I am Rejuvenated
Where the blood goes, oxygen flows. – Dr. Rosita Arvigo
The concept of massaging the belly is nothing new or uncommon amongst the many customs, cultures, and peoples all over the world or throughout the course of time. Think about it; have you ever rubbed your belly when you have an upset stomach? The effects can be soothing when sore, stimulating when feeling stagnant, or nurturing in general.
Originating from Belize the specific sequence of strokes offered by the practitioners of the Abdominal Therapy Collective stems from the work of Dr. Rosita Arvigo and her studies with local healer Don Elijio Panti. The simple, yet profound application of light but firm pressure to the full measure of the abdomen addresses the body’s systems; lymphatic, nervous, digestive, urogenital, reproductive, hormonal, and their associated fascia, nerves, arteries, veins, ligaments, and energetic components. The applied strokes, working through the soft tissues of the body, homeostatically sets the environment for balance in the body in the way it sees fit.
Homeostasis is responsible for pH level, heart rate, blood pressure, hormones, digestion, absorption, elimination, oxygen levels, our breathing, and the rate of our breathing.
Abdominal Therapy can be incorporated into your regular massage therapy session and, more importantly, used as a regular daily self care practice at home. While (Mayan) Abdominal Therapy is widely known as a practice for fertility it is an incredible tool for general health and well being for all bodies.
Come in and experience Abdominal Therapy on our massage table and/or set up a time to learn the sequence for yourself at home or on the go.
