The Arvigo® Therapy Pregnancy Massage
Rosita Arvigo during her work in Mexico in the 1960’s, but especially in Belize whilst working with Don Elijio became close to and worked closely with the Naturalist Midwives; especially Miss Hortence Robinson, Miss Beatrice Waight and Miss Juana Shish. Who as part of their delivery procedure and care for the pregnant mothers throughout their pregnancy, performed the Maya Abdominal Massage on their ladies, Rosita has developed these adapted techniques and now teaches them along side The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy® as an advanced course in Pregnancy Massage.
Jacqueline trained with Rosita in this advanced massage and now offers pregnancy massage to her clients. This work connects mother and baby, it also helps supporting the uterus, placenta positioning of baby for optimal function. When baby is due there are techniques that help during delivery. The additional modalities that the therapists use help during different times during the pregnancy in maintaining health too. Post partum all the Arvigo techniques help in restoring the Uterus to optimum position, ligaments return to ‘normal’ and cleansing uterus to make sure no debris is retained after birthing.
