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.
How is a Rebozo used?
I trained to use the Rebozo for many different purposes when I was a Doula (a birth companion).
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.
I’ve eased tired midwives backs whilst they await the arrival of a baby and performed a “closing” ceremony for women needing restoring and centering of their energy.
There are so many wonderful uses of the Rebozo, I use it as an extension of my arms, and all who receive the treatment, marvel at how amazing it feels.
Rebozo for Fertility
I bring the many uses of Rebozo into a Fertility Massage; to gently stretch and rock the head and neck; allowing for a deeper consciousness to be reached, to wrap warmly around the womb centre; to bring energy and focus into her or to shimmy and free the womb.
