Self care is an empowering way to care for yourself: body, mind & spirit as one. It is a modern approach to holistic healing from the wisdom of the ancient Maya shamanic healing traditions which includes Maya massage, anatomy and physiology, herbalism, nutrition, emotional & spiritual healing.
What is Arvigo® Therapy?
Dr. Rosita Arvigo’s Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy® (Arvigo® Therapy) is an ancient healing therapy which uses a non-invasive, external massage helping to improve the flow of blood, lymph, nerve and Qi (life force) throughout the body. This technique stimulates circulation in the abdomen, helping to support optimal function of your body’s organs. Arvigo® Therapy can be applied throughout every stage of a woman, man or child’s life.
The focus of this workshop is on the Maya ways of healing which includes self care massage application as well as addressing herbal, nutritional, spiritual and emotional support for the massage techniques to ensure comprehensive understanding of the modality and how it contributes to wellness. These ancient Maya modalities were taught to Rosita Arvigo in Belize by traditional healers including Shaman Don Elijio Panti and Midwife Hortence Robinson. Rosita Arvigo, a Doctor of naprapathy then further developed these techniques and brought them to USA.
