"Closing of the Bones" is a postpartum healing ceremony, which was created to nurture the mother after her passage through giving birth, and her journey into motherhood.  It is a celebration, a setting of sacred space, and a way to nurture yourself.

What is the origin of ‘Closing of the Bones’?
A Closing of the Bones is inspired by a  Mexican tradition where the postpartum mother is anointed, massaged and wrapped in the Mayan tradition. There is a calling of her spirit back to herself as she has been a portal for carrying new life, and has walked the threshold between worlds. A transformation has also begun as the mother embraces new aspects of herself through this rite of passage into new stages of motherhood. Our intention is to provide a space as a nurturing and supportive environment in which healing can take place on these many levels.

What types of healing modalities are used?
The ceremony begins in welcoming the mother and family. She is kept warm and then treated with a specific pelvic and body balancing treatment, where she will be nurtured by healing hands. A variety of healing modalities may be used involving arvigo abdominal massage, myofascial release massage, reiki, aromatherapy, and meditation.

There will be a ‘closing’ done by gently wrapping the cranium, the midsection and the pelvic area, helping to facilitate shrinkage of the uterus guide the bones back to their original positioning.  Once complete, she is allowed to lie quietly and integrate her experience. 

This process literally helps "close" a Mother's body, which "opens" in so many ways, both in preparation for, and during birth itself. 
The ritual can also help "close" a new Mother energetically, as both pregnancy, and particularly the intense process of labor and birth, can be very vulnerable times for a woman, psychologically and psychically.
