Genevieve Siegel, Holistic Health Practitioner, Holistic Fertility Practitioner, Licensed Massage Practitioner, Certified Practitioner in the Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy™, and Certified Community Educator.
Born and raised in California, Genevieve is a first generation Dutch-Indonesian and second-generation body-worker. A graduate of the School of Healing Arts in Pacific Beach, Genevieve has more than 1000 class hours in holistic health and is a nationally certified massage practitioner. Genevieve thoroughly enjoys facilitating the healing of others and believes in the importance of balancing the mind, body and spirit.
Genevieve’s journey to becoming a massage practitioner began in 1996 when she was diagnosed with endometriosis and had a large cyst on her right ovary. After laparoscopy and years of taking a variety of hormones, from the pill to Lupron Depot, then Clomid to try to conceive, nothing was working. The side-effects of so many medications had become debilitating. Frustrated with the whole process, Genevieve stopped taking all medications. Just when she thought life would be back on track, she started contending with severe panic attacks.
After being prescribed and reluctantly taking various medications, this time for anxiety, once again, Genevieve decided to make a life change. Taking a break from her 13-year career in the corporate accounting industry, she began taking massage classes. While seeking her own healing, Genevieve found her new passion and a new profession!
After psychotherapy, massage, spiritual practices, bioenergetics counseling, acupuncture, and a complete change in her diet, Genevieve was panic attack free, medication free and anxiety/depression free, with no noticeable signs of cysts. However, still painful menses and severe PMS persisted and fertility issues were a concern. She soon discovered that Arvigo Technique of Maya Abdominal Therapy™ (ATMAT) was the piece that was missing in her healing. Genevieve began taking Personal Care and Professional Training courses where she experienced huge emotional releases, spiritual transformations and physical healing.
Through her own experiences, Genevieve realized that many women as well as men can benefit from holistic healing therapy and Maya Abdominal Therapy and that she was called to do this work.
