The creator of ATMAT is Dr. Rosita Arvigo. A naprapath and herbalist, Rosita moved to Belize with her family in the 1980s to homestead in the jungle near the Guatemalan border. During this time, she became the student of the renown Mayan Shaman Don Elijio Panti and student to the expertly skilled local Belizean midwife and herbalist Hortence Robinson. Combining the knowledge of traditional medicine gained from her mentors with her knowledge of western anatomy and physiology, Rosita has created a modality that connects the profound healing power of traditional medicine with the modern world.
ATMAT has become known for its unique emphasis on assessing and recentering the uterus. This focus was passed down from Don Elijio who believed that a woman's life would only be in balance if her uterus was in balance physically. While the Arvigo Technique has become known for its ability to support fertility and reproductive health in women, it is also proven to be beneficial for digestive, urinary, reproductive, and emotional health of all genders.
