This is a gentle, effective and deeply nurturing treatment to nourish, support and comfort women and birthing people after pregnancy and birth. Beneficial whether you have recently given birth or it’s been many years since you were pregnant. Inspired by a traditional Ecuadoran postnatal massage called closing the bones – and with much gratitude to the indigenous teachers who have shared their knowledge – the Postnatal Recovery Massage (PRM) is performed on a massage table and involves using a rebozo shawl (pictured) to rock and bind the mother’s body, together with an extensive massage of the abdomen, hips, waist, ribs, chest and arms. After the massage you will be wrapped in rebozos to help ‘close your bones’.
You can choose how much of your body you would like to be wrapped in rebozos – it can be just your pelvis; your head, pelvis and feet or full wrapping of head, shoulders, ribs, pelvis, knees and feet. I will then cover you snugly in blankets so you feel really held and nurtured and here you can rest deeply. At this part of the session I can read a poem or just hold the space while you integrate the treatment. Postnatal Recovery Massage is designed to help realign and balance as well as help you return to your center, both physically and energetically.
I offer this as a full spectrum postnatal treatment and it can be very healing and comforting after a loss during pregnancy or after birth. If you would like to receive this treatment after a loss please send me a message.

“Had an amazing postnatal recovery massage with Rosa today. Absolute bliss. Abdominal massage feels fantastic after pregnancy and being wrapped and held in rebozos feels so very grounding. Rosa is brilliant, I felt totally calm, relaxed, safe and cosy in her therapy space.”
‘Closing the Bones’ – a deeply relaxing, therapeutic and non-invasive process using Rebozos (a traditional Mexican shawl) wrapped around the head, shoulders, pelvis, legs and feet. Traditionally performed by Mexican midwives and so called because it helps ‘close’ the mothers bones and bring her ’back to herself’ after being so open during pregnancy and birth.
This treatment can be enjoyed on it’s own or as part of a postnatal Mizan treatment, as well as being part of the Postnatal Recovery Massage.
