Supporting Pre & Perinatal Wellness With Arvigo® Maya Abdominal Therapy

Here are the systems and how this phenomenal technic may help your experience before, and after birth to be exceptional! This modality of therapeutical massage may be a complete game changer with your first or subsequent pregnancies. 


A More Comfortable and Balanced Pregnancy

Arvigo® Therapy supports the physical changes experienced by women during pregnancy. As the baby and uterus grow, additional strain is put on the uterine and pelvic ligaments and pelvic floor muscles. With regular massage, the uterus stays well-positioned, receives good blood supply, and grows strong and resilient. Arvigo® Therapy normalizes pelvic alignment allowing the uterus to guide itself to optimal positioning in the pelvis. Digestion and respiration during pregnancy are also improved.

 Arvigo® practitioners around the world have repeatedly found that their clients experience significantly shorter
and easier labors.  Midwifery-based practices that have integrated Arvigo® Therapy into their care have reported positive differences in birth outcomes as evidenced by more efficient contractions and shorter labors. It is advisable to begin working with your Arvigo® practitioner as soon as possible to provide you and your baby with the maximum benefits these sessions can offer you. Ideally you would schedule six to nine pre-natal sessions and a six week postpartum session as well.

Postpartum Recovery & Healing
