Rebozo Mexican Healing

Mexican traditional healing

Rebozo is a traditional Mexican shawl, which, besides being used as an item of clothing, is used to provide great comfort by rocking, jiggling and wrapping a woman’s body. It´s often referred to as ¨an extension of loving hands¨.

Rebozo ritual is a ceremony, a nurturing treatment, a unique space that allows not only a deep relaxation, but also processing and profound healing. Like a wave of sisterhood, it is offered by 1 or 2 women to a woman, which can put as back together, especially at times, when we need that support and care of others around us. 

More than just a physical treatment, it´s deeply energetic work that fulfills the function of a Rite of Passage (a ceremony marking an important stage in someone´s life). Something we lack so much in our Western society..

Rebozo Ceremony is not only offered to recent mothers in postpartum. In reality the session is intended for all women wishing to celebrate a passage in life like first menstruation, a desire for motherhood, a marriage, a divorce, a birthday, real or symbolic bereavement, professional or personal renewal, menopause.. or any other stage of life for which a woman feels this call and the need to be supported and surrounded during this transition.

By gently rocking and wrapping you, rebozo ritual is calming you right down and it guides you back into your body, brings the bones back into place, helps your pelvic organs shift and blood flow.  The intension is that you experience a sense of calm and grounding, re-establishing her sense of self

La Cerrada

Postnatal ceremony to honour and nurture the new mother.

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.A safe space is created for this ritual. We start with some time to share where the new mother is at, how she is feeling, looking back on the birth, anything she is willing to share. This ritual includes a healing meditation, massage with essential oils. 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.With the help of a rebozo (Mexican scarf), we 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 7 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.
