What is the Arvigo Technique of Mayan Abdominal Therapy (ATMAT)?

Ancient healing methods using external, non-invasive manipulation through massage and stretches to guide reproductive organs and pelvic bone structure into their proper position. Once reproductive organs and the pelvic bone structure are returned to their proper position, along with recommended dietary and lifestyle changes, the body can begin to heal itself. As is true of the current model of holistic healing, this massage supports the body’s natural healing capacity.

What happens when the Uterus is displaced?

This displacement and resulting constriction and congestion in the abdominal and pelvic area is the cause of many of the common female and male complaints as well as a host of seemingly unrelated ailments.

Contraindications / when the massage is not performed:

  • During menstrual bleeding
  • Within the first 6 weeks following a normal vaginal delivery or the first 3 months after a c-section
  • For a woman using an IUD for birth control
  • If cancer is present or suspected anywhere in the pelvis, or the client is undergoing chemotherapy for this condition
  • During the first trimester of pregnancy
  • Hiatal Hernia – gentle touch only
