What is Maya Abdominal Massage? 

Maya Abdominal Massage is a traditional healing technique practiced for thousands of years by the Maya people and similarly by other indigenous cultures around the world. It is a non-invasive external technique performed slowly and gently, intended to create balance and circulation back into the energetic center of our being. In particular, it focuses on the lower abdomen and pelvic region which holds the uterus and reproductive organs.

How does Maya Abdominal Massage work? 

The treatment gently manipulates the muscles, fascia, ligaments, and other connective tissues that hold the digestive and reproductive organs in place. Displacement of these organs may occur due to trauma, many years of poor posture, repetitive habits, or muscles that have become lax or too tense. This massage technique stimulates blood flow, loosens adhesions and encourages organs to re-align to the optimal position. This allows the uterus to be more receptive to nutrient/oxygen-rich blood, increases nerve communication, and improves the flow of chi/prana/ch’ulel/life force.

Energetically speaking, many Maya healers focus their entire treatment on the abdomen, as the abdomen is the storehouse of human emotions. Emotions such as fear, anger & resentment, tighten the muscle fibers around the arteries and organs, blocking blood flow. Having some clearing in the area allows for blockages to be released and healed.
