ATMAT® Non Pregnancy

The Arvigo Technique of Maya Abdominal Therapy® (ATMAT) is a massage technique that supports reproductive, digestive, bladder, abdominal, pelvic, hip, and spinal health. It is an external non-invasive technique that helps restore homeostasis (balance within).  This technique effectively alleviates tissue congestion and organ constriction to improve vital flows of energy, blood, lymph, and nerves in the abdomen, and consequently throughout the whole body. 

The initial appointment is a 2-2 1/2 hour session that includes a detailed health history, education of the bodies systems, ATMAT (which consists of a thorough abdominal massage and a posterior/back massage, focusing on the low back, sacrum, and tailbone), self care massage instructions, and any other suggestions that are recommended on an individual basis.  Follow up appointments are discussed and set up on an individual basis.

I see women, men, and children of all ages for this therapy. Please contact me for specific recommendations on the timing for your appointment.

-Digestive imbalances- constipation, IBS, acid reflux, Crohn's, gastritis, etc

ATMAT® Pregnancy

Pregnancy is a time when a woman's body endures tremendous stress due to dramatic physical and emotional changes. The Arvigo Technique of Maya Abdominal Therapy® (ATMAT) is a great way to help make this the best experience possible! 

The initial appointment is a 2-2 1/2 hour session that includes a detailed health history, education of the bodies systems, ATMAT (which consists of a thorough abdominal massage and a posterior/back massage, focusing on the low back, sacrum, and tailbone- modifications made during different stages of pregnancy). Other suggestions are discussed on an individual basis.

Scheduling an ATMAT Initial appointment for Pregancy is the first step. ATMAT Pregancy 60 minute follow up appointments are usually recommended up until week 37. After week 37 it is usually recommened to schedule ATMAT Pregnancy 90 minute follow up. Appointments are recommended anytime during pregancy, unless serious complications arise and/or there are any active acute infections present.

Lymphatic Massage

Lymphatic massage aims to gently and rhythmically move the lymph through the body.  The lymphatic system is similar to the circulatory system, but doesn't have a pump like the heart pumps the blood. Massage, muscle movement, and other body therapies are a great way to stimulate the lymphatic system.

-Enhances the functioning of the immune system

-Faster recovery from injury/surgery

-Reduces swelling

Therapeutic Massage

Therapeutic massage is a form of bodywork that aims to relieve tension in the deeper layers of tissue in the body, releasing acute and chronic pain/discomfort.  This list includes all of these, but not limited to just these conditions:

-Frozen shoulder, TOS (thoracic outlet syndrome)

-Migraines/headaches

-Sciatic nerve and hip pain

-neck, shoulder, and other back pain/discomforts

-Carpal tunnel, tennis/golfers elbow
