About Us


The uterus is the woman's core, if it is out of balance, her whole life is out of balance; physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually.

If we were to go back in time, we could find the threads of our work in every culture, reaching across the globe from village healers to midwives. 
In Central America, these threads were picked up by Dr. Rosita Arvigo, who wove them together with a scientific understanding and offered a well-crafted gift of Abdominal Therapy (sometimes refered to as Mayan Abdominal Massage).

Today, Abdominal Therapy practitioners bring their own gifts and traditions to the work, providing a nurturing massage with profound therapeutic benefits.

Our Mission

Abdominal Therapy is a profoundly effective blend of ancient and modern therapeutic modalities promoting balance physically and energetically. Our dedicated, highly qualified practitioners and educators inspire clients and students to take charge of their health through education and personal care. Through creating a whole body approach to wellness, inclusive of all, we commit to changing the world, one belly at a time.  

Our Vision

We envision a world where all people are empowered and engaged participants in their own wellbeing. We have a highly cohesive community offering ongoing support for clients, students, and practitioners, as well as global outreach programs for diverse and underserved communities. We hope to inspire good health and spiritual practices for generations to come. As educators and practitioners, we commit to learning and growing. At times, we may get it wrong. We will embrace each opportunity humbly, as a chance to do and be better.

Our Value

The value of our work is its unique ability to reconnect people to their own innate wisdom and healing capacity. Abdominal Therapy restores a whole body and spirit approach to health. The exemplary value of our education for professionals and lay people is maintained through the integrity of our educators and practitioners. We hold in reverence our traditional and scientific roots, while striving to be inclusive of all.
