Like most visitors to this site, it is likely that you are here following a search to find a natural healing treatment that can help with digestive and/or reproductive complaints. Whether your symptoms are acute or chronic, it can often be an ongoing battle to find peace and harmony with your belly. An Abdominal Therapy session with Danielle opens up a non judgmental, non critical space and place for you to connect back in with your belly. Those that have already taken active steps to help restore a healthy, more supportive connection with the belly have experienced radical transformation in the quality of their lives (click here for client comments). Abdominal Therapy will help you discover how even the smallest changes in the right places can have a huge impact on the health and happiness of the belly.
Danielle undertook life changing studies in the form of The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy™ which forms the foundation for her work as an Abdominal Therapist. This transformational training took her to the rain forests of Belize where she would ever so often be distracted from her books as the beautiful Belizean Blue butterfly fluttered under her nose…
The splendid, iridescent wings of “Belizean Blue” – The Blue Morpho Butterfly. These magnificent butterflies can be observed during every stage of their life cycle. It begins its cycle as a pale green egg, which looks like a dewdrop, soon after it changes into a voraciously hungry caterpillar, then into the bizarre form of a dormant pupa, and finally into a dazzling beauty. It is the art of transformation.
“Danielle has a gentleness and thoroughness to her which allows for total transformation from the inside out. Mayan Abdominal Therapy is a highly effective mode of care that I feel deeply nurtures the belly in a way no other practice does. One session was all I required to feel full restoration energetically and physically. She truly lives what she teaches.” Zoe Tuckwell-Smith
In a nut shell it is therapy for you and each of your abdominal organs.
That might sound strange but it is really quite simple and logical. Much of the physical discomfort experienced in the belly is in direct relation to how we are feeling and internalising those feelings which eventually end up being stored away in the cellular memory of each of the cells that make up each of the organs of your digestive and reproductive systems. These unique Abdominal Therapy sessions have been created to help anyone who has been struggling to fully claim back a beautiful happy and healthy belly. For those who are already enjoying a deeper connection with their belly, many have shared that this bond was the missing piece in the puzzle when all other routes via other natural and medical approaches had been exhausted.
Think about how often we use in our everyday language phrases that include reference to our stomach: upset stomach, irritable bowel, my guy instinct, had a gut full, sick to my stomach, butterflies in my stomach, the list goes on. So it is no great surprise to learn that the abdomen is the number one destination for all of life’s ups and downs to get stored away; some buried deep in the subconscious, others bubbling away on the surface where without much provocation causes our stomachs to flip!
To resolve unresolved issues in the tissues takes strength and courage along with a supportive space to sort through the clutter held within the abdomen. Each organ relishes the opportunity to connect more deeply with you. Your abdomen has often experienced a mix of medical and natural approaches to get on top of abdominal health issues but for many the feelings of wellness are short lived and symptoms often return.
Danielle has created a unique fusion of healing techniques that aligns the physical, mental, emotional and energetic needs of both you and your belly. She is one of only a few Certified Arvigo Practitioners in Australia trained directly by Dr Rosita Arvigo in The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy™ and combines her training and experience in this ancient healing technique with other supportive modalities including:
a gentle, touch activated technique accessing Universal Life Force Energy through the hands, to restore natural health and balance on a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level.
“A state of ‘thoughtless awareness’ in which the excessive stress producing activity of the mind is neutralised without reducing alertness and effectiveness.”
based on the principle that congestion or tension in any part of the foot mirrors congestion or tension in a corresponding part of the body.

receive ongoing personalised support, encouragement and guidance from wherever you are in the world
