The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy (ATMAT) is a non-invasive external massage. It guides internal abdominal organs into proper position for optimum health and well-being. ATMAT improves organ function by releasing physical and emotional congestion from the abdomen. This treatment is effective for both men and women.
ATMAT applies anatomy, physiology and massage therapy with ancient traditional Maya healing techniques to address common female and male complaints. ATMAT works by relieving congestion and blockages to improve the flow through the pelvic bowl of blood, lymph, nerve and chi/energy systems to prevent progression of chronic disease symptomology. We assess and restore uterine, pelvic, sacral, coccygeal and musculoskeletal alignment.
Dr. Rosita Arvigo DN studied and developed these techniques with Don Elijio Panti, a traditional Maya Healer (H’Men) in Belize, where she has lived for 40 years. ATMAT combines modern science with traditional healing and wisdom to produce a holistic path to physical, emotional and spiritual well-being.
