Closing the Bones
What is it?
A Closing the Bones treatment supports your recovery after childbirth, no matter how long ago that was. It involves the use of a shawl to rock and articulate your hips, followed by an abdominal and pelvic massage with a warming oil and is finished by tightly wrapping your hips with the shawl. Beyond the physical aspect of Closing the Bones, there is a spiritual aspect to the treatment. It provides a safe space for you to feel nurtured and release any emotions associated with birth and motherhood.
What to expect
We’ll initially have a chat about the treatment, your childbirth experience and what you’re hoping to get from the massage. I'll have prepared a futon on the floor with one or more shawls on top (we often use a traditional Mexican shawl called a rebozo). Depending on your preferences, I may also use relaxing music and scents and dim the lighting to make the space cosy. You then lie on your back on the futon. First I'll rock your hips for a while using a rebozo. I then massage your abdomen and hips, using a warming oil and using strokes designed to loosen and relax you. I then rock your pelvis some more with the rebozo Finally, I'll wrap your hips, or wrap you from your head to toe with several shawls and cover you with a blanket to keep you warm. When it’s finished, I'll leave you to relax for a bit and go and prepare you a drink. There’s a chance to chat about the experience for a while afterwards.
