Maya Abdominal Massage Kaneohe HI

My massage in Mexico included Maya uterine massage, an ancient technique used to reposition the displaced uterus. According to the Maya, if a woman’s uterus is out of center, so is her whole being. Returning the uterus to its proper position in the pelvis brings a woman into a state of balance—and in my case, into an instant state of fertility.

Maya Abdominal Massage

By Catherine S. Gregory

My path to motherhood came as a surprise. I didn’t expect to jumpstart my fertility on the beaches of the Yucatan, but that’s exactly what happened when I booked a relaxing, two-hour Maya massage session with a traditional healer. After the massage, the healer told me through a translator that women sought his work when they had difficulty conceiving. He looked me in the eye as he spoke to me, and the translator reported that I no longer had fertility problems. I was taken aback because I hadn’t mentioned my concerns about not being able to conceive. But his words proved true. Not long after returning home to a loving reunion with my partner, we discovered I was pregnant.

My massage in Mexico included Maya uterine massage, an ancient technique used to reposition the displaced uterus. According to the Maya, if a woman’s uterus is out of center, so is her whole being. Returning the uterus to its proper position in the pelvis brings a woman into a state of balance—and in my case, into an instant state of fertility.

During my annual exams in the past, gynecologists often mumbled something about my tipped uterus, but whenever I probed for more information, they reassured me: “Don’t worry; lots of women have this issue.” Yet as I learned more about the uterus through the Maya healing perspective, I realized my retroverted uterus actually contributed to my years of menstrual difficulties and low back pain, as well as my inability to conceive. My backwards-facing cervix had made the basic journey of sperm-meets-egg impossible.

Maya massage has gained popularity in the US and Europe through the help of Dr. Rosita Arvigo, an American naprapathic physician who trained for more than a decade with one of the great Maya shamans of Belize, Don Elijio Panti. Arvigo has trained more than 200 healthcare practitioners to perform the Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Massage (ATMAM). Her holistic healing method centers around uterine massage, using noninvasive, external massage to reposition the uterus and other abdominal organs and make skeletal corrections to enhance the flow of blood, nerve impulse, lymphatic fluid, and life energy to those organs.

Arvigo practitioners also look to the menstrual cycle for clues to reproductive health, but the position of the uterus ranks as their most important assessment. “Undiagnosed uterine prolapse is a big issue affecting fertility,” says Arvigo, explaining that high-impact sports, falls or injuries to the tailbone or sacrum, heavy lifting, and even pregnancy and childbirth can easily displace the uterus. Repositioning it often corrects the issues causing infertility, such as uterine lining health, ovarian dysfunction, hormonal imbalance, and obstructions such as blocked tubes, surgical adhesions, or fibroids.

Although uterine massage is an ancient technique—a specialty not only of the Maya, but also of other indigenous culture...
