About Alex


Holistic Health Practitioner / Maya Traditional Healing

Alex Jackson is a Holistic Health Practitioner specialized in Maya Traditional Healing. For the last decade, Alex’s primary focus in his practice has been on traditional ways to heal the body and spirit through the abdomen. Proper balance in the core can resolve many physical ailments and emotional traumas. Alex sees the abdomen as the doorway to achieve this balance or “Centered Spirit.” Traditional Medicine has been vital to his work over the years and has provided the missing link in healthcare for his patients. Alex’s passion is to bring this ancient healing wisdom to our modern world.

Alex is trained as a licensed massage therapist and Certified as a Practitioner and Self-Care Instructor in the Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy. His training also includes: CranioSacral Therapy, Reiki, Nutrition, Prenatal Massage, Chi Nei Tsang, Cupping Therapy, Medicinal Plants, and Holistic Counseling. Alex’s journey in Maya Traditional Healing has taken him to Belize, Guatemala and Mexico, where respected Traditional Healers taught him the simple but effective power of natural medicine.  He is grateful to have spent many years with Dr. Rosita Arvigo of Belize. Dr. Arvigo taught him Maya Spiritual Healing and Maya Abdominal Therapy that she learned from her apprenticeship with h´men Don Elijio Panti. While in Mexico he met another of his teachers, Traditional Healer Rita Navarrete Perez, she showed him the importance of the Temazcal for healing and cleansing the body.

He is founder and owner of Centered Spirit, LLC, a clinic specialized in Abdominal Health, Therapeutic Massage and Traditional Healing located in Kansas City, Missouri.
