    Welcome to the Mamoz website!

    We hope you enjoy looking through the site which aims to provide you with all the information you need to decide whether you wish to book in for Maya Abdominal Therapy with Danielle Rickwood. If you have further questions or queries, please visit the contact page. If you are looking for information on a particular reproductive or digestive condition, you can use the search facility at the top or bottom of any page.

    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 Art of Transformation

    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.

    What is Maya Abdominal Therapy?

    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.

    This massage is effective for both men and women.

    “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.”

    "Danielle’s exceptional kindness and love of the Feminine provided my wounded soul and body with a truly safe place to exist and start healing. The humanity and touch was a drastic and welcome change from the cold clinical world of diagnostics and harsh clinical terms that had come to define me as a Problem with feet. Body and soul made happy. Now we’re talking! Thank you Danielle!"

    "It seems every time I see you shorty after I start to understand so much more about myself… You truly are an amazing person :-)  Meeting you has been such an integral part of my life…"

    "Thank you for sharing your beautiful gift of healing.  With your help this year, I have been able to explore a deeper part of myself that I love. You are an angel on earth."

    "MAM healed a burden I didn’t know I was carrying. A huge shift took place within me. Afterwards, I was drained but felt a profound sense of lightness and peace"

    "I truly believe my treatments with Danielle greatly assisted me connecting with my body in a more positive way and helped me to become a lot more relaxed about conceiving and put me into a state of ‘trust’ that if I relaxed and remained open nature would take its course and sure enough it did."

    "Mayan Abdominal Therapy is such deeply profound work. I feel it has initiated the birth of the Sacred feminine within me, as all the cellular memories are released, and my true essence is finally set free. I see Danielle’s role as being like a spiritual midwife, helping us to give birth to ourselves. Heartfelt thanks for this precious gift."

    "Thanks very much for your nurturing treatment. I definitely felt and am feeling the benefits, I feel more open and relaxed in my whole abdo area and feel some shifts in general and feeling greater clarity and balance in myself..more grounded and less cluttered in myself."

    "Thank you so much, for a beautiful, powerful treatment. You have a lovely touch; very gentle and reassuring. As for my uterus, well whatever we did – the talking about her, the treatment to her – we woke her up! I love, love, loved the way you spoke of her. Really brought her into being. All night last night I kept half awakening – maybe 10 times – and every time she was talking! I have no idea what she was saying, but talking she was. It was all I could think about as I half woke and went back to sleep. Chatter, chatter, chatter! Wow, she has a lot to say!"

    "The Mayan Abdominal Therapy for me was an utterly magical experience. I found the sacral massage very relaxing and releasing, and the abdominal massage, for some reason, filled me with a profound sense of joy; great waves of joy. I wanted to jump off the table and dance with joy!"

    "Firstly thank you so much for the wonderful massage. It was a most enjoyable experience which left me feeling totally relaxed and nurtured! You have the wonderful ability to at once provide a safe, caring environment, while instilling a sense of confidence in your healing abilities and a knowing that you understand individual client needs. In what was potentially a challenging experience, I nevertheless felt at ease throughout the process. Secondly, thankyou also for the knowledge you impart regarding the self care techniques. I really am so excited at the prospect of the gradually improving health of my reproductive, digestive, endocrine etc systems and knowing I am learning the procedures to treat myself!"

    "I have suffered from IBS since I was 12 years old and it has progressively got worse through the years, Danielle’s expert massages have helped me to be able to relax my stomach and by teaching me the methods I will be able to continue the treatments even though I am moving abroad."

    "I just wanted to write to let you know I have noticed a great difference from our first massage. As you know I suffer from bloating and a distended stomach. Well after the massage I went to work and a colleague said it looked smaller!! The next day I definitely noticed this too!! It has shrunk and it feels a lot softer. It looks smaller at the sides and top. My husband thinks you’re amazing and so do I. I feel like there is light at the end of a very long tunnel. It would mean so much to me if I didn’t have to suffer the embarrassment of this anymore. Thank you for your skill, care, efforts, and gentleness. I am so excited I can hardly contain myself."
