There are many names connected to this teaching. Mayan Abdominal Massage, Maya Massage, Womb Massage, Uterine Massage, Uterine Lift, Abdominal Therapy, Arvigo Massage, Infertility Massage and so many more. All of these techniques arise from Dr. Rosita Arvigo and her relationship with her teacher Don Elijio Panti. I have had the honor to have have studied with Rosita and am proud to of be a member of her school, The Abdominal Therapy Collective.
Maya Abdominal Massage is a non-invasive, external, massage technique. It guides internal abdominal organs into their proper position for optimum health and well being. The technique works by relieving congestion and blockages to improve the flow of chi and fluids of the circulatory, lymphatic and nervous systems to prevent the progression of chronic disease symptomology.
Maya massage improves organ function by releasing physical and emotional congestion from the abdomen. This external massage gently lifts and guides the uterus into its optimal position in the lower pelvis. The uterus is held in position by over 10 ligaments. Ligaments, when stressed or strained cause the uterus to become mal-positioned. If the uterus is mal-positioned, women experience a multitude of symptoms.
