Maya Abdominal Massage with Mary Anderson

Individual appointments with Mary Anderson can be scheduled for Thursdays, twice each month. Call now to schedule! 717-290-1517. Appointments are a full hour long and cost the cost is $100. You will be asked to fill out a confidential client history form in advance so that Mary can devote her full attention to your session.

Based on thirty years of training and experience in massage, napropathy, herbology and spiritual healing, Dr. Rosita Arvigo developed the Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Massage.

Arvigo Maya Abdominal Massage Techniques are founded on the ancient Mayan technique, which is an external, non-evasive manipulation that repositions internal organs that have shifted, therefore restricting the flow of blood, lymph, nerve, and chi. The displacement and resulting constriction cause most common female complaints, as well as a host of unrelated ailments. This technique often uncovers emotional issues hidden deep in the abdominal areas of the body.

The work is best known for the correction of the prolapsed, fallen, or tilted uterus. Old adhesions from invasive treatments to the pelvic area, including fibroid tumors, endometriosis, and cesarean delivery are diminished when addressed by this massage. In addition, digestion, urinary and bladder problems can be helped.

The most common symptoms improved by Maya Abdominal massage are:
Displaced or prolapsed uterus and/ or bladder
Painful periods and ovulation
Bladder or yeast infections
Miscarriages, difficult pregnancies
Peri menipause, menopausal symptoms
PMS/ Depression with menstruation
Ovarian cysts
Uterine fibroids
Abnormal uterine bleeding
Enhances pregnancy, aids in labor and delivery
Headaches/ migraines
Digestive disorders
Low energy
Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
Gastro Esophogeal Reflux (GERD)
Crohn's Disease
Chronic Constipation
Low back ache
Chronic indigestion or heartburn
Restricted breathing due to tension

This massage is not performed during menstrual bleeding, within the first 6 weeks following normal vaginal delivery or the first 3 months after a C-section, for a woman using an IUD for birth control, or if cancer is present or suspected anywhere in the pelvis, or the client is undergoing chemotherapy for this condition. It is not performed during the first trimester of pregnancy.

Reiki Shares Moved to Saturdays!

On the fourth Saturday afternoon of each month, Radiance is host to a Reiki Share. Usually facilitated by Marilyn Landis, who teaches the Reiki classes we offer at Radiance, the Reiki shares are open to anyone who has been attuned to at least Reiki Level One. We meet in circle first, share Reiki experiences & discuss Reiki issues, then we break into groups & exchange Reiki with each other. Each person has the opportunity to receive Reiki as well as giving it to others in the group. The Share is from 4:30 until 6pm on the 3rd Sunday of each month.

Reiki Share Lancaster also hosts a yahoo group, which sends reminders of the monthly Shares, and allows us to request distance Reiki (for ourselves or others) from the group between meetings. If you would like to subscribe to the Reiki Share Lancaster group, you can email a request for an invitation to or .
