Abdominal Therapy for Professionals (part 1)

This wonderful class teaches you not only the vital knowledge and tools to perform with confidence your own home care massage treatment known as YAM (Your Abdominal Massage) but also how to share and provide anterior Abdominal Therapy with your clients.
The focus of this class is on the anterior portion of Abdominal Therapy, based on the work of Dr Rosita Arvigo. While Abdominal Therapy for the anterior body is an effective stand-alone treatment, we suggest you complete Abdominal Therapy for Professionals Part 2 which completes the Abdominal Therapy Protocol, and allows both you and your client a greater insight and opportunity for whole-body wellness.

The training consists of:

  • Three self paced home study modules provided on the Abdominal Therapy Collective’s interactive website.
  • A four day bodywork intensive, where further practical applications will be taught, learned and shared with other students.

Abdominal Therapy offers a uniquely integrative approach to abdominal and pelvic health. You’ll leave this class fully qualified and able to offer your clients a comprehensive anterior Abdominal Therapy treatment. This class will prepare you to work with men and women, children and adults. You’ll become part of a thriving, supportive, global, community of Abdominal Therapy professionals via The Abdominal Therapy Collective (ATC).

On completion of this class, you will receive:

  • Certificate of attendance
  • Access to our extensive educational resources
  • Ongoing professional support
  • Access to our clinical advisory board
  • Access to advanced professional training
  • One year’s Practitioner Membership with the Abdominal Therapy Collective (ATC). This gives you an active profile on the ATC website and access to our members portal which has a rich range of resources to use with your clients and further your own education, including access to videos of Rosita Arvigo performing the massage techniques and members events throughout the year.

Amanda Porter

I have trained and worked closely with Dr Rosita Arvigo, DN since 2006. This work changed my life and I now witness how it supports clients on their own healing journey. Abdominal Therapy is my passion, sharing the wealth of information gathered over many years is a privilege.

I have been an abdominal therapist for over 16 years, working with clients as young as 6 weeks to the grand age of 90. I have been an educator in Abdominal Therapy for the past 5 years and have travelled the world sharing this work. I love to create a safe space where each student can learn at a pace and in a way that suits them.

I will provide you with a fun, thoughtful learning environment, there may be dancing, chocolate is considered an essential learning tool and at the end of the class, you will be ready to meet your clients where they are and empower them on their own healing journey.I look forward to welcoming you into the class and am happy to arrange a call if you have any questions or concerns.
