Abdominal Therapy

Abdominal massage works deeply into the diaphragm, impacting all the bodies systems. It allows you to breathe more deeply and increases circulation in the belly and pelvis.
“The uterus is the woman’s core, if it is out of balance, her whole life is out of balance – physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually”

About Abdominal Therapy

Deep within our pelvic bowl lies the root of our power – our ability to create and receive. Strongly connected to the pelvis is the jaw and throat and a channel for our self-expression. Releasing tension in the pelvis opens up the gates for creating and receiving and opens up the throat allowing us to express what wants to come out.

The uterus is held in place by ligaments and these can become stretched for a variety of reasons, some women may have been told they have a ‘tilted’ uterus and this could be the cause of many ‘female’ problems.

  • Abdominal massage aims to assist homeostasis and hemodynamics, allowing the body to adjust and find it’s own balance.
  • By working deeply into the diaphragm we can impact all the bodies systems and allow you to breathe more deeply and increases circulation in the belly and pelvis.
  • Circulation brings vitality to all your organs – optimizing digestion, energizing the nervous system, endocrine system, and supporting reproductive health.

Marisa offers a delicious belly massage based on the lineage of Don Elijio Panti, a Maya Shaman and traditional healer in Belize, Dr Rosita Arvigo, a Naturopath from Chicago and Miss Hortence Robinson, a herbal midwife in Belize.  Originally qualified in 2005 in Swedish Massage, Marisa’s technique has evolved over the years through her journey healing her own menstrual health challenges, receiving body work, her yoga practice, spiritual development training and mothering her two daughters.

“The female pelvis is a powerhouse of energy transformation; the very throne of creation through which universal creative energy patterns course and flow.”

How does Abdominal Therapy work?

The primary cause of many reproductive and digestive complaints is a congested pelvis or abdomen, which, if unattended, will progress from symptoms to chronic disease. Abdominal massage supports the body’s natural healing capacity and looks to resolve the root cause of dis-ease. By improving the five systems of flow, NAVEL (Nerve conduction, Arterial blood, Venous blood, Energy flow, and Lymphatic flow), it helps to improve balance within the body, improve hemodynamics, and support the body’s self- regulating, self- healing, self- regenerating healing capacity.

What you get to take home?

One of the best bits about having an abdominal massage from Marisa is that she can teach you how to massage yourself, a gift for life. With this massage you can develop a deeper understanding of your own body and see faster results from the work.

What to expect from a treatment?

At your first 2 hour appointment, Marisa will spend time taking a detailed case study and finding out how she can best support you. It’s a chance for her to hear your story and together identify your needs. Next you receive an abdominal and back massage. At the end of your first appointment you will learn a self-massage that you get to carry home with you and practice for life. Marisa will follow up with an email summary of your conversation and any further suggestions she has to assist your progress.

If you would like any follow-up appointments you might want to combine the abdominal massage with a pelvic steam beforehand to help bring warmth and circulation into the pelvis.  Also if you are not based in Turks & Caicos you can have an online appointment where Marisa can consult on your case study and teach you the self-massage through a zoom appointment.
