Tara uses Maya Abdominal Massage as a therapeutic treatment that has been known and practiced by healers for thousands of years but forgotten in this century. So often, modern medicine tends to focus on relieving symptoms, rather than the cause of the disease. Women and men suffer needlessly from a barrage of physical complaints that can easily be corrected by returning the uterus/prostate to its proper position and function using these massage techniques.

“Viscera” relates to the internal organs, such as the liver, kidneys and intestines. Visceral Manipulation is a gentle manual therapy that aids your body’s ability to release restrictions and unhealthy compensations that cause pain/dysfunction. VM does not focus solely on the site but evaluates the entire body to find the source of the problem. The VM therapist feels for altered or decreased motion within the viscera, other restrictive patterns throughout the body and then applies VM techniques, thereby re-establishing the body’s ability to adapt and restore itself to health.
