Holistic Abdominal Relief Therapy

A unique synthesis of Maya Abdominal Therapy with Techniques from the Aztec, Nahuatl and Mixteca cultures.  The H.A.R.T. Method offers deeply supportive, profound, elegant treatments and classes which may aid in alleviation of reproductive, urinary, digestive and back pain issues for Women and Men.

It all starts with the Holistic Abdominal Relief Therapy, Kimberly first learned this amazing healing method from the Maya tradition. Often known as Maya Abdominal Therapy, this technique traditionally helps reproductive health, fertility, digestive issues, urinary challenges, back pain and many other concerns. After studying for well over a decade years in the Maya Medicine tradition with many teachers (Maestros), Kimberly then began learning with Elders of the Nahuatl, Aztec, Mixteca, Ancient European and Eastern Traditions, adding to her knowledge of the Abdominal Therapies with them as well as additional traditional healing methods.

Kimberly also developed special techniques in response to requests and health challenges from clients and midwives in the United States and Minnesota area. After working with clients successfully applying this unified Method for many years, Kimberly’s teacher in the Nahuatl & Aztec Traditions and Curanderismo, Rita Navarrete Perez, insistent that she teach what she has learned and developed. Rita stated that the medicine is needed and must be spread to help the people. Thus, Kimberly solidified and established the unique H.A.R.T. Method of Holistic Abdominal Relief Therapy, which includes traditional healing techniques from the Maya, Aztec, Nahuatl, and Mixteca as well as conventional modalities.
