FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

HOW IS ARVIGO® THERAPY APPLIED?

This is a non-invasive, external, massage technique that gently guides internal abdominal organs into their proper position for optimum health and well-being. The technique works to relieve congestion and blockages by improving The 5 Systems of Flow (arterial, venous, lymphatic, nerve and chi).   This results in improved organ function by releasing physical and emotional congestion from the abdomen.

WHAT ARE CAUSES OF ORGAN MISALIGNMENT?

  • Injury to the sacrum or tailbone from a fall, car accidents, etc

  • Pelvic ligaments that have weakened due to overstretching during pregnancy and birth

  • High Impact exercise, running on cement surfaces, high impact aerobics, etc

  • Lifting & carrying heavy objects before or during menstruation and too soon after childbirth

  • Time and gravity

  • Past surgeries

  • Weak pelvic floor muscles

  • Chronic muscle spasm around the low back and sacrum

  • Emotional armoring

WHAT ARE THE CONTRAINDICATIONS TO RECEIVING ARVIGO® THERAPY?

When applied under the guidance of a practitioner there are few if any contraindications.  In general no direct massage is applied over the uterus in the following situations:

  • during menstrual cycle

  • within 6 weeks post normal vaginal birth or 3 months post Caesarian birth

  • when IUD is present for birth control

  • if there is Cancer or active infection in the abdominal cavity

  • during First trimester of pregnancy

CAN YOU PRESCRIBE MEDICATION?

It is outside my scope of practice to diagnose conditions or prescribe medication. I am able to make suggestions for dietary and herbal supplements as needed and I will work with your medical practitioners to bring our perspective and recommendations forward when appropriate.

DO YOU ACCEPT INSURANCE?

Your health and wellness are my priority and are not limited to what is covered by health insurance policies. Like many massage and wellness practices, we are an out-of-pocket expense.
