What is ATMAT?

The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy™ are a modern form of ancient Mayan massage techniques that were developed by Dr. Rosita Arvigo after her apprenticeship with traditional Mayan healer and elder Don Elijio Panti and Traditional Mayan Midwife Ms Hortense Robinson.

This gentle, non-invasive therapy is a holistic approach to aid in digestive and reproductive health.  Specific massage techniques guide the pelvic organs into proper position while freeing up the flow of blood, lymph, nerve and chi in the body.
