Increase your fertility with Aroha.

Usually women suffering from infertility are directed to medical intervention; IVF and hormone injections. While these procedures do work for some, they can be extremely costly, invasive and can be painful. When combined with a holistic approach that the Arvigo and fertility therapies at Aroha bring, the results can be swift and positive.

These procedures are used to treat the symptoms of infertility. Aroha focuses on bringing homeostasis and hemodynamics to the reproductive and digestive systems and works on the root cause of the symptoms.

The Aroha Fertility program combines unique and powerful ancient spiritual philosophies, holistic methodology and Arvigo Maya abdominal massage to assist in increasing your chances of conceiving naturally.

Arvigo Maya abdominal massage therapies allow the 5 systems of flow within the body to swiftly unblock and clear the way both physically and mentally, to support a more balanced and fertile you.

Aroha fertility therapies are designed specifically to not only to increase the flow of blood to the uterus, ovaries and fallopian tubes, but also to increase a sense of well being, whilst strengthening the immune system, stimulation and balance of the production of hormones, along with the improved health of the lymphatic system. The result of putting the above into practice is a dramatically increased chance of conceiving a baby!

Arvigo Maya Abdominal Massage for pregnancy and post-partum healing is a non-invasive, external, massage technique. It guides internal abdominal organs into their proper position for optimum health and well being. It improves organ function by releasing physical and emotional congestion from the abdomen, and is extremely effective.

Physically, this ceremony guides her bones back into place, supports her pelvic organs shift, supports her uterus to shrink back down, and stimulates blood flow.  Women who are honoured in this way experience a sense of calm and grounding, re-establishing her sense of self.

Vaginal Steams (Bajos, in Spanish) have a long history of use by traditional healers in various parts of the world, especially in Central America. Their popularity has been steadily growing in the West, and for good reason – vaginal steams are very beneficial for a wide variety of conditions, from painful menstrual cramps to infertility to nourishment of the area. They can help the uterus empty itself more completely, dislodging old tissue and blood that may have been there for months or even years.

Rosanna from Aroha is a miracle worker. I've had a number of Arvigo and Steam treatments from her leading up to fertility treatment which resulted in a pregnancy. I have no doubt that the work I did with Rosanna prepared my womb for the implantation of the embryo. I also found the treatment incredibly relaxing and it relieved stress in a way that I had not experienced before. In the past my stomach had always felt quite tight and I had lots of digestion issues. The self-care Rosanna taught me transformed my stomach into a soft stress free zone in a very short amount of time. I felt connected to my whole body and felt more alive. Once I have my baby I will be going straight back to Rosanna for after birth care. I believe that every woman would benefit from this treatment no matter what your circumstances are. I could not recommend this treatment with Rosanna more highly.'
