Arvigo Techniques Maya Abdominal Therapy® (ATMAT) is an external massage technique that guides internal abdominal organs into their proper position (with a focus on aligning the uterus) for optimum health and well-being. Maya massage improves organ function by releasing physical and emotional congestion from the abdomen. This improves the flow of chi and fluids of the circulatory, lymphatic, and nervous systems to prevent chronic disease. Dr. Rosita Arvigo developed this technique after studying extensively with her mentor, Don Elijio Panti, a Mayan Shaman from Belize, and Hortence Robinson, a Belizean midwife. The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy® combine modern science with traditional healing and wisdom to produce a holistic path for physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being.

What can I expect in an ATMAT session?
Your session will begin with a detailed history and list of goals for treatment. I will briefly introduce/review pelvic and abdominal anatomy and then you will receive abdominal massage focused on aligning pelvic and abdominal organs. Instruction in self-care techniques follows the massage session. Additionally, herbal remedies and other supportive treatments may be recommended to enhance the effect of the Arvigo therapy.
