Hands on Health the Maya Way

Join Maya Abdominal Therapy teacher and practitioner Michelle Brown for a nurturing retreat to discover the ‘why’ and ‘how’ to support your own digestive and reproductive organs by using an ancient massage technique that gently guides them back into proper placement. Through this therapy we restore proper flows of blood, lymph, nerve impulses and energy throughout the belly. A variety of organ displacement symptoms can be helped this way. This tradition emphasizes the placement of the uterus, which can ‘wander’ in the pelvis throughout a woman’s life, contributing to female issues such as painful menses, bladder incontinence, PMS, infertility, painful intercourse, and difficult menopause. These techniques can also help normalize post-surgical scar tissue that can result from surgery, such as cesarean birth. Other symptoms of organ displacement include low back ache, constipation, indigestion and digestive disorders such as IBS, benign swollen prostate for men, and low energy (to name a few). This approach to belly vitality is gentle, non-invasive, and easy to learn for yourself. It is beneficial to both men and women. Come discover what it can do for you!
