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.

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.
