Read more about Post Natal Massage
Around the world, caring for mothers after childbirth has traditionally been a matter of great importance. In many societies the traditions and skills of helping postnatal mothers is still handed down through the generations. Family and community work together to celebrate the birth and care for the mother so that she can relax, recover her strengthen and bond with her baby.
Globally, all these postnatal traditions have surprisingly many basic practices in common: all important ways of enriching the postnatal experience for the mother in order to help her recovery. The four main common practices are rest, massage, a healthy diet and social support. In many parts of Asia, women have long prebooked sessions with an Indonesian massage therapist for postnatal massage. The treatment is a traditional one which has been handed down over several generations. It involves the use of a massage oil applied to the stomach and a tummy wrap (bengkung), essentially a cotton cloth of several meters’ length. The bengkung is used to wrap the body so as to push up the uterus, clearing water retention, wind and spasms. This shrinks the tummy and helps to reduce weight. A postnatal woman will benefit from any massage, especially from a neck, shoulder and back massage. Any areas of physical stress noted by the maternity carers will respond to touch and massage, reassuring, rebalancing and reaffirming the physical world as a new mother. This is a great way to relax the new mother and, as we all know, a relaxed mother helps a baby relax.
