Mother honouring abdominal massage

Closing the bones is an abdominal massage that gently brings the body, mind and soul back together.  Therefore sealing what was opened during the birthing process.

Birth at times can be quite profound which can expose you to feelings or sensations of being open, vulnerable or exhausted.  This abdominal massage can help to nurture and acknowledge the new role you are embarking on.

Traditionally many cultures focus on rest, nurturing and healing in the first 30 days after birth. This style of abdominal massage aids this. This style I offer originates from Ecuador and is repeated as often as the mother needs. This massage is not limited to those who have recently given birth and can be equally beneficial for women who birthed many years ago.

Closing the hips & the cycle of pregnancy

This abdominal massage begins with gentle rocking of the hips.  The rocking is carried out with a rebozo (shawl) placed like a hammock under your hips.  A blend of essential oils are used to compliment your abdomen massage.  After the abdominal massage is completed you are wrapped with rebozos around your hips and body, forming a cacoon around you.


The intension for this abdominal massage can be unique for you.  This closing ceremony has called to women who have birthed, experienced birth trama, loss or grief or any of lifes transitions.  Therefore, this ritual is nuturing when compassion is needed.  I invite you all to connect with me.

‘I just can't thank you enough, Rebecca. I obviously was sent your way for a reason, which I wasn't entirely sure why initially, but now I know. The combination of the Birth Story Listening Session followed by Closing of Bones was so beautiful and helpful in my healing after a traumatic birth experience. I already feel lighter and calmer within myself and heading towards my sense of peace. Thank you’
