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.

“Symptoms from trigger points in the chest and abdomen muscles may be subject to more misdiagnosis and misdirected treatment than those in any other part of the body.”  (Clair Davies, author of Trigger Point Therapy Workbook)   

In this advanced hands-on, live teacher in the classroom class, you will learn the science and theory of trigger points in the flat muscles of the abdomen.  You will also learn to palpate and release these trigger points.  Be prepared to learn and practice the abdominal work that can release a whole host of client symptoms of discomfort. 

Bring pen and paper, massage sheets, hand towels, and lubricant.  You should wear comfortable clothes.  Women should wear athletic bras to make working the belly and getting on and off of the tables easier.  Although we will review the anatomy of the abdominal muscles, to get the most out of this class, you should have a basic understanding the origin and insertions, and actions of the abdominal muscles.  Participants will be working on each other’s abdomens during class. Class size is limited in order to assure ample instructor feedback for each participant.
