Howard

“I was the victim of soft tissue damage in my neck, spine, back and shoulders. I had scar tissue in all of these areas. Carly’s work removed the scar tissue in all of these parts. I am so pleased, that tears well up in my eyes. What is the value of having pain removed from your body? I cry every time I think of it. Wow what a blessing!”

I’m not sure why it’s taken me so long to write this review, but it’s no short of a miracle how Carly has changed my life. Endometriosis is what first brought me in to see Carly spring of 2017. I had laparoscopic surgery and was diagnosed fall of 2016, but had been experiencing symptoms 4 years prior. My excision surgery provided no relief, combined with my modified diet and exercise. Carly performed Arvigo Therapy for my first session and brought up an issue with my body that no other practitioner at the time had considered noting: my widely spread abdominal scar formed by my colostomy from premature birth. The adhesions bound to other abdominal organs and created havoc with my digestive system, and together with endometrial tissue planted outside my uterus, my pelvis suffered as well. Since my first session with Carly over 2 years ago, we’ve worked on releasing and transforming my abdominal adhesions, releasing my pelvic congestion and chronic inflammation, and healing my body naturally. Arvigo Therapy combined with Holistic Pelvic Care has done so much for my body and soul. Carly’s wisdom enabled me to incorporate natural options in my healing process; castor oil packs, seed cycling, yoni steaming. I committed to the self-care program we designed together, and progressively have experienced amazing results. I can honestly say I’m pain free for the first time in years, both with my cycle and digestive system. I’m in a position to conceive naturally and healthily, an option I never thought I could have. She’s so well-educated about the female body and is worth every single cent. It’s been a true blessing getting to know Carly and having her in my life. She’s such a strong, beautiful and powerful human being.

Deb

“Carly helped me with a long-standing issue of painful sexual problems. Some of this due to abuse issues and an anatomy issue that I did not think could be changed. I had no idea that a uterus could be moved back into place and that the pelvic bowl could relax. 
My body totally changed after working with Carly.”

“I feel at home in my body and at peace. 
Even at the age of 63 It is important to become a fully functioning woman. I now have freedom that I never dreamt possible. 
Carly is totally professional, respectful and engaged helping me integrate my healing.”

Brydon

“It may sound dramatic but I have an entirely new outlook on life. My body hasn’t felt this good in a long time and I haven’t been this much at peace in years. The benefits I’ve seen physically, emotionally and psychologically from Carly’s treatment have been incredible, and I would recommend anyone dealing with pain to go see her. It was the best decision I’ve made in a long time, worth every penny and has literally changed my life.”

Gracie

“Carly is so dedicated to my health and well being. She helps me to relax and reminds me to honour and appreciate my female body, instead of viewing it as a source of pain and discomfort. This has helped me immensely as she has been working to alleviate the pain I have each month during my cycle, from what has been suggested by my doctor is endometriosis.”

“She is extremely focused and nurturing during our sessions and communicates her suggestions in a non-judgmental, compassionate tone. My symptoms of IBS, extreme abdominal pain that radiates down my legs, tightness in my pelvis and hips, nausea and dizziness have all improved since working with Carly for the last 3 months. As a 17 year old, I highly recommend her for girls of all ages.”

Kira

“For the past few years I’d been suffering from heavy periods and fibroids. I was passed from birth control to birth control for years, with a doctor that could not hear what I was saying about my body. During my cycle I would be lucky to make it 45 minutes without overflowing my Diva Cup and heavy overnight pad. It negatively affected every aspect of my life. This left me feeling like an embarrassing, bloody burden to others and pushed me to feel disdain and conflict with my own body. Eventually, it got to the point where I ended up in the Emergency Room needing a blood transfusion. From my very first session with Carly, I felt seen, heard, and validated.”

“She approaches her practice with a grace, passion, and wisdom that all womxn should experience. It was such a relief to be held and cared for by someone that understood my desire to be best friends with my body. After only 4 sessions I’ve learned more about my body than I had in my 34 years on this earth. I now longer live in fear of my body, have increased self esteem and knowledge, enjoyable cycles, and acceptance… and have been experiencing the best orgasms of my life! This sacred work has forever changed my life and Carly was the catalyst.”

Ash

“My appointment with Carly was beyond anything I could have imagined. I have been carrying a lot of shame, particularly my pelvis for years. Through sexual trauma and learned beliefs, I shut down aspects of my body and didn’t feel connected to my womb or sexuality. There was anxiety around even receiving help or learning more about sexual anatomy. I was afraid if I learned to really listen or understand my anatomy fully, I would see how much damage was there and that there would be no way to heal emotionally or physically.”

“My anxiety quickly disappeared after starting my session with Carly, she is open and real, so present with all this natural fear and that automatically eased my mind. I was never taught my anatomy, never taught how to read my body or release pain and tension. This crucial element of my existence as a woman remained a secret surrounded by shame and loss. As Carly massaged my stomach and womb, I felt more and more relaxed. The tension that had coiled itself up in my stomach and the tight fist I held at my pelvic floor began to lighten just a little. She kept me talking, opening up through discussion so that I felt safe and heard. I didn’t realize how important it was for my body to be acknowledged in this way, for time to be taken to really address what I have been holding onto. The massaging was circular, sometimes deep, sometimes lightly near my core. Carly has a wealth of knowledge on softening and surrendering into sensations, she gave me tips on what natural ways I could release tension in my muscles and how castor oil packs can help with my scarring. She is intuitive and invites silence in a compassionate and loving way. I can’t explain how I felt my body ground and open, inviting the movement above my womb where I have the tendency to suck in and close off. She taught me about moving my breath into different areas, visualizations that bring healing and a different emotional vibration. Throughout the session, she reminded me that this is my time and I can tell her what is working for me, what I need more of or what isn’t. The pelvic mapping was absolutely incredible. It helped me understand just how little I know about my own yoni, how I have shaped so much of my knowledge around what others have told me or what I was taught in hospital environments. I wanted so badly to feel whole, to heal and grow so that I can empower others to learn about their bodies too. Carly was so professional and aware of my process through the session. She taught me about my pelvic floor and how I can work to decrease pain and do small things daily that would improve my movement. She showed me what I can do at home to help honour my body and release build up muscle tension from stress and anxiety. I learned that the language of my body is always speaking if only I took the time to listen. Near the end of this session, Carly did a visualization that brought the natural beauty of my pelvic bowl into perspective, I felt empowered to truly see myself and pay attention. I felt fully in my body, relaxed, aware and grounded. When I left the appointment, I went for a walk by the river. Taking time to integrate the information I had learned and to really appreciate the ability to know myself. It seems so simple and yet I had went a lifetime avoiding loving many parts of my body. I took it easy for the rest of the day and spent time nurturing myself, drinking tea and writing, smiling inwardly at this new step on my journey. I am so grateful to Carly for guiding me, for doing this work with women and seeing how incredibly important it is to break down these barriers of shame and learn our bodies so that we can heal them and love them completely.”
