Abdominal Therapy Collective (ATC) Classes
Abdominal Therapy practitioners bring their own gifts and traditions to the mix. Still, the essence of Abdominal Therapy remains the same: a nurturing massage with profound therapeutic benefits.
Abdominal Therapy encompasses simple and intuitive folk massage techniques and combines them with anatomy, physiology, and other focused learning. The work constantly evolves as Dr. Rosita Arvigo and the educators of the Abdominal Therapy Collective continue to upgrade and enhance the techniques to align with current research. As abdominal therapy is an organic protocol, refining the practice is important to building upon the foundations of Rosita’s work.
