I want to talk about my experience with the Arvigo Technique of Maya Abdominal TherapyTM because it has been a really profound journey that changed my perception of my female hormonal balance and gave me an important connection with my belly. So I think it can really help many women and men.
My husband had to go to the States, last February, for a job interview, he thought I should have come too, in case they would accepted his work position and we would have to move there. So I contacted a dear expert of natural childbirth that was living right in the same place I had to go. She put me in contact with Lisa Kelly, a lovely lady who runs ‘The Red Tent Wellness’ in Boca Raton, Florida. We immediately bond and she offered my to receive an Abdominal Therapy. I accepted with joy, I think life it’s giving you right what you need for your personal growth, so if I was there it should have been for a solid reason. She gave me a long intake form that took me some hours to complete. It had been quite an experience to go through all those questions and made me think about my female health.
So the next day I went to the Red Tent, a beautiful warm house, with my mug of coffee, being in the States I couldn’t resist to the ‘take away coffee’ and all my good intentions to let go of any of my thoughts and just receive what life wanted me to know. Before starting, Lisa went through my answers and ask me if I ever fell on my back... well yes many times being a wild kid. So she said that I might have my uterus not in an optimal position... weird, I thought, ‘nobody ever told me something like that’. Lisa performed this beautiful treatment, a massage, a castor oil pack and a vaginal steam. I came out from it really relaxed and full of new energy. In general I was suffering for a deep PMS and dark blood menses, both at the beginning and in the end of the period. You might think this is disgusting, but it is very useful if you know that it is not optimal for your health and it is quite a symptom.
Two days later my menses came and it was pink, no cramps at all and no PMS. For me already a huge outcome. So back to Italy I start looking up on the web to look for some therapist to have it done already and to send some clients of mine I thought they could benefit from it. Well nobody there. So I went on the Arvigo website and I found someone in UK. I wrote her that we needed to have therapist in Italy. So we organized the first level, The Self Care. After those magical 4 days of workshops, with Louise Crockart and Hilary Lewin, I kept on practicing the Self Care on myself every day. My period at the time was also very irregular, which is not the best when you want to conceive a baby.
We decided also to have a Professional Care in Italy, but I had to be a Professional first. So I went to London, right after my husband and I moved to Holland. I was in a shock for the move and for the giant step I had just done in my life, but Hilary and Louise made me immediately feel comfort and helped me going through my emotion. So we had a week of treatments and practicing ATMAT on hour mates and it was amazing.
Now I have a 29 days of period, really precise, no PMS, no cramps and it is really red. With ATMAT we learn how to take care of our personal needs starting from the very beginning. If our hormonal flow is well balanced, life can appear very much different and when you feel good in your tummy, that is also a wonderful way to life a better life.
Everybody is different, so the outcome is very personal but I think it is worth to try to find the best way for us to feel great in our body-mind-energy system, no matter what we believe in.
