The female pelvis is a powerhouse of energy transformation-the very throne of creation through which universal creative energy patterns course and flow. This depends on balance within the system.           Dr. Rosita Arvigo D.N.


The uterus has a very specific place to reside within the pelvis. This anatomical position allows for maximum circulation of nutrient rich, oxygenated arterial blood, nerve supply from the spinal column, exiting venous blood and lymphatic drainage that carries away wastes.


The uterus is suspended in the pelvic cavity by ligaments and connective tissue and is supported by the pelvic floor muscles. In the non-pregnant state the uterus is about 3 inches long, 2 inches wide and 1 inch think. It weighs about 4 ounces; during menses it weighs 8 ounces and at the end of pregnancy the uterus, placenta and amniotic fluid weighs about 6 pounds. In addition to this is the weight of the baby-approximately 7-9 pounds!). The round ligament (one of the uterine supporting ligaments) has stretched to 18 inches, which is 5 times its normal length.  Isn’t it amazing what this organ can do and the range of changes it undergoes?


The uterus can shift out of its normal anatomical position from a wide variety of causes. This displacement can create abnormal pressure in the area that is affected resulting in restriction to the flow of arteries, veins, lymph, nerve and Chi (energy). This can also impact hormone levels and delivery. It is this restriction that is the cause of most of our female ailments, ranging from irregular periods to infertility to cancer of the reproductive organs. About 90% of all women will have a displaced uterus at some point in their lifetime.


A normal menses (period) should result in no more than 30 minutes of MILD discomfort. It should be free from clots and dark blood at the beginning or at the end of your menses. It should also be free from PMS, depression, headaches, migraines and dizziness. These are the symptoms we have been taught to accept as normal and expect to have on a regular, monthly basis. If your menses is not normal as described-it is likely that your uterus is out of place.


Thankfully, the uterus and surrounding ligaments and fascia respond very well to the manipulation of the Maya Abdominal Therapy and are gently eased back into proper position. This allows a return to the much-needed balance for optimum healing and health. The damage and displacement are ultimately reversed and the symptoms abated.


The therapy is suitable and highly recommended for young girls following any accident to the sacrum to ensure they are free from PMS, painful periods, fertility issues and many more unpleasant symptoms.


There are at least 38 symptoms of a displaced uterus that can be corrected by these wonderfully simple techniques along with self-care treatment, diet and lifestyle changes.


See “Indications for treatment” on the Maya Abdominal Therapy page for many of the symptoms of a displaced uterus.
