Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy ATMAT®

The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy® aid the reproductive and digestive systems by external, non-invasive, manipulation using only hands to reposition reproductive organs and improve blood and lymph flow to digestive organs. 

This therapeutic treatment focuses on diminishing congestion of the pelvis & abdomen which is a primary cause of many reproductive and digestive complaints. The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy® supports the body's natural healing capacity assisting the body back to balance and greater health. This session increases the vital flow of fluids and energy to nourish and repair the organs and systems naturally.

The 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.
