H.A.R.T. Method (Holistic Abdominal Relief Therapy) is based on the traditional Maya abdominal therapy. It is excellent for treating reproductive, digestive, and menstrual issues as well as treating low back, hip and pelvic pain. It is grounded in knowledge shared ,with permission, by elders of Mayan, Aztec, Mixteca, and Nahuatl lineages as well as techniques developed by Kimberly Hart in her many years of study and practice with the elders and her own experience working in this field.
