Abdominal Therapy Collective

The Abdominal Therapy Collective are inspired by traditional  Maya healing techniques. The techniques were developed by Dr. Rosita Arvigo based on her apprenticeship with the Maya healer Don Elijio Panti and her own education, training, and research as a naprapathic physician. The techniques work to restore the body to its natural balance by correcting the position of organs that have shifted and restrict the flow of blood, lymph, nerve & chi energy.

Vivian Menjivar

Vivian Menjivar began her apprenticeship with Dr. Rosita Arvigo in 2000 after having suffered with a uterine and bladder prolapse and a laundry list of problems. These included most of the signs and symptoms of a displaced uterus. After studying Spiritual Healing and Professional Care training with Dr. Rosita Arvigo, she knew she would be doing this work on herself and others for her rest of her life. This work became her life’s work
