Arvigo Therapy

About Arvigo Therapy

The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy® was developed by Dr Rosita Arvigo. She has lived in Central America for over 30 years where she apprenticed with Don Elijo Panti, the last of the traditional Maya healers. Rosita also studied with Hortence Robinson, an experienced herbal midwife of Belize. The technique has traditionally been used to help with a whole range of gynaecological and digestive disorders. It can be applied throughout every stage of a woman, man or child’s life.


She combined her knowledge of anatomy, physiology and naprapathy (study of muscles, ligaments, connective tisues similarly to Osteopathy) with her extensive acquired background in traditional healing methods, and formulated the Arvigo Therapy.
