This is a special one…
A couple of years ago we both fell hook line and sinker for Arvigo® Therapy and the beautiful things it can do for fertility.
It was one of those moments when something deep down in you just knows how right this is.
One of those light bulb moments, when you suddenly realise that all the things you’ve taken as fixed and permanent, like…
…your tubes being blocked
…or having a tilted uterus
…or scar tissue and adhesions
…or surgery being the only option for some conditions
MAY NOT BE THE FULL END OF THE STORY AFTER ALL.
One of those ‘Oh! Yeah, of course, that makes so much sense’ moments!
It feels like it connects up all the parts of you again that have been separate and disconnected for way too long.
All those parts of you that need to be able to speak to each other really clearly so that fertility, and your whole system, can work optimally.
It’s been a long time coming to go from there to getting fully trained, but we’re now so ridiculously thrilled to be able to offer this as part of our Catching Rainbows treatments.
It’s just such a beautiful antidote to that awful feeling that everything is STUCK.
And you’re trying so hard and nothing’s shifting.
And that you’ve got no control or power over any of it.
Arvigo® Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy are all about FLOW.
Boosting blood flow to help your circulation nourish all your reproductive organs as well as they possibly can.
Getting your lymphatic and nervous systems flowing optimally.
And your energy or Chi moving freely.
Shifting congestion and getting those systems communicating effortlessly with one another again.
Re-aligning reproductive organs that have slipped slightly out of place so that their position supports the best flow possible.
“Just a few extra ounces sitting on blood and lymph vessels can cause havoc throughout the different systems in the body. By shifting the uterus back into place, homeostasis, or the natural balance of the body, is restored in the pelvic area and the surrounding organs. Toxins are flushed and nutrients that help to tone tissue and balance hormones are restored to normal order.” (The Arvigo® website)
Getting things moving again can also help to break up the old adhesions and scar tissue from previous treatments and conditions such as fibroids, endometriosis, and laparoscopies.
It’s also great for helping to prepare for IUI and IVF.
More than anything, though, I feel like it’s about empowerment.
Having 2-3 full treatments can really help to get the ball rolling but the best part about this is being able to teach you the self-care routine that enables you to do this for yourself at home for 10 minutes every day.
It feels like it gives back some of that sense of control and empowerment.
Some of that nourishment, and puts it back in your hands.
We hold so much emotion in our belly’s and our wombs, and in our sacrum’s too, (they’re definitely called the ‘sacred sacrum’ for good reason), and connecting with the Self Care techniques, without a doubt, helps to let things flow emotionally and energetically.
I think what I’ve realised the most though, is that as women, it’s where we hold so much of our power too, and when you get that moving and flowing freely, incredible things happen!
It feels like very sacred medicine.
And a very great privilege to share with anyone that’s interested.
Please feel free to take a peek at the Arvigo® website as it tells you much more and gives you a full list of all the practitioners in the UK and abroad.
For anyone that wants to read or see a bit more, the book Sastun is the really beautiful story written by Rosita Arvigo who brought this technique that now bears her name all the way from the Belizean jungle and her mentor Don Elijio Panti, a Mayan Shaman, who taught her these ancient healing techniques.

Or if you’d like to chat it through with me, please don’t hesitate to get in touch and we can talk it through and see if it feels right for you.
There’s also a fab article here that explains a bit more about it too.
With all our biggest love and wishes,

PS. By the time I finished the training…
I had more colour in my face where my circulation had starting moving more freely again. In fact all 17 of us were glowing with pink cheeks!
My sleep felt deeper and more restful.
My digestion felt like it was moving again in ways I hadn’t even realised it hadn’t been.
And a space felt like it had opened up in my body and my heart that allowed room for everything to move freely again.
A good few tears flowed too!
It’s definitely special stuff x x x
