Arvigo® Self-Care Weekend Retreat at Body Balance for Women and Men. Empower yourself with the knowledge and skill to use your own two hands to help yourself. This massage is an external, non-invasive abdominal therapy. We learn to reposition internal organs that have shifted and release adhesions and scar tissue which restores the vital flow of blood, lymph, nerve and chi for optimal health. Experience how the ancient healing and bodywork techniques of the Maya can support your reproductive, digestive, circulatory, emotional and spiritual health on this 2.5 day immersion.This 2 and 1/2 day class prepares the student to perform The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy® on him/herself only. Additionally, this class is a prerequisite to enrollment in the Professional Training for licensed healthcare practitioners.
