The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy (ATMAT) support reproductive and digestive health. It is a non-invasive external massage founded on ancient Maya healing techniques.
These techniques address the physical health and position of pelvic and abdominal organs and any emotional holding patterns found therein. Soft and gentle manipulations are used to reposition misaligned organs, thereby stimulating circulation of blood, nerve, lymph and chi to support the body's innate capacity to self heal.
Dr. Rosita Arvigo learned the original Maya techniques over a 10 year apprenticeship with Don Elijio Panti, the great Maya Shaman of Belize. She was also exposed to other central American ancient traditions that represent an unbroken chain of knowledge handed down from generation to generation of shamans, midwives and healers. Unifying this all with over thirty years of training and experience in the natural sciences of massage, naprapathy, herbology, and spiritual healing; Dr. Arvigo developed the techniques which now bear her name.
