The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal TherapyTM

Maya Goddess Ix Chel

Self-Care Training

Portland, Oregon

April 8th – 10th, 2011


The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal TherapyTM incorporates massage, herbs, nutrition, meditation and emotional/spiritual healing into a holistic approach for wellness and disease prevention.  Maya Abdominal Massage is a non-invasive, external massage that guides internal abdominal and pelvic organs into proper position.  This technique improves digestive and reproductive health by restoring circulation and energy flow as well as reducing congestion and inflammation of the abdomen. It is effective for both women and men.


What is Self-Care Training?

This training teaches you how to perform Maya Abdominal Massage on yourself.  Additionally, we will discuss anatomy and physiology of the abdomen and pelvis, causes of a displaced uterus or swollen prostate, signs/symptoms, contraindications, emotional armoring and supportive healing modalities.  Our approach honors the body’s innate wisdom to heal itself and, as such, empowers participants with knowledge and tools that they can integrate into their daily life. Self-Care Training is an introductory workshop of the Arvigo Program; upon completion of this training, participants will be able to practice the Maya Abdominal Massage on themselves only.  This workshop is the prerequisite for the Arvigo Institute’s Professional Training, which educates licensed practitioners on how to perform this technique on others.


Who can attend a Self-Care Workshop?

Anyone who experiences one or more symptoms of a displaced uterus such as painful periods, PMS, endometriosis, ovarian cysts, infertility, miscarriages, painful intercourse, incontinence, low back pain, difficult menopause, digestive problems, etc.  Men who experience prostate pathologies or digestive problems benefit from this workshop as well. This course is also for those who are searching for a modality that heals the body holistically – physically, emotionally and spiritually.  This healing modality is for all who desire to have a strengthened connection to intuition, inspiration and creativity.  Additionally, licensed health care practitioners who want to integrate these techniques into their practice must attend this workshop before enrolling into Professional Training.
