Five Benefits of the Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy ®️ - ATMAT

What do reproductive health, proper digestion and emotional healing have in common? They all derive from the alignment of your internal organs.

Your organs can shift slightly in and out of their proper placement causing problems with digestion, blood flow, fertility, swelling and even urination.

So how can you maintain the proper alignment of your organs? Diet and exercise are great practices to carryout daily, but if you need a little extra help, a Maya Abdominal Massage might be the best treatment for you.

The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy® work to simply move your organs back where they belong.

While the benefits of a Maya Abdominal Massage are endless, Registered Massage Therapist, Arica Johnson, has outlined some of the Massage’s key benefits.

  1. Promotes Digestion

Digestive health is extremely important, although it is often something that gets overlooked in our everyday lives. Healthy foods, daily exercise and probiotics are great ways to maintain gut health. But regular maintenance alone might not be enough. Arica explains that the Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy® may treat digestive disorders like irritable bowel, Crohn’s disease, GERD and constipation by increasing blood and lymph flow to relieve symptoms and ultimately increase your digestive health.

2. Improves Female Reproductive Health

For women, reproductive health is an important part of our lives. Health complications like infertility, menstrual disorders, and other general reproductive health issues can cause significant problems and discomfort throughout a woman’s life. Arica explains that, “the uterus is a very mobile organ, as it has to expand so much during pregnancy, so it can get out of it's natural alignment. It can flop to either side, be folded over on itself and put pressure on the bladder, or can be retroverted and fold over backwards, causing pressure on the colon.” She continues to explain that a displaced uterus can cause many other uncomfortable symptoms. Some of which include painful or irregular menstrual cycles, Premenstrual Syndrome Depression, chronic miscarriages, difficult pregnancies, Endometriosis, infertility, ovarian cysts, uterine fibroids, and varicose veins of the legs, among many more. According to the Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy® website (, many of these symptoms may be improved with treatment.

3. Alleviates Chronic Yeast and Bladder Infections

Chronic yeast and bladder infections have many causes. Things such as frequent antibiotic use, hormone altering substances (like birth control and estrogen therapy), and even the clothes you wear can cause chronic yeast infections. And chronic bladder infections are caused by bacteria spreading into the urinary track. While avoiding these causes is a great way to prevent chronic yeast and bladder infections, the Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy® can be a powerful tool to use as well. By shifting the abdominal and pelvic organs into their proper alignment, and maintaining routine genital health care practices, you may notice decreased amounts of yeast and bladder infections.

4. Assists with Impotence and Erectile Disfunction

The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy® aren’t just used to benefit women. Treatments may also be used to help men decrease early stages of prostate swelling, Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia, mild Prostatitis, impotence and erectile dysfunction. This is achieved by massaging the abdomen, supporting the organs in the abdominal and pelvic region, creating more space and allowing more blood to flow to those areas. The same treatment is used for all clients regardless of gender. Other potential benefits of treatment - for both males and females - include: relief of headaches/migraines, increased energy, better breathing, and alleviation of back pain.

5. Provides Emotional Healing

With good gut health comes emotional wellness. Arica explains that, “the gut is called the second brain because of the tremendous amount of nerve endings it carries. So often we experience emotions in our guts - butterflies in our stomachs, being sick to our stomach etc.” She explains that working energy healing into your ATMAT® session provides clients with the best results. “There is often a lot of emotional armouring, old memories or traumas, and energetic patterns in our abdomens that can be blocking the healing of the issue the client is wanting help with. So working energetically can gently release these blocks in a far deeper way than doing massage alone,” says Arica.

Clients looking to book an Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy® at Laya Spa & Yoga can expect an initial session that is 90 minutes long and focuses on reproductive and digestive health. This first treatment includes a massage of the upper and lower abdomen that will align abdominal organs to their optimal position, improve circulation to organs, and promote vital flow. This session will also include instructions in self-care practices that can be conduced at home to enhance your Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy® treatments.

A minimum of two to three professional sessions are suggested in order to address most conditions. Follow-up sessions are 60 minutes long.

Whether you’re looking for relief of painful periods, or just looking to maintain your digestive health, the ATMAT® might be the solution you’ve been searching for.
