Notes on my Maya Abdominal® experience at eviama life
I met Penny in 2015 from a recommendation of a close friend who suggested she could help me with reproductive health. It was a recommendation I would forever be grateful for and a connection for life. I am a massage therapist; I knew what I was looking for and I appreciate the touch of a genuine healer, a term I do not throw around lightly. This is Penny. She is a healer. And one might add, a knower and seer could be part of her repertoire. Upon our first time meeting I explained to Penny that I was having trouble conceiving, and had been seen by fertility specialists for the past year. She sat and talked with me, looked me in the eye, and listened to what I had to say. We discussed where I was at, and what I was hoping for in the near future.
As she invited me into her treatment room, a wave of calm flushed over my body. Then Penny began, it was beautiful; she spoke to both me and my uterus. It was the most interesting conversation I had had in a long time and I was thankful she drew my attention to something I simply did not recognize. My oversight? - the power of my uterus, oh the wonders she holds!! Penny closed her eyes and I heard a few small words uttered from her lips, when she paused and turned to me and said “C—, are you okay with twins? Because you might be having twins.”
I told Penny that I had mentioned to my husband years ago that it would be us who would end up having twins, but after having all the issues I had, I couldn’t imagine even getting pregnant at this point. While Penny worked on my uterus through the Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy®, she explained that my uterus was leaning, not in her ideal position. Maybe it was lack of positive reinforcement, both spiritually and physically! Funny about this… I mentioned before that I had been seeing fertility doctors. I was faithfully going three times a week for inter-vaginal ultrasound, which allows one to become intimately familiar with the look of her own uterus on screen. That being said, after this visit with Penny I noticed a complete change in the placement of my uterus. But I digress, back to the Arvigo® massage. She worked and worked to move my uterus into a position that would be prime for conceiving and carrying a baby. And by the end of the massage, I felt positive and empowered and well-kneaded around a bit.
I found out I was pregnant with twins in March of 2016. I saw Penny after my first trimester a few times sporadically and then toward the end of my third trimester I would go from every 2 weeks to every 10 days to every 7 days to every 4 days. We mixed the prenatal massage with a Reiki sampler. I wanted to do energy work to prepare my babies and me for their birth. I knew I was having a Caesarean birth (C-section) and I was scared and excited. Penny helped me to work though the emotions and prepared in a way that is very hard to put into words. During our time together Penny offered [Dr. Hauschka] Blackthorn Body Oil to put on my belly, to improve elasticity and curb itchiness. I have NO stretch marks today. I know some of it is hereditary but I am a firm believer that of the work I did with Penny, I had a fabulous and long pregnancy. I carried my girls until the designated due date for the C-section which was 38 weeks and 4 days. I had a fabulous birth and fabulous recovery. I made good use of eviama’s special essential oil blends - one was called “Calm + Secure” - perfect for me at this juncture. I have visited Penny since my girls were born, and although it may not be as much as I should be doing for myself, it is the most magical connection each and every time.
eviama is a beautiful and enchanting spa, overlooking the city tucked away, remote and quiet. Everyone that works there is a pleasure to talk with, and I always feel at home when I am there.
