2016 brought some highs but it is sure to say that it brought an awful lot more lows. It was during one of those lows that coincidentally Judith Mulgrew, founder of Skin Medi Spa, made contact with me.
Based just off the ever glamorous Lisburn Rd, Skin Medi Spa is just as stylish with its beautiful decor and even more beautiful staff. I definitely think stress plays a massive impact on someone’s ability to conceive so its a relief to walk into Skin Medi Spa just to breath a sigh of relief and know you are about to have an hour or two of utter relaxation.
Judith and I got chatting and I explained how I had suffered from IBS and UTI’s since being a teenager and she thought Arvigo Maya Massage could be something that would help. I’ve never been a lover of Alternative Therapies and always thought they were really just another crazy fad but when Judith explained that she had travelled almost 5,000 miles to the rainforests of Belize to be trained by the founder, Dr Rosita Arvigo, then I knew there had to be something more to it.
When I met Judith I knew this was definitely something that was worth a try. After only a few minutes I felt a sense of relief that she understood and that I was in safe hands. Her understanding of my personal experiences and her knowledge of the treatment was incredible and obvious from the outset.
The Arvigo Techniques of Mayan Abdominal Therapy is based on the concept that the “correct positioning of the reproductive and digestive organs is of optimum importance for pelvic and abdominal health and fertility.”
After one treatment, I had no more UTI’s. After three, my IBS was drastically reduced and the pain a lot less. Three months after my final session and a continuation of my homework and I found out I was expecting!
Arvigo Maya Massage, is incredibly relaxing. Think a back massage but on your stomach. My first session lasted around two hours and it was at that point that Judith got to know a little about me and my background and then the first treatment was completed. Afterwards, she directed me to my homework i.e. diet recommendations and some massage techniques to do nightly – these definitely helped me to destress before falling asleep! Each session after that was purely devoted to the treatment. If you don’t come out of the treatment feeling relaxed and rejuvenated then I do know what could relax you!
If you suffer from any of the below, then Arvigo Maya Massage could be for you:
- Emotional stress/anxiety or depression
- Polycystic Ovaries or endometriosis
- Painful, irregular or absent periods
- Women undergoing menopause or HRT
- Couples preparing to conceive
- Couples experiencing difficulty conceiving
- Couples undergoing conventional fertility treatments
- Prolapse (uterus/bladder/bowel)
- Painful intercourse
- Prostate problems (including prostatitis)
- Erectile Disfunction
- Digestive upsets
- Varicose Veins
- Tired Legs
- Frequent Urination
- Stomach problems
- IBS, indigestion and constipation
I can’t thank Judith enough for contacting me in the first place and introducing me to Arvigo Maya Massage. Not only did it relax me every two weeks but it met my aims – no UTI’s since my first treatment, reduced stress levels, substantially reduced occurrences of IBS and almost a year later from my first treatment and I am 17 weeks away from my little one arriving.
