The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy is a non-invasive, external, massage technique. It guides internal abdominal organs into their proper position for optimum health and well-being.

Self-Care also addresses herbal, nutritional, spiritual and emotional support for the massage techniques to ensure comprehensive understanding of the modality and how it contributes to wellness.
