A non-invasive, external massage technique, this therapy guides internal abdominal organs into proper position for optimum health and well-being. ATMAT improves organ function by releasing physical and emotional congestion from the abdomen. This massage is effective for both men and women.
The technique applies anatomy, physiology, herbology, and naprapathy (study of the ligaments, joints, and muscles), with ancient Mayan healing techniques to address common female complaints.
The technique works by relieving congestion and blockages to improve the flow of chi and fluids of the circulatory, lymphatic, and nervous symptoms to prevent the progression of chronic symptoms. ATMAT combine modern science with Mayan traditional healing and wisdom to produce a holistic path to physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being.

After uterus cancer/ hysterectomy:
ATMAT for women who have had cancer, hysterectomy, is profound - 5 systems of flow, creating health for the other organs, relief from adhesions and keeping adhesions from forming. And - spiritually connecting back to center. We always have the womb space, some women suffer great depression after these experiences and gain back a big piece of themselves after the therapy.
After surgical removal a woman's uterus and ovaries are still there energetically. Arvigo Abdominal Therapy will help keep her pelvic floor, bladder and descending colon healthy by reducing congestion and increasing flow.
The sacral chakra and uterus are the major power center, creative inspiration and sharp intuition of every woman no matter what age she is or whether or not the physical organs are present. It must always be respected, nurtured and held in the highest regard! This work reminds woman to work from this place.
The work is also spiritualy healing for those women who feel disconnected from their femininity after the cessation of their menstrual flow. It is a path to reconnecting to their womb space once again.
Many women once in menopause begin to reassess their life, working with this center encourages change, listening to your intuition and really feeling the power and wisdom behind menopause. Also the work with peri-menopausal women and menopausal women helps to clean out the uterus before it closes into the most beautiful diamond. Old tissue/lining and such is less likely to be left behind.
