We are very lucky to have two excellent practitioners who offer different forms of abdominal massage. Both are applicable to reproductive and digestive health issues. The bottom line, is that issues in the abdomen have both a structural and functional side, and these therapies can support optimal blood flow, lymphatic flow and a non-invasive way to deal with scar tissue and adhesions. At Darou Wellness, Barbara Poczyniak, R.Ac. offers Arvigo therapy, and Patti MacGregor, RMT offers Mercier massage.
What is Arvigo Therapy®?
Founded on an ancient Maya technique from Central America, Arvigo Therapy® is an external, non-invasive massage therapy. This therapy gently stimulates circulation and blood flow within the abdominal area. These techniques address the optimum position of abdominal organs and support the healthy function of digestive and reproductive systems.
Who can benefit from Arvigo Therapy®?
Arvigo Therapy® helps to address misalignment and congestion in the area of the reproductive and digestive systems. Therefore, it may help with issues related to fertility challenges and reproductive issues such as:
- Painful periods
- Uterine fibroids
- frequent bladder infections
- Ovarian cysts
- Displaced uterus
- Peri-menopause or menopause symptoms, and more.
For digestive issues, it can be useful to help treat disorders such as:
- Urinary issues
- Low back ache
- Post surgical scar tissue recovery.
One thing that is unique about Arvigo Therapy*, is that you are also taught Self Care to practice at home, which helps to sustain the good circulation and blood flow initiated by the professional treatment. By doing Self Care massage regularly you carry the treatment on long after you have left your appointment, which helps you feel more in control of your well being and are physically and emotionally connected to the process.
What is Mercier/Fertility Massage?
Mercier Massage Therapy is a technique used to help restore the health and general well-being within the female pelvis. Building a solid foundation and core is a healthy, non-invasive solution to many fertility problems, and pelvic massage is a common-sense approach to increasing your chance of conceiving (while also improving your overall health). This program can be used as a stand-alone regime, or as a complement to medically-assisted reproductive technologies.
Who can Benefit from Mercier/Fertility Massage?
Mercier massage therapy is for women with reproductive tract adhesions. These adhesions act like glue disrupting the function of affected organs. massage involves gentle stretching to loosen tightened areas of soft tissue this is continued until the tension is released decreasing the adhesions. This technique is used to help restore health and general well-being within the female pelvis and aims to reconnect you to your divine feminine.
Mercier / Pelvic massage has proven to help the following issues:
- Persistent pelvic pain

- Pelvic Scarring or adhesions from previous surgery
