Services Offered – What to Expect
Initial consult: The practitioner will review your health history and your areas of complaints. Then you will receive a front and back massage and self-care instructions. Pelvic steaming may be suggested, as an optional adjunct technique. Herbal supplements may be recommended. Please allow 2 hours for the initial consult.
***Please note that you must fill out forms and email to firstname.lastname@example.org at least 24 hours before your appointment. If forms are not received, the appointment will be auto-canceled and will need to be rescheduled. Find intake forms at the link at the top of this page, labeled “Forms & Insurance”. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation on this matter.
Follow up sessions: Please allow 75-90 minutes for follow up sessions.
Pelvic Steaming: This is an optional part of the therapy and may be booked separately by those who have already gone through the initial consult. Please allow 20 minutes for this modality.
Timing: While the Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy™ may be appropriate for most people, timing is important. If you are a woman, it is best to schedule a session when you are not menstruating. If you are actively trying to conceive, it is best to schedule a session in the window of time that falls after your menses and before your ovulation. If you are undergoing IUI the best time to come is 24-48 hours before the IUI. If you are undergoing IVF the ideal windows to come are before retrieval & transfer.
Caution/Contraindication: IUD, recent surgery within 6 weeks and abdominal mesh are contraindicated. Also, we do not offer this modality for pregnant women at this particular time, though we do plan to offer it in the future.
