Closing of the bones Ceremony

I believe every woman needs this at some point in her life. 

When can you have it ? 

  • After Birth of Baby 
  • Grief 
  • Start of period 
  • To honouring cycle of a woman’s life 
  • Painful periods 
  • Years after having given birth
  • Peri / Menopause 
  • End of body shaming 
  • After a stillbirth, pregnancy loss or abortion
  • After a hysterectomy 
  • Divorce / End of friendships 

In this beautiful offering I am there for the woman, to hold space, to nurture, to serve. A Closing of the bones ceremony is such a moving experience. The mother has opened up every part of herself for her baby, she has also been born into her new role & next stage of her life. 
The ceremony is time out for the new mother, where she can reconnect with herself and full


Immerse herself into this emotional, spiritual journey. We honour the new mother with closing of the bones as if to close the chapter of pregnancy and transition into this new phase of life. Birthing a new life is a spiral journey which allows the body to open fully, to expand physically and spiritually. The rebozo ceremony is closure to that journey. The new mother is nurtured with restorative reflection, a time of silence and peace. 

‘On a purely physical level, the sifting of the hips with the Rebozo and the subsequent oil massage of the abdominal area help to loosen the lower vertebrae (which have been compressed during pregnancy) and release tension and stagnant energy that has built up during pregnancy in the hip area. The technique also offers an effective way to help mobilize the pubic bone back into the correct position whilst stimulating shrinkage of the uterus and helping to move the uterus and bladder back into their pre-pregnant place. All this can prevent serious hip problems in older age.  The massage also stimulates the blood circulation which in turn cleans, renews and moves fluids (and may greatly help with milk supply and lochia), moves hormones, renews the immune system, tones the muscles and renews the tissues.’

When can a closing ceremony take place?.

  • At the end of the traditional 40 days of postpartum
    to mark the end of a breastfeeding journey (it can be the most powerfully nurturing ceremony to ‘reclaim’ your body in some ways as yours again)
  • To honour milestones such a baby turning 1 year old in celebration of all the work and love the mother has given unconditionally
  • Years or decades after having given birth (with the same effects)
  • After a stillbirth, pregnancy loss or abortion
  • After a hysterectomy
  • In any situation where closure is required by any person!
