Women, do you or your daughters suffer from intense menstrual discomfort such as debilitating pains, headaches, backaches or worse? This is not normal, contrary to what may be said by the medical establishment or general public.
The period is referred to as the “little curse” but it doesn’t have to be. Old cultures like the ancient Maya and Chinese knew this was a clear sign from the body that things were not as healthy as they could be. The Maya people developed abdominal massage to clear out congestion and stagnation in the area and to gently reposition the uterus. The uterus sometimes causes bodily discomforts, especially around menstruation time, by leaning on blood vessels, nerves, or even surrounding organs.
Arvigo® Therapy is gentle, external, and takes the best of the traditional Maya belly massage and combines it with modern techniques, to create a thorough, unique belly, womb and hip care program. For many women, a few sessions (2 to 4) is enough to correct most ‘bad’ period pains and discomforts. Each session is catered to each unique woman’s needs and each woman is taught a home care version of the belly massage so she can care for her own belly and womb. The work is equally beneficial for fertility, improved digestion and general well being. Arvigo® Therapy compliments well reproductive assisted technologies too such as IVF.
Belly and womb care is essential for the young and the more seasoned woman alike, as it makes for healthier periods, digestion and later years. It improves conception ability, birthing with more ease and aids menopausal pains.
