Why you may seek an Abdominal Therapy treatment

There are many reasons you might be looking for help, from soothing digestive troubles, painful periods, fertility support, or relief from prostate or pelvic issues. Abdominal Therapy encourages balance and optimal function in the belly. We offer whole-person support to clients from a variety of backgrounds and lifestyles.

What to expect in an Abdominal Therapy treatment

It begins with an exploration of your health history, current circumstances, and goals in a virtual meeting, or in-person as part of your first session.


The in-person Abdominal Therapy treatment involves an external massage of your entire abdomen. The diaphragm, digestive and reproductive organs are all addressed. A full treatment also includes your back, hips, and sacrum, too.


Massaging these areas systematically and thoroughly, we help optimize circulation… and we’re not just talking about blood. Abdominal Therapy affects all the systems of flow in your body: blood, lymph, nerve conduction, and life force or chi.


Finally, your therapist will teach you how to perform Your Abdominal Massage (YAM) to increase treatment benefits for the long term.

What is YAM?

Early in her professional practice, Dr. Rosita Arvigo recognized the need for clients to continue their healing with their own hands, in their own time, in their own homes.


With this in mind, she developed her unique self-care massage to encourage and empower her clients to take charge of their healing.


Although Your Abdominal Massage is a simple practice and takes only 10 minutes a day, it has profound, lasting effects on your health and well-being.


It’s not unusual for clients to report – even years later – that YAM has become an integral part of their daily lives.
