2018 – Off to a Great Start!

I am so excited to be heading to San Ignacio, Belize next week to teach the Arvigo Institute’s Advanced Pregnancy class. This will be my third trip to the birthplace of the Arvigo® Techniques. I look forward to meeting this wonderful new group of practitioners and sharing with them not only the work, but the landscape of Rosita Arvigo’s education in traditional Maya Healing. Along with studies of pregnancy applications for the Arvigo® Techniques, we will be visiting the Rainforest Medicine Trail on a tour led by Rosita, and Xunantunich – remains of a ancient Maya city. I will be returning March 2nd, so schedule your appointment and I will share stories of my adventures!

Upcoming classes:

Belly Basics for pregnant women is now scheduled every 2 months for the rest of the year. Click the button at the right to register for the next class.

Arvigo Level One – Self-care workshop  in Santa Fe April 27-29.  This class is already filling up! register at www.arvigotherapy.com. I will be teaching again in Boulder in September.

New Session Offerings:

Mobilize for Birth: – prepare your pelvis for a smooth delivery.

Rebalance after Birth  Relieve low back pain, pelvic pain, pain with intercourse. Speed healing from diastases and cesarean birth, or just re-set to ensure a quick and full recovery.

Based on an approach developed by physical therapist Lynn Schulte of the Institute for Birth Healing, these sessions enhance the Arvigo techniques for pregnancy and postpartum by providing specific soft tissue, pelvic floor and bony release maneuvers to increase pelvic mobility in support of the birth process and to help free the patterns and traumas of birth from these same structures postpartum.

New Class Offering!

Belly Basics: simple tools for a comfortable pregnancy and an easier birth

I am really excited about this project! It was inspired by a request from The Mother House to come talk with their pregnant and postpartum women about the Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy®.

As I considered what I could offer, it occurred to me that all pregnant women could benefit from this information and some simple tools for self care. I also realized I could extend the benefit by donating the nominal class fee to an organization that in some way serves women and children – in this case One Heart World-Wide (training skilled birth attendants in Nepal).

I’d like to give you a good working knowledge of your pregnant anatomy – what moves where and how the stress points change as you grow – so you understand the mechanisms of common discomforts and difficulties of pregnancy and birth and can appreciate why Arvigo self care massage and other tools I will share work so well.

Arvigo and Healing from Birth

A Wonderful Addition: Internal Pelvic Floor Work

Last week I attended a most amazing workshop: Healing from Birth with Lynn Schulte, PT (www.intuitivehandspt.com). We spent three days learning about patterns that birth leaves in the body and how to unwind them. While these patterns serve to bring a baby through, they can lead to pelvic pain, backache, proplapse, incontinence and a host of other difficulties postpartum.

No matter how old your baby is, your body may still be “birthing” . It’s never too late to shift these patterns and relieve the resulting symptoms. If you have given birth by cesarean, or have developed diastasis recti, the belly really needs extra support and active manipulation to regain optimal health. 

I am very excited to combine these skills of internal pelvic work, structural alignment and specific tissue release  with The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy® and I expect great results!

Speaking of learning opportunities, there is still room in my next Arvigo® Self-Care class April 20-22nd in Santa Fe, NM (counts towards continuing education for Midwives, Acupuncturists and Massage Therapists). Learn abdominal massage, vaginal steams and other forms of self care to support your own health and well-being. See my “upcoming classes” for more information.
