If a woman’s uterus is out of balance then so is she

Maya Abdominal Massage

You’ve suffered from period pains for as long as you can remember and it’s become the norm. Perhaps you’ve been trying for a baby and things aren’t happening as quickly as you had hoped. Particularly difficult if those around you are getting pregnant by the dozen. You may have tried Chinese medicine, hormonal medication, herbs or even sitting tight and hoping for the best! Physical therapy of the pelvis and the organs held within it can make a real difference in the body by increasing the flow of blood, lymph and energy to the area.

Don Elijio Panti, the great shaman of Belize passed on the ancient techniques which form the basis of ATMAT. He knew that the uterus (or uterus space if you no longer have a uterus) and how it functions is a really good report card indicating how your whole body is generally doing. Likewise, your whole body is affected by your uterus.

In ATMAT sessions, we can look at:

  • the assumption that period pains are unavoidable, that they are “a given”, this needs to be called into question. There’s lots you can do!
  • how healing or reducing the debilitating symptoms of endometriosis can be achieved through good, well informed self care including self massage.
  • how the first step to resolving difficulties conceiving is to look at how you can increase fertile cervical fluid and a prolonged luteal stage (the time in your cycle that supports pregnancy).
  • the myth that the menopause is the beginning of a long and arduous decline. When navigated well, this is your time to shine!


Is maya abdominal massage painful?

If you have a difficult cycle then you may be worried about increased pain. The work will be as gentle as you need it to be and stronger if you prefer. Your feedback will be the guage as to how deep we go.

Is it an internal massage?

Due to the nature of the work, this is a common assumption! You’ll be pleased to hear that the answer is NO! ATMAT is a lovely treatment that is not invasive.

When is the best time to come for an ATMAT treatment?

Cycles are complex and there are often concerns about optimal times to receive a treatment. It is best to avoid coming if you are on your period. If you are trying for a baby and you have had unprotected sex during your fertile times then it’s best to wait until the end of your next period.

How many treatments will I need?

When you are trying everything you can to resolve an issue, things can get very expensive. Ideally you would come twice a month for three months. However, the beauty of this work is that you will practice a daily form of self massage which will deepen the effects of the therapy. If your purse strings are stretched, you can continue the work at home!

How it Works

The initial session is 2 hrs which will include an in depth consultation where together we can be the detectives, finding clues about where the imbalances could be hiding.The treatment will include the belly work as well as focused back treatment aimed at aligning the pelvis. Then comes the magic of the self massage where you will learn that the power of healing lies in your own hands!
