Digestion is the Cornerstone of Health
The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Massage are beneficial for the GI (gastro-intestinal) Tract. The stomach, pancreas, liver, spleen, small and large intestines are assessed and treated during the session. This will be the most thorough abdominal exam you have ever had! Blood flow through these organs is improved by massage. Elimination is improved also.
Digestion is the process of breaking down the food we eat, absorbing it through the walls of the intestines and eliminating the waste from the food and the body. When digestion is impaired, health will always be limited in some fashion. When I work with women to enhance fertility, I always assess this organ system. It is common for all animals to avoid conception when food is scarce. Food may not be scarce for us, but in the absence of good digestion, your body may decide that your nutrition is inadequate for creating another body and nursing for 2-3 years. With my patients, I will consider the need for further laboratory work-up, but giving the abdomen a good massage will help us decide how functional your GI tract is.
