Maya Abdominal Uterine Massage (MAM)


Maya Abdominal Massage is an ancient, traditional technique that has been passed down for generations in the Maya culture of Central America. And it's available here in Denver!

I learned about Maya Abdominal Massage (MAM) after I experienced a burst ovarian cyst. Talk about painful...whew! When I heard that this work could actually reduce my PMS symptoms AND help to prevent any ovarian cysts from returning, I was on board!!! And I have been amazed by the more mood swings prior to my period, no more horrible cramps that brought me to my knees, no more crazy pre-menstrual cravings for Ben & Jerry's Chocolate Fudge Brownie ice cream... My cycle changed dramatically; no more PMS and no more potential ovarian cysts! And I am happy to see that my clients have had similar experiences.

This external massage modality is valuable for women at every stage of fertility because a number of issues that women experience that are related to their menstrual cycles can be the result of a displaced uterus. According to statistics, 75% of all women will experience a displaced uterus at some point in their life. Displacement can occur as a result of myriad circumstances like falls, participation in athletic activities, walking on cold and/or hard surfaces, even from traumatic emotional or physical events. MAM can help to return the uterus to its proper position in a gentle, non-invasive way. It can also help to maintain the health of muscles and organs in the pelvic bowl. MAM is useful for young women who may be experiencing difficulty with symptoms associated with PMS and other physiological problems associated with menstruation, for women seeking fertility enhancement, for women recovering from the rigors of childbirth, and for those in need of relief from some of the unpleasant affects of menopause. This modality is exciting because it is a self care tool. Clients may receive the work at Healing Space then learn to perform the technique on themselves.

The Arvigo Techniques Maya Abdominal Massage technique was taught by Rosita Arvigo who apprenticed for twelve years under Don Elijio Panti, a well-known Maya Bush Doctor and Healer in the Cayo district of Belize.

I have been to numerous massage therapists over the years and Natalie Gentry is the best. I have the utmost respect for her professionalism, as well as her technique; whether it is for a sports injury, stress relief, relaxation, or Maya Abdominal Massage. Natalie has the gift of the perfect touch, and intuitively knows when to go deeper or lighten up. I find her presence calming and the entire experience healing. I highly recommend any of her massages, preferably a long one!"
