Arvigo (belly) Therapy® is gentle and non-invasive and combines the best of old world and new world healing techniques to work on the belly, sacrum, back, and coccxy like no other body work modality. It is steeped in ancient Mayan knowledge and was put together by a nacropothist from the USA named Rosita Arvigo after a 13 year apprenticeship with one of the last great Mayan Hemen (highest ranking of the traditional medicine men), named Don Ellijio and traditional Midwives such as Ms. Hortense. Rosita was taught by Don Ellijio because she promised to take care of his people long after he was gone and keep his ancient healing technique alive. Rosita has kept good on her promise and has added to the foundational technique modern day healing techniques for modern bodies. This therapy is non-invasive, done directly over skin, sheeting or clothing and works to gently massage tissues and organs into optimal positions and alignment. When the organs in our belly (this includes both the digestive and reproductive organs) are off, our whole life is off and very rarely do we get touch there. In fact many of us are disconnected from our belly's, something very true, especially for woman. You can find out more about Avigo Therapy® by going to the home website: www.ArvigoTherapy.com or continue reading below.
The areas worked during a typical session include the whole belly from the pubic bone all the way up to the tips of the ribs, back including sometimes neck (especially if headaches are an issue), hips, sacrum, and tail bone. There is leg pulling and shaking involved too but everything can be modified to meet client needs. The only things that can not be modified for are pregnancy and any kind of abdominal mesh (sometimes used for hernias), so please make sure you are current on all medical records before coming in and let your practitioner know of any health concerns.

And this Therapy is great for pre-pregnancy preparation and post-pregnancy recovery, as this therapy works directly with the uterus helping it to move into optimal position for conception, pregnancy, and birth. Arvigo practitioners have found about 30-40% of all infertility cases are due to a mechanical issue with the uterus often easily corrected with a treatment or two. Arvigo® Therapy also helps to place the uterus back into optimal position after birth and is safe for IVF, helping to increase IVF success rates.
The ancient Mayan believed that the uterus was like a second heart and mind for the woman and if a woman's uterus was not in proper placement in the body her whole life was off as a reflection. In the Arvigo practice we know that the uterus is a strong and muscular organ that when not in proper placement can case all kinds of issues inside the body such as constipation (especially around one's period), painful periods, back pain during that time of month, infertility and even leg and feet issues long term. And the uterus is important to keeping the ecology of a woman's internal organs in place as it helps to hold up the bladder and keep the colon positioned correctly throughout life, so even if a woman is done having children or doesn't want children her uterus is important and still has a role to play.
