This professional workshop will give you the complete Abdominal Therapy treatment – anterior and posterior – and so much more…  

Learn our abdominal massage and other supportive therapies to help with painful periods and difficult digestion, enhance fertility, support pregnancy and more! Our posterior sequence supports the abdominal work by addressing structural alignment and optimizing nerve flow the organs. Based on the work of Dr. Rosita Arvigo and sponsored by the Abdominal Therapy Collective.

In addition to 4 days of in-person time to learn the anterior and posterior bodywork, there will be 4 online sessions for anatomy and theory, caring for specific conditions, supportive treatments like castor oil packs, steams,  and plant medicine.

In our first session together you’ll be introduced to our most powerful tool: YAM. Your Abdominal Massage gets you started right away experiencing the profound changes these simple techniques can achieve.

This 4-day class prepares students to employ The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy®  in a professional setting and for their own self-care. While it is a stand-alone class, and you will leave prepared to use the anterior techniques in your clinic, it should be considered Part One of two. The posterior techniques are offered in a second 4-day workshop and are essential for comprehensive care of your clients.

Prerequisite: Professional license in healthcare. Continuing Education Credits (CEU) are available for  Acupuncturists and Massage Therapists.

I plan to teach this workshop twice a year on the Front Range in Colorado.  Please send an email if you want to be notified when additional dates are set. 

TBD in Longmont/Niwot, Colorado
