“The female pelvis is a powerhouse of transformation: the very throne of creation through which universal creative energy patterns course and flow”
– Rosita Arvigo, DM

Arvigo® Therapy benefits women throughout the childbearing years by enhancing fertility and conception, supporting structural changes and alleviating discomfort, providing an optimal birth position for the baby thereby easing labor, birth and postpartum recovery.

A More Comfortable & Balanced Pregnancy

Arvigo® Therapy supports the physical changes experienced by women during pregnancy. As the baby and uterus grow, additional strain is put on the uterine and pelvic ligaments and pelvic floor muscles. With regular massage, the uterus stays well-positioned, receives good blood supply, and grows strong and resilient.

Postpartum Recovery & Healing

Postpartum is a time of physical and emotional adjustments.  A new mother’s body undergoes physiological and structural changes as part of healing from labor and birth and to return to her pre-pregnant state.
