"Baby girl, made her debut yesterday afternoon. Labor started exactly 12 hours after my Ready Set Go with joke, I woke up at 4:44 a.m. contractions started around 5:30, and 6 hours later I was holding Hope in my arms! It was a dream natural childbirth, I gave birth on my side so my hips are doing great and there was no tearing. I can’t thank you enough for the education and support you gave me and my girl."

- In gratitude, Kristen

Abdominal Massage Therapy in the tradition of Rosita Arvigo is founded on the ancient Mayan technique of abdominal massage which is a style of massage that reposition's the internal organs and pelvis which may have shifted, thereby restricting the flow of blood, lymph, nerve and chi.


Based on over thirty years of training and experience in massage, naprapathy, herbology, and spiritual healing, Dr. Rosita Arvigo developed these techniques which now bear her name. This modality incorporates a holistic approach to health care which includes massage, anatomy and physiology, herbology, nutrition, and emotional and spiritual healing. Dr. Arvigo believes that with any natural healing technique, these areas must be simultaneously addressed to promote optimal health.


As a certified professional practitioner of the Abdominal Therapy, Marissa has completed the Self Care Training, Professional Training Workshop, and the Advanced Prenatal Techniques from pre-conception to postpartum as well. This is a 2+ year training with lots of 'hands-on' time under the watchful eyes of certified Abdominal teachers and Ms. Rosita herself. Marissa has completed the advanced Certification training.


What to expect in a session

  • Comprehensive review of your personal health history and current health care needs.

  • Abdominal massage focused on aligning reproductive and abdominal organs

  • Evaluation and application of structural alignment of spine with attention to the sacrum , lumbar and thoracic spine.

  • Instruction in Self Care Home techniques to enhance your professional treatment session

  • Recommendation of complementary modalities:

  • During pregnancy, sessions will be based on which trimester you are in and will help to support the uterus to optimize a healthy pregnancy, labor, and delivery. Many common complaints may be relieved such as heartburn, lower back pain, pubic pain, pressure in the pelvic floor, and more.

  • There is even a technique called READY, SET, GO which is the Abdominal answer to a full term mama hopeful for labor to begin soon!
