The Avrigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy for the reproductive and digestive systems is an external, non- invasive, manipulation using only hands to reposition reproductive organs and improve blood flow. It guides the uterus and internal abdominal organs into their proper position for optimum health and well-being. The technique works by relieving congestion and blockages to improve the flow of chi and fluids of the circulatory, lymphatic and nervous systems to prevent the progression of chronic disease symptomology.
By shifting the uterus back into place, homeostasis, or the natural balance of the body is restored in the pelvic area and the surrounding organs. Toxins are flushed and nutrients that help to tone tissue and balance hormones are restored to normal order. This is essential for optimum health, healthy pregnancy, labor, and delivery. For Centuries in Central America, home of the Maya they have cared for women using massage, prayer, and herbal remedies. Besides birthing, they treat diverse disorders such as painful menstruation, chronic miscarriages, yeast infections, infertility, PMS, and menopausal symptoms.
Dr. Rosita Arvigo, DN, developed these techniques, after apprenticing Don Elijio Panti, one of the last of the Traditional Maya Shaman's in Central America, where she has lived for over 30 years. The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy combine modern science with traditional healing and wisdom to produce a holistic path to physical, emotional and spiritual well-being.
“The uterus is the woman’s center. If her uterus is not in proper position and good health, nothing in her life will be right. She will be as out of balance as her uterus.” -Don Elijio Panti, Maya Shaman

Normally the uterus leans slightly over the bladder in the center of the pelvis, about one and a half inches above the pubic bone. It is held in this position by muscles, the vaginal wall and ligaments that attach it to the back, front, and sides of the pelvis. Uterine ligaments are made to stretch to accommodate a growing fetus inside and to move freely when the bladder or bowel is full. The ligaments and muscles can weaken and loosen, causing the uterus to fall downward, forward, backward or to either side.
A uterus in any of these positions is often referred to as being "tilted or prolapsed" that can result in many symptoms. Women are often told, “you have a tilted uterus, there is nothing that can be done, or it’s normal don’t worry about it." Depending on the symptoms a woman experiences, allopathic treatment options may include the birth control pill, muscle relaxants, or surgery. These physical and emotional symptoms can be addressed and prevented with natural medicine and non-invasive massage techniques such as the Maya Massage.
Just a few extra ounces sitting on blood and lymph vessels can cause havoc throughout the different systems in the body. A shift in position of the uterus causes pressure on the blood vessels, lymphatic vessels and nerves that feed the uterus, fallopian tubes and ovaries. The uterus can also put pressure on the other pelvic organs such as the bladder, rectum or ovaries, all of which leads to congestion and an acidic environment in the pelvis.
"The female pelvis is a powerhouse of energy transformation- the very throne of creation through which universal creative energy patterns course and flow."
