Postnatal Massage Cairns

Closing the Bones / postnatal massage  is a way to support a woman’s recovery after childbirth; a way to celebrate the amazing abilities of her body; and a way to create a moment of stillness, of meditative peace and reflection in the rollercoaster of emotions of new motherhood. It is a postnatal ritual. It is a ceremony.

What is Closing The Bones Postnatal Abdominal Massage? What are the benefits? What does it entail?

The closing the bones treatment involves a complex abdominal and pelvic girdle massage using a warming oil.

After carrying, laboring and birthing a baby (or multiple babies) a woman’s body can remain open and depleted of energy afterwards. Closing the Bones is a gentle,

postpartum massage to close the body, warm the mother and encourage a new flow of energy to be released.

Please phone Tanya Galvin on 0408 054 538 to discuss your postnatal massage.

In many cultures, there is a confinement period after birth, when the new mother is looked after and nourished and helped to heal – post natal massage is part of that.  It is a really great way to self care after birth.  If we did MRI scans of pregnant women we would see how the hips open during the pregnancy, becoming wider and wider, and that after birth it is paramount to help close them back to their normal width, otherwise mothers suffer from pelvic instability.

In traditional cultures, the 40 days of the postnatal period represent a sacred time.  In Ecudor, women are given this massage within hours of the birth and receive it again at least 5 or 6 times during the first 40 days postpartum.  The massage stimulates blood flow which in turn: cleans, renews, moves fluid, moves hormones, stimulates the immune system, and helps tone muscles and tissues.  According to Rocio, our hips also support the weight of the spine and head and they are therefore the seat of unresloved emotions and trauma, which can be felt upon the hips as knots that need to be released during the massage.

Post natal massage can be thought of as a remedial massage combined with a relaxation massage!
