PROPER UTERINE PLACEMENT
Arvigo® Therapy supports the physical changes experienced by women throughout life. An Ideal & healthy uterus leans slightly over the bladder in the center of the pelvis about one and a half inches above the pubic bone. It is held in this position by muscles, the vaginal wall & ligaments that attach to the pelvis & lower spine.
Uterine Ligaments are made to stretch with the monthly cycle and during child bearing. These ligaments and muscles can weaken and cause the uterus to fall downward, forward, backward or tilt to either side.
A Uterus in any of these positions is referred to as Tilted or Prolapsed. Modern medicine has little or nothing to offer women with this issue. - Options may include Birth Control, Muscle Relaxants or Surgery... women are generally told "you uterus is tipped but that it is "normal" and not to worry about it.
However this experience often is accompanied by Painful Menstruation, Lower Back Pain, Challenged Fertility, Compromised Circulation, Issues with elimination and the urinary system; A whole laundry list of physical & emotional symptoms.
These can be addressed and prevented with the simple, non-invasive massage techniques. When the organs of the digestive and reproductive system shift they can constrict normal flow of blood and lymph, and disrupt nerve connections. Just a few extra ounces of organ tissue sitting on the blood & lymph supply can reek havoc throughout the entire body.
By guiding the organs back into place Homeostasis, or the natural balance of the body is restored. With proper circulation and balance in the belly and pelvis, toxins are flushed from the system, nutrients that help to tone the tissue and balance hormones are restored to ideal order and proper function.
Adhesions & Scar tissue from invasive treatments to the pelvis and abdomen area including fibroid tumors, endometriosis, cesarean delivery and any abdominal surgery are diminished when addressed by these techniques.
