The digestive system, sometimes referred to as the brain of the body due to its sensitivity to a emotional states, also improves dramatically with this therapeutic treatment.
Emotions and stresses are often stored in the belly, impacting the digestive system by causing the small intestine and colon to be twisted or kinked, leading to blockages in the flow of peristalsis. Unexpressed emotions can tighten the muscle fibres around the arteries and organs, constricting the flow of blood, and enzyme secretion.
When the body reacts to stress or danger, a fight or flight response is triggered. Blood flow to the muscles increases in order to prepare our body for action, and so the digestive system becomes compromised. When the stress is constantly activated, the effects on the body accumulate.
The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy® relaxes the diaphragm allowing optimum blood flow to the organs of digestion, as well as aiding enzyme secretion and reducing any constriction around the oesophagus. It also helps to calm and centre your energy, and help you stay grounded.
It can help with issues around indigestion, constipation, gastritis, heartburn and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
