The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy®
Welcome to the home of
Winchester Arvigo® Therapy
If you find yourself here searching for a way to ease chronic menstrual or abdominal problems then look no further! I have been exactly where you are.
My name is Cat Manasa Hawkins and I am an Aromatherapist, Massage Therapist, Healer, Artist and a practitioner of The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy® (ATMAT).
Arvigo® Therapy has changed my life and now, as a fully insured and qualified Practitioner, I offer treatments to others. Based in Winchester Hampshire, easily accessible via the M3, I open my home and therapy room (aka The Womb Room) to you.
The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy® (ATMAT) offers a unique service. Unlike other therapies, Arvigo® Therapy, literally puts your healing in your own hands.
During your first session you’ll learn the unique self care massage techniques. By learning how to massage your own abdomen you’ll deepen the connection between you and your body, bringing relaxation and encouraging flow. This self care massage enhances the treatment you receive and gives you the tools to continue treating yourself in between sessions.
I work mainly with women who are experiencing ongoing difficulties with their menstrual cycles, painful periods, irregular bleeding, PMS, PMDD, endometriosis and the menopause, however this work can be very helpful for those suffering from any kind of stress symptoms such as IBS, anxiety and depression.
This work is not exclusive to those who have a uterus! Men and women without a uterus can still benefit greatly from abdominal massage and a self care routine.
Arvigo® Therapy is also an excellent path for those experiencing fertility problems and difficulty in conceiving.
With every act of self-care your authentic self gets stronger, and the critical, fearful mind gets weaker.
Every act of self-care is a powerful declaration:
I am on my side, I am on my side, each day I am more and more on my side.Susan Weiss Berry
What to expect during a session:
- Comprehensive review of your past and present healthcare needs focusing on reproductive and digestive health.
- Upper and lower abdominal massage to help improve circulation to abdominal organs.
- Massage to back, sacrum and hips to further stimulate circulation to the organs of the abdomen.
- Evaluation of body posture.
- Instruction in Self Care massage which is done at home and helps to enhance your professional session.
- Recommendations of complimentary modalities to support your health and wellness that may include: The wearing of a Faja – a traditional lower abdomen supportive wrap, Bajos – a traditional herbal pelvic steam bath of the Maya.
- The application of Castor oil packs and Lifestyle education.
Arvigo® Therapy is founded on ancient Maya techniques of non-invasive, external abdominal massage.
It stimulates circulation and blood flow within the abdominal area, supporting the body for optimal function of digestive and fertile health and wellness. It is a therapy that can be applied throughout every stage of a woman, man or childs life.
Self Care massage at home is a vital aspect of the overall treatment. You will receive the self-care massage techniques during your initial session.
