Arvigo® Therapy in Belize
The Arvigo Techniques of
Maya Abdominal Therapy® (ATMAT)

were developed by Dr. Rosita Arvigo, DN. based on her apprenticeship with the Maya healer Don Elijio Panti and her own education, training, and research as a naprapathic physician.  

 Arvigo Therapy® Treatment

This technique is performed externally by gently guiding and supporting organs back into their optimal position, allowing for improved functioning for optimal health and wellness.

Arvigo® Therapy is best known for addressing misalignment or congestion in the reproductive organs of both men and women, as well as many common digestive disorders.


This techniques help to restore the body to its natural balance by correcting the position of organs that have shifted and to improve the vital flows of energy, blood, lymph and nerves in the abdomen.  They address and can release emotional and energetic tension.  This assists to prevent the progression of chronic disease symptomatology while improving the body’s ability to self repair and balance.

The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy® support and enhance health and wellness throughout the life cycle for women, men, and children.
