Arvigo® Maya Abdominal Therapy
Arvigo® Maya Abdominal Therapy is founded upon ancient Maya healing techniques from Central America. The therapy helps to improve the function of your reproductive and digestive systems and is particularly useful for natural fertility, digestive troubles and menstrual problems. It combines gentle, relaxing massage and manipulation of your abdomen, back and sacrum with other supportive natural therapies.
The massage itself works by optimising the position of your digestive and reproductive organs by relaxing and toning internal structures. It also promotes the flow of blood and lymph to and from your organs, and nervous innovation of your organs.
The Arvigo® techniques were brought together by Dr Rosita Arvigo based upon her ten year apprenticeship with the Maya healer of Belize, Don Elijio Panti, and 30 years of her own learning with traditional Maya midwives and her research as a naprapathic physician.
“…physically releasing deep tension and refreshing the blood flow to muscles and organs…”

Subsequent consultations are either 90 minutes or one hour depending upon your needs.

Plants have been used as medicine throughout the world, throughout history. Medicinal plants contain organic compounds that have a therapeutic affinity with your body. These compounds help to balance your hormones and help your body to regulate, protect and heal it self.
Plant medicines come in the form of tinctures, capsules and powders, dried herb teas, creams, suppositories and pessaries, and infused and essential oils. I create bespoke prescriptions and I also have a range of women’s products that are available to purchase without an in-person consultation – find out more or book a Herbal Medicine only consultation.
Foods contain vital nutrients for optimal function of your body. Nutrient deficiencies can lead to long-term chronic conditions. As part of your consultation I will assess your diet and support you with developing a plan for optimal nutrition through foods and supplements.
Vaginal steaming is an age-old traditional herbal medicine practice. Steaming the delicate and porous tissue of the vagina helps to soften, moisten and open this area, promoting blood flow and circulation to the vagina, uterus and ovaries. It also helps to lubricate and relax the vagina before intercourse and before trans-vaginal procedures.
Hormonal and chemical imbalances in the body can sometimes cause vaginal infections. Sitz baths (herbal teas – made from anti-microbial plants such as oregano and calendula) help to soothe inflamed skin and clear the infection.
Castor Oil Packs
Castor oil helps to break down scar tissue and internal adhesions by encouraging the local activity of your immune system.
