Build nourishment, energy, and flow.
Your belly is one of the most vulnerable parts of your body. Rich with blood, fluids and the vital organs of digestion, detoxification, elimination and reproduction, your belly is a storehouse for emotion and deep feeling. You may guard this area by: standing in a closed posture, gripping your muscles, holding your breath, using food to self-medicate or by getting emotionally constipated.
Therapeutic touch for your belly and pelvis can be profoundly healing. The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy (ATMAT) is a comprehensive indigenous system of hands-on health care that has been practiced in Central America for thousands of years. It relieves congestion, promotes wellness in your internal organs, helps to prevent chronic dis-ease, brings calm to your nervous system, and assists your body to self-repair quickly and easily. If you experience indigestion, constipation, irritable bowel syndrome or heartburn, ATMAT can give you supportive self-care tools so you can take charge of your health.
ATMAT promotes circulatory flow of blood, lymph, nerve, hormone and energy within the belly, pelvis, whole body and energy system. This releases toxins and opens pathways for your true nourishment. Benefits include healthy reproductive functioning for men and women at all ages and stages of life, especially during times of stress, challenge and transition. Women may experience improved organ placement and function, pain-free menses, healthy fertility and pregnancy, effective labor and birth, and graceful menopause. Men may experience improvements with prostate health, varicose veins, premature ejaculation, urinary frequency and in some cases erectile dysfunction.
Release heaviness, toxins and emotional pain.
You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
For a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves.
