The treatment was originally known as The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Massage™ (MAM). This has been renamed The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy™ (MAT). There are references to both MAT and MAM and both refer to the same treatment technique.
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. A MAM treatment with Danielle creates 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 feedback). MAM 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.
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 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™. She has since gone onto complete advanced training with Rosita in Supporting Pregnancy from Preconception through Postpartum.
The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy™ is a non-invasive, external, massage treatment. It is centred around ancient Mayan techniques that help restore balance to the pelvic and abdominal organs. By relieving congestion and blockages found in the circulatory, lymphatic and nervous systems as well as opening up the flow of chi (energy), the organs of the belly can begin to experience greater health and vitality.
“I felt an immediate connection to Danielle, she exudes warmth and peace and I felt so comfortable and soothed by her presence. The treatment had me floating on clouds and I really sensed that I let so much go on an emotional and spiritual level. The experience is different to normal deep massage and although light in touch the level of deep relaxation shows how incredible the human body is once given the chance to let go and be still. Danielle described this to me as ‘Letting the mind take a back seat and your spiritual and physical being take a turn in the driving seat’ that explains perfectly what I felt. I am so blessed to have had this opportunity to meet Danielle and give my body such an incredible, beautiful experience, I feel that my body has been reminded to function as it is supposed to and not simply responding via memory of habits that have developed over the years.”
