My touch therapy in massage grew out of my birth doula work. I found the importance of touch to be very powerful to the laboring mother. I also really enjoy seeing how massage brought relaxation and relief to her at this time.
With my interest in womb healing grew, I learnt more about the benefits of massage to heal and relax.
I started my training in Arvigo Mayan massage in 2006 with the Self Care training.
The benefit of Arvigo Therapy furthered my knowledge, understanding and respect about how wonderful the female body is. The uterus during its various cycles of a women’s life.
Its ability to procreate, heal, rejuvenate and regenerate itself is powerful.
The work in my Arvigo practice explores women’s health issues regarding the reproductive and surrounding organs. The relationship with each other to brings balance and wellness the female at any time in her life.
The Arvigo™ Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy™ are founded on the ancient Mayan technique of abdominal massage which is an external non invasive manipulation that repositions internal organs that have shifted, thereby restricting the flow of blood, lymph, nerve and chi.
Based on over thirty years of training and experience in massage, naprapathy, herbology, and spiritual healing, Dr. Rosita Arvigo developed these techniques which now bear her name.
The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Massage™ address position and health of the pelvic and abdominal organs. The work is best known for the correction of the prolapsed, fallen, or tilted uterus and for the prevention and treatment of benign prostate enlargement in men, as well as for relief of many common digestive disorders.
“Uduak taught me a lot about massaging, self care and other approaches when trying to conceive that i did not know before. I have polycystic ovaries and had absent periods. During my second course of Clomid i visited Uduak and her massage technique i found extremely beneficial and relaxing. I also learnt how to do this myself with castor oil at home in my own time. I managed to conceive on this second round of clomid which has given me hope and confidence for the future.”

The uterus is truly an overlooked organ that really not gotten is due respect. If not the most powerful organ is the female body. Her work is multifunctional in regenerating, creating, nurturing, supplying.
I feel truly fortunate to be doing the work I do – birth, health, nurturing. And its also an exciting time as women are wanting alternative to save their uterus from destruction, dis-ease and want to learn more of her, learn to heal her and embrace what she has to share.
“Udy’s treatments are incredibly nurturing. She set’s up easily in the comfort of your home and works with a wonderfully intuitive touch. Her Arvigo work addressed a long term issue that I had since giving birth many years previously which had left deep and uncomfortable tension in my hip. After working with Udy I felt freer in my pelvis and emotionally lighter. Thank you Udy, you have magic hands and a gift for insight and calm.”
