It is generally recommended to begin receiving sessions with an Arvigo Practitioner at the beginning of pregnancy, receiving a session each month along the course of the pregnancy. Your practitioner will develop a treatment plan that is tailored to meet your individual needs.
At your initial session, you will be taught self-care massage which adds to the therapeutic benefits of your session when you perform it at home. People who are pregnant report enhanced wellness benefits when they do their self-care massage regularly.
How it helps
A more comfortable pregnancy Arvigo® Therapy supports the physical changes experienced by people during pregnancy. As the uterus grows, additional strain is put on the pelvic ligaments and pelvic floor muscles. With regular massage, the uterus stays well-positioned, receives good blood supply and grows strong and resilient.
Arvigo® Therapy normalizes pelvic alignment allowing the uterus to guide itself to optimal positioning in the pelvis. Digestion and respiration during pregnancy are also improved.
Arvigo® practitioners around the world have repeatedly found that their clients experience significantly shorter and easier labors.
