1. What is Arvigo® Therapy?
Arvigo Therapy is a bodywork system with its roots in Maya healing traditions passed down by the late Don Elijio Panti of Belize to Dr. Rosita Arvigo. Practically, Arvigo® Therapy involves bodywork that is unique in its structural support of the uterus, while also being beneficial to digestive, nervous system, circulatory and structural health. Spiritual Healing is another component of this work, bringing together plants, water and prayers to restore energetic balance and deep connection. The two rivers of this work can operate independently or be woven together into a single offering, depending on the practitioner's scope of practice and the needs of the client.
2. How many sessions will one require?
This is highly dependent on the presenting issue, the client's healing goals and the way in which the body responds to treatment. Ideally, allowing oneself three sessions and/or three months to witness how this work affects the body can be a good strategy.
3. Is this work only for women?
This work is for everybody, regardless of gender or identity. It has a lot to offer those who are tending their uterine health, and can be massively supportive to digestive, circulatory, nervous or structural conditions as well as have a positive impact on reproductive health in general. The spiritual component works with bringing balance to the energy field, and as such can be applied to all living beings including children, animals, plants and spaces.
4. Can I include Arvigo® Therapy in my fertility journey?
Absolutely. This work can be a main focus or an adjunct to all manner of fertility journeys, and be adapted to support the client as they navigate all manner of Assisted Reproductive Technologies (i.e. IVF/IUI etc.).
5. What about gut health?
Because a large focus of Arvigo bodywork is on digestive organs, the physical restoration of flow can have a positive impact on all manner of digestive concerns.
