crossed my path, I discovered one of the most beautiful modalities that exist. Becoming aware of your cycle, uturus, organs and overal education, plus daily self-care massage that you will learn and additional supportive modalities, it’s a gift!
Because I was and I am my own study, I can share from my own experience. I also had the pleasure to meet Dr.Rosita Arvigo in the jungle of Belize, a magical experience to be there and in her presence! I recommend every women to experience a Arvigo session”

  • “My menstruation is since this treatment in balance again. The last 2 were from the book! I am happy that I received this massage and continue spreading the magic!”
