What does Mayan abdominal massage do?
Mayan Abdominal Massage, or MAM, is an ancient technique for bodywork that is used to reposition internal organs in the abdomen that have shifted and is widely practiced by Curanderos, healers, and midwives in Belize, Guatemala, and Mexico. MAM has many physical and mental benefits. These include increased blood circulation and nutrient supply to the pelvic region, improved muscle relaxation and reduced cramps due to PMS, and a balanced and healthier uterus. Additionally, MAM can support many reproductive, digestive, and structural issues, such as infertility, endometriosis, GERD, IBS, chronic fatigue, and more. This type of massage is gentle and noninvasive, and is widely acclaimed for its soothing and healing effects.
What Is MAM?
MAM, or Mayan Abdominal Massage, is a type of massage that is external and noninvasive. It is designed to address the problems caused by a displaced uterus and to correct it by manipulating the abdominal area. The uterus is held in place with ligaments, and when it shifts out of place, it can block the circulation of blood to the uterus, ovaries, bladder, and bowel. Traditional Mayan healers, or Don Elijo Panti, believe that when a woman’s uterus is unbalanced, her whole body is, too. MAM is designed to provide relief for many digestive, reproductive, and structural issues.
Benefits of MAM
MAM, or Mayan Abdominal Massage, offers a variety of benefits to those who practice it.

Additionally, it can help increase fertility, improve menstrual conditions, reduce adhesions and scarring, and lessen constipation.
How Is MAM Performed?
MAM, or Mayan Abdominal Massage, is performed by gently, but firmly, massaging the abdominal area in a circular motion. This motion should be repeated 10 times to stimulate the nerves that control bowel function. After that, pressure should be applied to the lower right of the abdomen in a circle. This should then be continued across and up the body. Different variations of this massage may also be used to treat any area of the abdominal region, or to focus on specific issues.
