Postnatal massage is an amazingly effective and holistic approach for the many adjustments to motherhood.
The golden month or 40 days postpartum is a huge transition period and massage can help you navigate the physical and emotional strains during this time.
Postnatal massage promotes relaxation, circulation and relieves anxiety, exhaustion, tension & postpartum blues. I provide a safe healing space for a new Mama to be nurtured & supported after she has brought new life into the world.
Pregnancy and Birth can leave the body open physically, mentally and spiritually. Once baby is born it can require closing or sealing for a new mama to properly heal, recover and arrive back in her own body.
This beautiful work involves a postnatal aromatherapy massage using personally blended oils to meet your needs, then a wrapping ceremony using rebozos (a Mexican shawl) to rock and bind mama’s hips.
This ritual is called closing the bones and it is an old tradition from the indigenous people of Ecuador.
Mothers used to receive it 5 or 6 times during the first 40 days after the birth. It is a truly magical experience.
This massage will help with hormone regulation, swelling, sleep issues and milk production. It can also speed up the healing process and assist with C-section recovery.
Residual body aches from pregnancy are normal. Adding breastfeeding and childcare can intensify arm, shoulder and back pain, I provide a nurturing space to help you transition into motherhood while easing the aches and pains of the last nine months.
This massage is not only suitable for new mamas but those who birthed many years ago.
Note; This includes a 10 minute consultation to ensure your receive a tailored experience. A relaxing foot soak is provided during your consultation.
