During pregnancy the body undergoes significant changes that can cause pain and discomfort for moms-to-be. In this article, I provide an overview of the ways in which Arvigo® Therapy and acupuncture can help women with aches, pains and tightness during pregnancy. From pre-conception to post-partum, these safe and gentle therapies can be used according to what a woman’s body needs at each stage.
The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy® (also known as Arvigo® Therapy or ATMAT) have long been sought out by women seeking to improve their fertility, whether trying to conceive naturally or as a support to ART.

Arvigo® Therapy: Safe at All Stages of Pregnancy
From pre-conception to post-partum, these safe and gentle therapies can be used according to what a woman’s body needs at each stage. We use modified techniques in early stages of pregnancy and add additional techniques that are appropriate as a woman’s body progresses through the stages of fetal development, all the way up to pre-labour.
Post-partum Care and Healing Traditions
In the post-natal period this therapy is an amazing way to help a woman feel restored and heal faster. Post partum care is an ancient part of many traditional cultures, and seen as an essential part of healing from birth. At 6 weeks post-partum, gentle techniques can be applied to the abdominal area and lower back. At 3 months, the full Arvigo® Therapy techniques can be applied to help encourage the proper healing of the ligaments, uterus and surrounding area. This is also an excellent method to help women heal from a Cesarean birth and may help reduce scarring.
