Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy® - Fertility Massage

Arvigo Therapy

Maya Abdominal Massage Fertility Montreal Naturopath

The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy® are founded on the ancient Mayan technique of abdominal massage. It is a non-invasive, external massage technique that is used to guide abdominal organs back into their proper position for optimal health and well being. Arvigo Therapy helps to relieve congestion and any blockages that are restricting the flow of blood, lymph, nerve and chi. 

Origins of Arvigo Therapy

Dr. Rosita Arvigo, Naprapathic Physician, developed these techniques based on her 30 years of experience in massage, naprapathy, herbology and spiritual healing. She was taught a form of Maya Abdominal massage by her mentor, the last Maya Shaman in Belize, Don Elijio Panti, with whom she apprenticed for 10 years. Arvigo Therapy is a modality that incorporates a holistic approach to health - body, emotional and spiritual healing. Maya Abdominal massage practitioners believe that with any natural healing technique, these areas must be simultaneously addressed to promote optimal health. 

Maya abdominal massage has become very popular for it's effectiveness in treating fertility challenges (in both men and women), menstrual cramping and pain, and urinary incontinence (although it helps with many other things as well). Midwives and healers of Central American agree that most female troubles are caused by a "wandering womb."

“The uterus is the women’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, teacher to Rosita Arvigo

Maya Abdominal Therapy also incorporates castor oil packs as well as herbal vaginal steams for fertility. Want to know more about these? Contact Svea for more information.

What to Expect in a Maya Abdominal Massage Session for Fertility (& other female complaints) with Svea:

The first appointment for fertility complaints lasts around 1.5 hours.

During the appointment there will be a comprehensive review of your past and present healthcare needs, focusing on reproductive and digestive health. The massage helps:

Align reproductive and abdominal organs to optimal position
Improve circulation to organs
Promote vital flow to support the body’s inherent healing capacity

Arvigo Therapy also includes bodywork on your lower back as well. There will be an evaluation of the alignment of your spine and pelvis and then accompanying bodywork to help correct any imbalance you may have. Arvigo Therapy is also great for anyone who has ever fallen on their tailbone/sacrum as it helps to reduce scar tissue in the area and promote circulation and flow in the area.

  • You will also leave the session with 'homework.' Svea will teach you how to do the self-care massage at home so you can continue to to heal between sessions.
    Svea may also recommend complimentary modalities to support fertility and women's health, which may include:
    • Faja – a traditional lower abdomen support wrap
    • Bajos – traditional herbal pelvic steam bath of the Maya
    • Castor oil packs
    • Nutritional and herbal support
    • Lifestyle education


Typically, 2-3 professional sessions (at a minimum) are required to address most conditions.  Clients who perform their self-care massage on a routine basis report an improvement in their symptoms.
