Maya Abdominal Massage for Men

By CNY Healing Arts Published on

Maya abdominal massage is a non-invasive, external method of healing. It involves manipulation of the abdomen and pelvis in order to release physical and emotional congestion or blockages within the body. Although abdominal massage techniques have changed invariably over the years, the method we use today at CNY Healing Arts was largely developed by master herbalist and naprapathic (a branch of chiropractic) physician Dr. Rosita Arvigo.

This treatment is not recommended immediately after abdominal surgery or where an active infection or cancer is present in the pelvic region. In addition, those who receive a Maya abdominal massage should be cautious of whom they allow to perform the technique. The importance of a licensed practitioner is immense!

Here at CNY Healing Arts we have a select staff of practitioners who are all either certified in The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy (ATMAT), which includes Maya abdominal massage, or are working towards their certification. At our Syracuse branch, Erika Lutwin and John Capozzi are our licensed massage therapists who are both certified in ATMAT. Both Erika and John specialize in orthopedic, sports, injury, deep tissue, and pre-natal massage, among others. Erika is also the coordinator of Rainforest Remedies for all three of our Healing Arts centers. To contact John or Erika, email them at and respectively.

At our Rochester branch, Erin McCollough is our very talented and licensed massage therapist. She has completed both professional training in The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy and advanced ATMAT for fertility and pregnancy.
