I am going to share my experience, so you can see why I highly recommend ATMAT, as practitioner, as client, as lover, as whatever, just do it!
It was february 2012 - almost Valentine's Day - my husband was called from a company in Florida for a job. He managed to get my flight and hotel payed for, because we might had had to move, therefore I needed to be on board too. The company placed us in Delray Beach, in a very nice hotel on the beach. Before leaving from Italy to the States I contacted Barbara Harper - I was a birth counselor at that moment and she is one of my female heroes. She was not there at that moment but she put me in contact with Lisa Kelly and we organized a doulas gathering. I met Lisa the day after I landed in the Palms Country and we bonded immediately, so much that she offered me a treatment... cool I thought, gonna have a relaxing morning tomorrow! She gave me 6 pages to fill, with all sort of questions about my digestion and reproductive health. It took me a lot of time to do my homework but was actually very cathartic and I enjoyed to dig deeply into my health.
The next morning I received a Castor Oil Pack, an Arvigo Treatment and the cherry on top a great V Steam! My mind was literally blowing away and my body flying... What did just happen to me???
We came home, in Italy back than, and my menstruation was totally changed, no pain, no dark thick blood, just pink easy nice menses. I needed to know more, but I couldn't find nobody near by. For the last years part of my work had been inviting super teacher from all over the wold, organize workshop and translate them. So I though I could do something to get some Arvigo Practitioner in my country.... I contacted the first teacher that came up in Europe, Louise Crockart and with Hilary Lewin we gave the first Self Care Arvigo Workshop in Italy.
I was so excited that I decided to become a practitioner myself, but in November 2013 my husband and I were moving to the Netherlands so I was not too sure. In the end I moved and after 2 weeks I was in London to attend the workshop, the PCT. I decided to really go for it and back home I already had 2 clients from the Arvigo, they were in NL and nobody was practicing it, so they were waiting for me to come... From that moment on I am blessed because I am doing the best job possible for me, I can put in contact women with their womb and see their body blossoming and getting back their power and their strength.
We organized another Self Care in Italy and this november we are going to have the first PCT in Italy, but it is time to bring ATMAT in the Netherlands and this is my next step!
