Somatic Experiencing® was developed by Dr. Peter A. Levine as a way of healing trauma and stress disorders. This gentle work helps clients release trauma that is bound in the body and helps build resilience. I am a Somatic Experiencing® practitioner in training, currently in my advanced year. I integrate this work with the other modalities I use.
Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy (ATMAT)
ATMAT is a modality developed by Dr. Rosita Arvigo, synthesizing techniques she learned from Don Elijio Panti, a traditional shaman from Belize. The core of the treatment is an abdominal massage that helps increase blood flow and lymph drainage in the abdomen and lower body. This helps support muscles, veins, arteries, and nerves. The massage also helps align the organs of the pelvis for optimal function. Symptoms that can be relieved by this treatment include digestive disorders; anxiety; painful, heavy or irregular menses; low back pain; and many others. My focus with these treatments is on gastrointestinal health and spiritual/emotional wellness, but I am happy to offer this treatment to anyone on a healing path.
