Abdominal Therapy

unwinding the world, one belly at a time…

For optimal digestive and reproductive health


Abdominal Therapy combines deep abdominal massage and back massage with dietary and lifestyle guidance to support women and men challenged with digestive, reproductive or urinary system complaints.  Arguably the most powerful part is the self care programme of  massage, breathing techniques, yoga postures and dietary and lifestyle changes which invites you to literally take your healing into your own hands.

Restoring balance takes care and time. It is a commitment to your health.  Over the years the best results have happened when clients take a longer term approach to their healing, rather than having a quick fix attitude, my packages are designed with this in mind.

How it works

Book a Zoom call to tell me a bit more about you and find out if Abdominal Therapy can help. I offer a free 30 minute consultation.

Common complaints typically addressed with Abdominal Therapy include: Digestiveconstipation, indigestion, IBS, bloating; Reproductive & Urinary – painful or irregular periods, PMS, prolapse of bladder or uterus, fertility challenges, fibroids, endometriosis, cysts, hysterectomy preparation or recovery and menopause, lower back pain, pelvic pain, stress incontinence. The techniques are perfectly suited for Pregnancy and Postnatal, to support your body as it changes and to restore energy and vitality.

I have designed my packages with both new clients in mind and those who want to continue to integrate these treatments into an ongoing health care plan.  There is no one size fits all, but what is quite clear to me is that one off appointments, whilst they may feel great, won’t address any long standing or deep seated issues.

Even when the initial complaints have resolved or are being managed, many clients continue to have sessions on a monthly or bimonthly basis as an integral part of maintaining and sustaining their health and wellness.  Stress exacerbates all symptoms of imbalance and all massage therapy helps to reduce stress.

Prices from £150* for Initial Assessment – Health history, consultation, Abdominal Therapy Treatment & treatment plan – 90 minutes

More about Abdominal Therapy

…unwinding the world one belly at a time…

Abdominal Therapy is rooted in techniques passed down through many generations of traditional healers in Central America.  Rosita Arvigo brought it to the West directly from Don Elijio Panti, a Mayan Healer who worked all his life healing with hands on techniques and herbal remedies.

It is a deeply releasing, non-invasive, external massage of the abdominal organs and lower back.  It stimulates the flow of blood, lymph, nerves and chi through the abdominal and pelvic region, having wide reaching effects throughout the whole system.  Organ function may be improved and physical and emotional congestion may be eased.

Encouraging self responsibility is central to the holistic principles of this treatment and requires you to engage in the healing process.

While most clients will come to this therapy to address a particular condition, you do not need to have any symptoms to benefit from the healing nature of this work, remembering always that prevention is better than cure!

Abdominal Therapy has been used to address many common complaints including constipation, indigestion, IBS, skin conditions, varicose veins, lower back pain, and migraines.

It is traditionally used to support women at all stages of life balancing the function of the reproductive system thereby addressing such things as painful or irregular periods, PMS, prolapse of bladder or uterus, fertility challenges, fibroids, endometriosis, cysts, hysterectomy preparation or recovery and menopause.

The techniques are also modified for used during pregnancy and in the postnatal period to restore energy and vitality. Postnatally it is possible to address pelvic floor issues, stress incontinence and mild prolapse.
