“In late 2008, after experiencing years of painful periods, an ultrasound confirmed a very large cyst on my right ovary, a tipped uterus and further debilitating symptoms suggested suspected endometriosis. The doctor believed surgery was my only option. I begged to differ and said I would give myself 6 months to look at less invasive treatments. An appointment with a specialist was scheduled for 6 months down the track and instead I opted to have another ultrasound. Results showed two perfectly healthy ovaries, a uterus in the correct position as well as experiencing pain free periods and ovulation. A holistic approach was taken including The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy® giving the body a chance to heal itself with nourishing and nurturing care. The results speak for themselves!”

Approach to Healing

My overall approach to healing is about softening, allowing and encouraging. Within my clinic, my biggest focus is creating a non judgmental, non critical space and place for people to explore the hidden treasure that can be found when we reconnect with the deep wisdom held in the belly. Each session will help you access and switch on your body’s innate capacity for healing itself. The insights and information that are often gained when we allow the body to be still are not new but memory recall to the buried part of us that already knows exactly what to do. That part of you that will have already led you to click on the link to this site – inner guidance, intuition, little voice in your head however you want to describe it! Everything that has caused you to become unbalanced in the belly, disconnected from the belly’s organs has come from within. Therefore, everything you need to reconnect and become balanced once more is also going to come from within.

I undertook my Arvigo Professional Training and Certification in Belize with Dr. Rosita Arvigo. Immersing myself in the magic and history of the Mayan culture, learning this incredible ancient healing technique, I have enjoyed a period of great transformation in the health of my mind, body and spirit.

Whose side are you on?
The side of your illness, sickness or dis-ease or the side of the organs effected or impacted by conditions and symptoms?

It’s all about championing…





#{insert whatever part needs your TLC right now}

Not giving ‘air time’ to the condition or symptoms effecting these wonderful abdominal organs… that’s where the power lies and its waiting for you to reconnect with it!

Getting down to Belly Business!

Intention setting is a core practice in all areas of my life. It creates the right vibe and energy around what it is you would like to attract more of into your life.  I encourage clients to shift from the focus of expectation whether it be 0f themselves, others, their session with me to an intention for themselves, others, or their session with me. For each and every client I set one simple intention:

yours in Belly Health & Happiness,
