Dr. Kern has taught ATMAT Self-Care Workshops and Hands on Health the Maya Way since 2006.

The Arvigo® Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy™ and Spiritual Healing are inspired by traditional Maya healing techniques. The techniques were wwweloped by Dr. Rosita Arvigo based on her apprenticeship with the Maya healer Don Elijio Panti and her own education, training, and research as a naprathic 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.

This 3 day class prepares the student to perform The Arvigo® Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy on him/herself only. Additionally, this class is a prerequisite to enrollment in the Professional Training for licensed healthcare practitioners. Self-Care Training covers anatomy and physiology of the abdominal and reproductive organs, addresses causes and symptoms of mal-positioned organs and demonstrates self-care techniques. Self-Care also addresses herbal, nutritional, spiritual and emotional support for the massage techniques to ensure comprehensive understanding of the modality and how it contributes to wellness.

Prerequisites: Anyone may register for this class. No prior training or licensing is required.

This continuing education course is approved by NCBTMB for 17.5 CE hours of massage therapy, by NCAAOM for 16 acupuncture PDA points, and by MEAC for 17 CE hours for midwives.
