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.
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 creates a lasting memory for them, they’ll fall in love with Rebozo!
Rebozo for Fertility
The Rebozo massage is deeply relaxing which is one of the reasons it’s so ideal for fertility.
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!
