Your digestive system is key to your vitality.
When digestion is faulty, it can be hard for your body to assimilate the nutrients, vitamins, and minerals it needs, which will directly affect your well-being.
Arvigo therapy has proven to be an excellent therapy for helping address digestive issues.
Stress and tension tightens our diaphragm which restricts the natural flow of blood, nerve, lymph, and chi to the digestive system. Arvigo techniques help to release stomach muscle tension and tightness. As the diaphragm relaxes, the flow of blood, nerve, lymph and chi improves, thereby improving the function of the digestive organs and the body as a whole.
In the treatment, in addition to performing the Arvigo therapy techniques, you will learn how to do the self-care massage at home to continue to reap the benefits of your treatment.
Many of the digestive organs are very close to the reproductive organs, so it is not surprising that physical, emotional, or energy blockages affecting the digestive organs may also affect the reproductive organs. When your digestive issues are being treated, your reproductive organs also benefit.
Frequently Asked Questions
My stomach is bloated and tender. I am not sure I want it touched.
I work with many women who find that their tummies are sensitive whether it’s because of digestive issues, fertility issues, or other reasons. I use a soft touch, sometimes featherlight, and always work within your personal comfort levels. I am always pleasantly surprised that a light touch can be just as effective as a deeper touch in bringing about relief from pain and other digestive complaints.
I have suffered from constipation for literally years. How soon will I see a change?
You are a unique person in terms of your personality, physical makeup, and how your body responds to treatment. Chronic conditions can sometimes take longer to see improvement. Whether my clients experience relief quite soon, or whether they need a longer stretch of treatments – in the end, each one was happy with the changes that occurred and the improvement in their well-being.
I have had this issue for years. Everyone tells me it is related to what I eat. Do you offer nutritional advice?
I have studied some basic nutrition but I am not a nutritionist. I can offer basic guidelines that some people have found useful, and am happy to refer you to an expert nutritionist if you want to explore your diet in more depth. Sometimes a change in diet is necessary in addition to my treatments.
I am taking medication to control my Irritable Bowel Syndrome/Colitis/etc. Can your treatments help while I am taking medication?
Absolutely! The combination of Arvigo abdominal massage and reflexology helps to rebalance the underlying cause of your digestive issues, including both physical and emotional imbalances that might be causing the digestive symptoms. These issues can be addressed while you are taking medication.
