What is a Rebozo Massage?DSC_7548

Blissful, Nurturing, Releasing, Fun, Relaxing, Connecting, Nourishing, Shimmying, Restoring, Flowing, Grounding, Opening…

These are a selection of the words that have been used by my clients and students to describe the Rebozo techniques that I use.

What exactly is Rebozo & where does it come from?

The Rebozo is a traditional shawl woven and used by Mexican women. Traditional Mexican midwives use the Rebozo to do the manteada, a rocking massage technique, through pregnancy and birth.

I trained to use the Rebozo for many different purposes when I was a Doula (a birth companion). My love of bodywork and experimenting with how combining other bodywork styles & techniques work together, led me to developing many of the Rebozo techniques that I teach as part of Fertility Massage or as a one day Rebozo workshop.
The beautiful thing about Rebozo massage is it’s so versatile. It can be used in so many different ways – I use it as an extension of my arms, and women just find themselves letting go and releasing into the softness of the fabric and drifting to the rhythm of the Rebozo.

Rebozo for Fertility

The Rebozo massage is deeply relaxing which is one of the reasons it’s so ideal for fertility.

It balances and relaxes the pelvis, lower back, womb and ligaments; allowing more room for the womb to settle into her rightful place.
Wrapping the womb, centres the woman and brings her energy into her sacral chakra; allowing her to feel held, safe and nurtured.

Pregnancy

Rebozo for Pregnancy & Labour

I’ve used the Rebozo to help a labouring mumma move through contractions, play “tug of love” to help bring the placenta out or to ease the pressure off her back in the latter months of pregnancy and during labour. There are also specific techniques that can assist in helping a baby into the optimal foetal position. Post-Partum, a “closing” ceremony can be performed to restore and centre  a new mumma’s energy. This feels very nourishing and women are often left speechless at the simplicity but beauty of the ceremony. It’s not only the mumma that benefits, I’ve eased tired midwives backs whilst they await the arrival of a baby too!

Rebozo for Massagepregnancy 6

Your whole body can be shimmied, rocked, wrapped and held as it releases tension and you’re left feeling lighter and freer! Clients will feel themselves drifting into a state of bliss and will create a lasting memory for them, they’ll fall in love with Rebozo and be coming back for more!
