Closing of Bones Ceremony
The closing of the bones ritual and massage I practice is from Ecuador.
In Ecuador, women are given this massage within hours of the birth and receive it again at least 5 or 6 times during the first 40 days postpartum. The massage stimulates blood flow which in turn; cleans, renews, moves fluids (may help with milk supply/lochia), moving hormones, immune system, toning muscles, and tissue. In traditional cultures, the 41 days of the postnatal period represent a sacred time. In this time the woman will have the closing massage at least five times, the first being 6 hours after birth, this begins to put the bladder and uterus back into place.
