The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy® - A Brief History

More than 40 years ago,  Dr. Rosita Arvigo relocated from Chicago to Belize to deepen her studies of medicinal plants in the dense rainforest she would call home.  On a chance visit to her small clinic, Maya shaman Don Elijio Panti visited her to learn about plants. This meeting resulted in a ten year apprenticeship with him until his passing in 1996 at the age of 103. Based on her years of living and studying in Mexico and Belize, Dr Arvigo was honored to meet and study with other traditional healers such as Miss Hortence Robinson, a well known herbal midwife who shared her knowledge of caring for women during pregnancy. The techniques she learned from these  traditional healers were given with permission to use and share as long as they were honored and remembered.  Her experiences can be enjoyed in reading  "Sastun, My Apprenticeship with a Mayan Healer."

Arvigo Therapy® is founded on the techniques learned from these traditional healers along with the integration of  anatomy, physiology and naprapathy (study of muscles, ligaments, connective tissues). From 2000 to 2020 the Arvigo Institute was based in New Hampshire collectively working with practitioners and teachers around the world to continue the legacy of Don Elijio. Together, they developed an integrative program of study accessible to all professionals as well as the lay person seeking to improve health and wellness for themselves and clients. 

Since its inception, The Arvigo® Institute has trained healthcare professionals and teachers worldwide. In 2020, The Arvigo Institute was transitioned to a new owner to carry it forward into the future; Samar Ocean Wolf Ciprian of New Zealand who comes from an indigenous background herself.  Due to the transfer of ownership,  Rosita Arvigo was then free to become independent and is now able to enjoy her elder years outside of the Arvigo® Institute.  

Today, the Arvigo® Institute offers traditional healing combined with 21st century science. Continuing in the Institute's commitment to supporting traditional healing, a percentage of each workshop goes directly to support numerous projects. Visit for details on these projects. 

Samar holds in high esteem the elders and healers that have gone before her, recognizing that tithing is an important part of carrying this work forward for future generations.


A third of what the Arvigo® Institute receives for every class is tithing. This tithing will be split four ways, with one fourth going to the Itzamna Society, Don Elijio's descendants who protect the sacred forest at the Elijio Panti National Park in Belize, one fourth going to Dr. Rosita Arvigo in gratitude for her life's work, another fourth going to Maya healers/projects and a final fourth going to support indigenous healers/projects on the land the training is being held or to specific indigenous land care projects for online classes. Our Giving Back page is up on the website now, so you can meet our dear friends from around the world with whom we are in a relationship of reciprocity and respect.
