Abdominal/Sacral Fertility Massage

The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy™ and of Fertility Massage are founded on the ancient Mayan techniques of abdominal massage which are external non invasive manipulations that reposition the internal organs that have shifted, thereby restricting the flow of blood, lymph, nerve and chi.

Based on over thirty years of training and experience in massage, naprapathy, herbology, and spiritual healing, Dr. Rosita Arvigo developed these techniques which now bear her name as well as other therapists like Clare Spink who has developed her own sacral/fertility treatments. This modality incorporates a holistic approach to health care which includes massage, anatomy and physiology, herbology, nutrition, and emotional and spiritual healing. Dr. Arvigo believes that with any natural healing technique, these areas must be simultaneously addressed to promote optimal health.

The abdominal/sacral fertility massage addresses position and health of the pelvic and abdominal organs. The work is best known for the correction of the prolapsed, fallen, or tilted uterus and for the prevention and treatment of benign prostate enlargement in men, and for relief of many common digestive disorders.

Neuro-lymphatic Chi Nei Stang

An abdominal massage starting with a back massage which will open the neurolymphatic points of the body, followed by an abdominal massage with the aim of helping digestive issues, reproductive problems, detoxification or simply for a deep sense of connecting to our second brain. The arms are as well worked on as the meridian’s lines of the small and large intestines run through them. 

Indian Head Massage

An uplifting experience for the upper back, shoulders, arms, neck, scalp, and face that stimulates the flow of energy often blocked by stress or through postural misalignment including that created by spending long hours seated at the computer! Be treated to a gentle yet deeply powerful seated massage.

Ideal for alleviating eye-strain or tension in the shoulders, upper back, and neck; headaches; improving the health of the scalp and stimulating hair growth. Due to the seated position, this treatment is not suitable during pregnancy.

Remedial Massage (Deep Tissue)

Remedial/Deep Tissue Massage helps you to get to the root of intense or long-standing pain and bring about health and healing — ideal for actively involving you in promoting your own health and healing, both during and after massage. Using firm deep pressure, this massage is less of a full-body relaxation, and more of a focused therapy to release tension from the problematic areas and associated muscle groups. The longer-term effect is the release and relaxation of the problem area.

Swedish/Holistic Massage

The classic full-body relaxation solution. Take time out of a hectic schedule to feel comforted and warmed by this gentle method for restoring balance and stimulating circulation, the perfect solution for restoring your natural balance.

Thai Yoga Massage

Delight in the mental clarity and physical flexibility that have been the gift of yogis and Buddhist monks throughout the ages with Thai Yoga Massage’s combination of acupressure techniques and yoga stretches. Wear loose comfortable clothing, so that you can be guided into stretches. Pressure will be applied to the the Sen lines (similar to the Chinese meridians) with thumbs, palms, feet, and elbows in a rhythmic rocking motion and with gentle manipulation. This combination of movements dispels chronic tension and gets the body’s chi — or vital life force — springing back into action.

  • Reiki and Thai foot massage are also available.
  • Craniosacral sessions can be part of a treatment or on their own as well as castor oil packs.
  • Cacao circles and women’s groups are happening around London and the world.

Yoga

From a yin style to a strong vinyasa flow, classes are tailored to your own needs if we work on a one to one. In classes we’ll often move through a slow deep flow followed very often by few poses in the yin style to close gently and integrate.

  1. One of the things I really miss from my trip to Finca de Vida is the abdominal massage from Sandrine! It gave me great relief from digestive issues and there was a sense of “release” of energy, like a flow that felt activated in a certain part of her routine. Hippocrates said “all disease begins in the gut.”, so take care of your tummy 🙂 Highly recommended!

  2. I’d never heard of abdominal massage until I met Sandrine. Her massages helped to heal my stomach in three sessions and the pain has not returned! With each massage I experienced the pain lessening and now I have close to none, and most of the time none. I had no idea that a massage could heal stomach pain, especially since I’ve had this pain for so long and it had never been suggested by anyone until Sandrine. I’m very grateful that our paths crossed…it has saved me from much discomfort. Sandrine is a very talented, nurturing and healing woman to work with. Thank you, Sandrine.
