Closing the Bones – A Traditional Postpartum Recovery Plan.
It takes time and space to reflect on your role as a Mother. Postnatally your body senses the intense need for rest and recuperation with every CELL you are made of. No matter how many times you’ve been through this before, each new pregnancy, birth and child brings some fresh insight or intangible learning that takes time to settle.
The Traditional Postpartum approach includes a gentle drainage massage of your arms and legs followed by a session using cloths to bring your bones back into alignment and leave you with the sense of having been healthily embraced and supported.
A home hammam with traditional Morccan clay and herbs is also available to those wanting full postpartum care. This followed by the traditional massage is recommended on days 2, 4, 6. Then at 2 weeks and 6 weeks as a minimum recovery schedule.
40 Day Celebrations are available on request – organised to your specification and cultural comfort.
If you’d like to find out more about how this approach can work to help put you back together and honour all the parts of you, no matter what you’ve been through, then book a time to chat:Book Now!
Please note as a practicing Muslim I offer this olive oil and closing-with-cloths massage with prayerful silence and full respect for the religious values of the postnatal mother. I chose to train in the Moroccan method as the chain of teaching comes through women of monotheistic faith rather than the Shaman tradition of the Mexican way. Don’t hesitate to ask if you have any faith specific questions about the nature of this practice.
