At Nest, our focus is on women’s health, fertility and pregnancy. We help you overcome fertility obstacles, gynecological issues, emotional stress and other conditions that may be affecting your life and overall wellbeing. In addition, we are here to support you throughout your pregnancy. We encourage open, thorough communication in a warm and inviting treatment environment, and give you the time and attention needed to express your concerns. Our approach is to combine the wisdom of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) with a detailed understanding of western medicine to provide a comprehensive approach to your care. Our intention is to support your overall wellness whether it’s in an effort to manifest an outcome, to heal, or both at the same time. We believe that your body, mind and spirit working together is your greatest strength. You have everything you need. We just give you a boost of support to make things work the way nature intended.

Although acupuncture is our main protocol, we feel that other aspects of TCM are just as important. Some adjunct therapies you might experience during your treatment at Nest include herbal supplements, nutritional support, lifestyle modifications, as well as other TCM modalities (such as moxibustion, cupping, massage, and Qi Gong).

The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy™ are founded on the ancient Mayan technique of abdominal massage which is an external non invasive manipulation that repositions internal organs that have shifted, thereby restricting the flow of blood, lymph, nerve and chi.This modality incorporates a holistic approach to health care which includes massage, anatomy and physiology, herbal medicine, nutrition, and emotional and spiritual healing.

Many physical and emotional symptoms that effect women can be addressed and prevented with these simple, noninvasive massage techniques. When reproductive organs shift, they can constrict normal flow of blood and lymph, and disrupt nerve connections. Just a few extra ounces sitting on blood and lymph vessels can cause havoc throughout the different systems in the body. By shifting the uterus back into place, homeostasis, or the natural balance of the body, is restored in the pelvic area and the surrounding organs. Toxins are flushed and nutrients that help to tone tissue and balance hormones are restored to normal order. This is essential for healthy reproductive functioning, such as painless menses, healthy pregnancy, effective labor and birth.
