Massages

The following is a list of massage treatments offered by BodyWorks Massage. See "Your First Massage" for frequently-asked questions.

Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy®

The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy® are founded on an ancient Maya technique of ABDOMINAL MASSAGE. This technique is performed externally by gently guiding and supporting organs back into their optimal position, allowing for improved function 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. The techniques effectively alleviate tissue congestion and organ constriction to improve the vital flows of energy, blood, lymph, and nerves in the abdomen. It addresses and can release emotional and energetic tension from the abdomen. This assists to prevent the progression of chronic disease symptomology while improving the body’s ability to self repair and balance.

The following are the most common symptoms and conditions that Arvigo Therapy may help address:

Labor Massage Class

This private class is for the pregnant woman and her birthing coach. Often, the coach feels a bit helpless seeing a loved one go through the pain of labor. Traditionally, there is little to do except perhaps coach breathing.

This hands-on class provides useful, easy-to-learn massage techniques that the coach can perform on the pregnant woman while she's in labor. I can personally attest to the effectiveness of the techniques. They really helped me during my labor, and my husband will tell you he appreciated having a "job" so he felt helpful and had something of his own to focus on.

$40/45-minute private class

All of the above services are offered with Vernon, CT Massage Therapists.
