Rebozo closing ritual
The Closing of the Bones is a way to honour and celebrate a new mother. This ritual acknowledges the huge transformation she has undergone in pregnancy and childbirth. It makes space for the enormous shift that she has experienced physically, mentally and emotionally.
Physically, it guides her back into her own body, brings the bones back into place, helps her pelvic organs shift and blood flow. Women who are honoured in this way experience a sense of calm and grounding, re-establishing her sense of self.
A safe space is created for this ritual, in a warm & quiet room. We start with some time to share where the new mother is at, how she is feeling, looking back on the birth, anything that needs to be heard.
This ritual includes a healing meditation, a 4-hand massage with essential oils of head, arms, legs & feet. We also massage the belly, lovingly taking care of this area where a baby grew.
After the massage we offer a foot bath with flowers and herbs as well as through inhalation.
With the help of a rebozo (Mexican scarf), we then gently rock the whole body which has a soothing, deeply relaxing effect.
For the last part of the ritual, the new mother is tightly wrapped using 6 rebozos. We wrap and honour different parts of her body—feet, knees, pelvis, waist, shoulders, head. The mother is then left to rest as we hold space for her. After a short closing this beautiful ritual is complete.
