Arvigo Massage

Introduction to: Arvigo Massage

"The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Massage TM are founded on the ancient Mayan technique of abdominal massage which is an external non invasive manipulation that repositions internal organs that have shifted, thereby restricting the flow of blood, lymph, nerve and chi.
Based on over thirty years of training and experience in massage, naprapathy, herbology, and spiritual healing, Dr. Rosita Arvigo developed these techniques which now bear her name. This modality incorporates a holistic approach to health care which includes massage, anatomy and physiology, herbology, 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 73 year old herbal midwife of Belize who has been delivering babies since she was 13.
The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Massage TM address position and health of the pelvic and abdominal organs. The work 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."

"Health and Happiness"

Thursday, January 10, 2008 5:27am report on KNBC Los Angeles [] by reporter: Jennifer Bjorkland entitled: “Health and Happiness”.

“Researchers say: If your looking for an easy way to improve your health, try doing something that makes you happy. A study of nearly 3000 people finds, those who reported happy moods, had lower levels of stress hormones and markers of inflammation in the blood. The study by: The University College, London found; there is a biological benefit to happiness and that people should spend more time doing things that make them feel good.”

Massage feels good and it is good for you. Massage therapy is effective in the control of pain, chronic or acute. It is also of use in stress reduction, in creating a sense of relaxation and well-being. It can improve circulation, recovery time and immune system function. A licensed, skilled practitioner can become an important and integral part of your health care team.
