So, WHAT IS the arvigo technique of maya abdominal massage?
The Arvigo Technique of Maya Abdominal Massage is a technique of abdominal massage which is an external non-invasive soft muscle tissue manipulation that re-positions internal organs that have shifted (like the uterus), thereby restricting the flow of blood, lymph, nerve and chi throughout the entire body.
Normally the uterus leans slightly over the bladder in the center of the pelvis, about one and a half inches above the pubic bone. It is held in this position by muscles, the vaginal wall, and ligaments that attach it to the back, front, and sides of the pelvis. Uterine ligaments are made to stretch to accommodate a growing fetus inside and to move freely when the bladder or bowel is full. The ligaments and muscles can weaken, causing the uterus to fall downward, forward, backward or to either side.
A uterus in any of these positions is called tilted or prolapsed. Modern medicine has little or nothing to offer women with this problem. Options may include using the birth control pill, muscle relaxants, or surgery, and women are generally told, "your uterus is tipped, but that is normal and don't worry about it."
Yet women have a laundry list of physical and emotional symptoms that can be addressed and prevented with these simple, noninvasive massage techniques. When reproductive organs shift, they can constrict normal flow of blood and lymph, and disrupt nerve connections. Just a few extra ounces sitting on blood and lymph vessels can cause havoc throughout the different systems in the body.
By shifting the uterus back into place, homeostasis, or the natural balance of the body, is restored in the pelvic area and the surrounding organs. Toxins are flushed and nutrients that help to tone tissue and balance hormones are restored to normal order. This is essential for healthy pregnancy, labor, and delivery.
Old adhesions from invasive treatments to the pelvic and abdominal area, including fibroid tumors, endometriosis, and cesarean delivery are diminished when addressed by Abdominal-Pelvic massage. In addition, digestion, urinary and bladder problems can be helped.

What Women Are Saying:
”At one point during the treatment, I had a vision and I saw what looked like Jillian standing by me but she was all white. There were beams of white light pulsating down from above and inside of her and out through her hands as she worked on me. The light in her hands became a white dove (a sign of the Holy Spirit) and it spread it wings and flew off. Umm…what? Well, whatever, I don’t know, but I’m taking it because it added to the amazing experience.
By the time we began work on my lower abdomen (where all the trauma hung out), I was floating and felt like a limp noodle. I continued to follow Jillian’s guidance for the breath and felt my body opening and releasing tension I didn’t even know I had. When she placed her hands on my C-section scars, my mouth immediately began to tingle with what felt like electrical current. This is something I am familiar with when working with breathwork clients and I recognize it as energy being released. As soon as I felt it around my mouth, I knew in my heart that it was all of the unexpressed fear and sadness and anger I had squashed down inside my belly. I knew it was connected to this event and for the first time I realized how strong I actually was to have gone through this trauma…and suddenly felt pride and honor and SO MUCH LOVE for my body.
Besides the incredible spiritual aspects of this session (which I am eternally grateful for), the physical experience of this work is like nothing I have ever experienced. I went to massage therapy school, I have had many massages in my life, but this was not a massage. It was SO much more. It was mind, body, and spirit work and It was truly enlightening.” — April Linsen
“My intention [in booking a session] was to satisfy my personal interest in Maya Abdominal work. I had several miscarriages, ivf, etc. Once Jillian synched to my breathing, she patiently kneaded my pelvis, smoothed and worked old adhesions to bring blood flow back into the corners of my womb. I have a miracle baby. About 6 months after my abdominal massage, and with gentle practice on my own (not the same, but alas my truth), we discovered we were pregnant! Our toddler is now 4...and perfectly lovely.” — Michelle Mayberry

Re-position a ‘tipped’ uterus
Q: My belly and body feel broken since my last child was born. Is this for me?
A: Yes, Yes, Yes. Together we can work on bringing strength and vitality back to your belly and pelvis (and your entire body). Whether you've had a relatively optimal birth, a traumatic birth experience, or anything in between, we can work together to bring your body into greater healing an alignment.
Q: I am having pain during intercourse. Might this bodywork help?
A: Yes! Depending on your unique physiology, and the experiences you've had, there could be a number of reasons why intercourse is painful. Some of the most fulfilling work I have done, has been to help women, who have had cesarean births, reduce their scar tissue, and thereby lift the womb into a more optimal position, which naturally reduced pain during intercourse.
Q: I have heard that optimal pelvic and womb health, has a 'youthing' effect. Is this true?
A: Yep. It's true. The more blood flow you're getting to your reproductive system, the better flow of energy (or chi) through your body, the more you will experience a natural radiance, and glow, that I believe, is an indicator of excellent sexual well-being and vitality.
Q: I'm afraid for my belly and womb to be touched. Is that normal?
A: Yes! The belly, pelvis, and womb, are very intimate areas of the body. It's normal for you to have some fear of another person's hands here. So you know, I always share with you exactly what I'm doing, as I'm doing it, so there are no surprises. For instance, before I begin the womb portion of the massage, I guide your hand to the areas in which I'll be working, so you can get a sense for where my hand's will be.
Q: Is this massage internal at all? Like, do you work inside the vagina?
A: At this time, no. I do not work internally, inside of the vagina (or even on the vulva) with women. I am currently studying to be able to offer that very important work, for women, and I'll let you know when I'm trained and certified. Woohoo! But no, this particular abdominal-pelvic body work I offer, at this time, is all done externally. The closest I get to your genitals is the very top of your pubic bone. I also do lymph massage along your inner thigh, and some pretty deep work on your sacrum and tailbone. But again, I will tell you what we're working on, and when.
Q: How much are your 90 minute follow up sessions?
A: one (90 minute) abdominal-pelvic massage follow up session is $197, or, you can purchase a package of three (90 minute) follow up’s for $497.
