The services I offer are:

Swedish Massage: One of the most commonly taught and well-known massage techniques, Swedish massage is a vigorous system of treatment designed to energize the body by stimulating circulation. Five basic strokes, all flowing toward the heart, are used to manipulate the soft tissues of the body. The many benefits of Swedish massage may include generalized relaxation, dissolution of scar tissue adhesions, and improved circulation, which may speed healing and reduce swelling from injury.

Prenatal Massage/Postpartum Massage: A combination of massage techniques adapted to the specific needs of pregnant mothers. Special positioning and cushions are used for optimum comfort. 

Pregnancy massage is a wonderful complement to your prenatal and postnatal wellness. The sensory experience brings greater awareness to your body and your baby, enhancing your pregnancy and birth experience. Pregnancy massage reduces stress; promotes relaxation; relieves muscle pain in the hips, back, neck, and legs; helps reduce edema; and improves labor outcomes. Beyond birth, postpartum massage helps restore the abdomen and weight bearing muscles and joints.  Massage in the postpartum period helps bring the body into its pre-pregnancy alignment.  A massage within the first week of postpartum feels wonderful.  It flushes lactic acid out of the tissues, relieving sore and achy muscles.

Arvigo® Technique of Maya Abdominal Therapy:   Maya Abdominal Massage Technique is well suited to assist in the relief and healing of heartburn, constipation, IBS and other digestive problems. This technique is also perfect for women who have irregular cycles, endometriosis, fibroids, PCOS, menopausal or other hormone fluctuations and infertility. Other issues that may be relieved are headaches, backaches, and lymphatic stagnicity.

Maya Abdominal Therapy® for Pregnancy:  


Arvigo® Therapy supports the physical changes experienced by women during pregnancy. As the baby and uterus grow, additional strain is put on the uterine and pelvic ligaments and pelvic floor muscles. With regular massage, the uterus stays well-positioned, receives good blood supply, and grows strong and resilient.

Arvigo® Therapy normalizes pelvic alignment allowing the uterus to guide itself to optimal positioning in the pelvis.

 Digestion and respiration during pregnancy are also improved.

 Arvigo® practitioners around the world have repeatedly found that their clients experience significantly shorter
and easier labors.  Midwifery-based practices that have integrated Arvigo® Therapy into their care have reported positive differences in birth outcomes as evidenced by more efficient contractions and shorter labors.

It is advisable to begin working with your Arvigo® practitioner as soon as possible to provide you and your baby with the maximum benefits these sessions can offer you. Ideally you would schedule six to nine pre-natal sessions and a six week post partum session as well.

Vaginal Steam Bath: The vaginal steam bath is actually eons old and is seen in almost every indigenous culture and many mostly Eastern cultures as a common and routine ritual for women's health. It is commonly used in almost all of the Caribbean, Mexico, Belize and Guatemala and in each region of the globe the native plants and flowers are used for their soothing, energizing and even antiviral/antibacterial properties.
