As a massage therapist and a certified Arvigo practitioner with Arvigo Technique of Maya Abdominal Therapy (ATMAT), I specialize in women’s health working solely with women. Having spent the last year and half studying the Arvigo Technique of Maya Abdominal Therapy, I am very excited to offer this wonderful therapy at Hands On Health. Because of my personal experience of home birth, raising a family, homeschooling, living around the world and meeting women from uniquely different cultures, it has been my passion to help women better understand their bodies and offer natural uninvasive therapies to assist in the healing of the body. Dr. Rosita Arvigo said, “Only women know how women suffer.” This can take many forms from menstrual issues, uterine problems, prolapse, ovarian conditions and fertility challenges. Upon looking closer, we often find that many of the aches and pains women experience are directly related to the lower abdominal area including the tailbone and sacrum. Often, doctors are at a loss for giving relief to the causes of the pains we feel other than prescribing medicine as a bandaid for the symptoms. In my practice, I view my clients holistically. Together with my client, we connect the dots towards finding the root cause of the discomfort which may include any falls or trauma from ones early years up to the present. This ancient Mayan massage addresses those issues and offers hope for women to attain more normalcy of their reproductive functions from onset of menses on through menopause.
At the same time, working with elderly holds a special place in my heart due to the fact that my own mother had dementia. Through massage, I realize how important touch is to the elderly who are usually touch starved. I feel working with the elderly is my way to give back. I am here locally for those families who need my healing touch.
It is my pleasure to be able to share the benefits of all of these special skills with you! Together, we work towards letting the body attain its original normal once again.

I initially visited Hands On Health to assist in a medical or pain condition.
Mid way through my pregnancy I experienced severe sciatica. I tried stretching and multiple visits to a chiropractor with little relief. I scheduled a massage with Denise. She dialed right in to my issue and spent the time communicating with me to really fix the problem. After 48 hours I was back to my old self and remained pain free with her maintenance suggestions and massages. She has been a true blessing during this pregancy.

I came to Hands On Health 5 months ago due to severe chronic pain in my foot and shoulder caused by ongoing pain associated with plantar fasciaitis. Have received medical treatment for a year with little relief. Medicupping has greatly helped my pain and I highly recommend this treatment. I no longer take any pain meds and continue to improve. Denise is very professional and highly skilled. If you too suffer from pain, give this a try – you will be glad you did.

Denise was excellent! Her attitude and knowledge was awesome! Very helpful! Outstanding people skills!
I initially went to a seminar put on by Hands On Health, called Massage for Abdominal & Reproductive Health. After the seminar, I talked with Denise Buslach to explain some of my abdominal symptoms to see if she thought that the massage would be beneficial. I set up an appointment with Denise and she taught me the Arvigo massage method while she performed the massage on me. The benefits were almost instant. After the massage, I was able to get some of the air/gas out of my abdomen. It felt so much better, as I usually felt like a balloon that was about to pop! I have continued doing the massage at home and see Denise every 3 weeks. I continue to see improvement in my abdominal distention.
I also have a large scar on my back that is very tight and itchy. Denise suggested that we try cupping to loosen up the scar and get more blood flow to that area. I have had a few cupping sessions and my scar is much looser and doesn’t itch anymore.
I can’t thank Denise enough for all of the help that she has given me. My quality of life has improved immensely. I look forward to seeing her every 3 weeks and continue to do my home massage, which continues to help with my abdominal distention. I am so happy that I went to that seminar and met Denise and the people at Hands On Health!
