The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy™ is an external, non-invasive manipulation of the abdominal and pelvic organs. Internal organs may become malpositioned, leading to the constriction of circulatory, lymphatic and nervous structures. Maya abdominal therapy realigns structures, which reduces nerve compression and lowers inflammation by increasing blood and lymphatic drainage. The uterus, gastrointestinal tract and urinary tract are the major structures that can benefit from this manual technique.
Numerous muscles and ligaments that support the uterus stretch and contract in response to normal daily activities. Over time these ligaments and muscles may not return to their state of equilibrium, resulting in a mal-positioned or tilted uterus. Small deviations in uterine position lead to compromised blood and lymphatic flow to and from the uterus. Furthermore, the uterus can also abut against the bladder or colon compromising circulation and nerve function of those organs. Decreases in blood flow, lymph drainage and nerve conduction resulting from an anatomically misaligned uterus produces a static environment which may become inflamed, irritated or possibly acidic. This situation can cause a myriad of symptoms and if left unaddressed, possible pathology can develop. Realigning the uterus can help with these symptoms:
The Maya Abdominal Therapy works on the upper and lower abdomen, addressing many digestive problems by increasing blood flow to, and enhancing lymphatic drainage from, the digestive tract. Digestive symptoms that benefit from this therapy include:
Urinary Tract and Prostate
Males with urinary and pelvic issues greatly benefit from this therapy. By lowering congestion and inflammation in the pelvis through increased blood and lymphatic flow, the pressure on the bladder and urethra is reduced. This will ultimately assist with symptoms related to the urinary tract and assist with a swollen prostate. Since there is NO direct massage of the prostate, this therapy is safe for individuals with benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH).
Maya Abdominal Therapy is not good for:
- Pregnant women: *Therapy can begin 6 weeks after a vaginal delivery or 3 months after a C-section therapy
- If cancer is present or individual is receiving chemotherapy for cancer in the abdomen/pelvis
- During an acute infection in the pelvis or abdomen
- Less than 8 weeks after an abdominal or pelvic surgery
