"Bayu" - Bengkung belly binding

This includes a session of belly binding, the explanations on how to wrap yourself in the fabric, as well as 3 weeks of rent.

Vaginal birth: You can start as soon as 2 to 4 days after birth.

C-section birth: You must wait from 2 to 4 weeks (as soon as the stitches are dry) to start the treatment.


It is recommended to wear the wrap 10-12 hours a day (as long as it feels comfortable) for a minimum of 3 weeks.
 

Each additional week of the bengkung wrap rent will be charged 10€.

 

Bengkung binding is a traditional belly binding therapy from Malaysia. A long strip of muslin or cotton cloth is tied around the abdomen and hips during postnatal recovery.

 

Proven benefits:

  • Reduces water retention

  • Provides firm control of belly soft skin

  • Provides back posture support during breastfeeding

  • Firms up the abdominal muscles and tissues

  • Helps to shrink the uterus back to its pre-pregnancy size

  • Tones up stretched skin in the torso region

"Tehuantepecer" - Sealing ceremony

This is a healing postpartum care called "sealing ceremony" and inherited from the Mayans.
In this ritual the new mother is massaged with a rebozo (a long straight Mexican or Guatemalan scarf traditionally worn by women), and wrapped in a cosy cocoon, made of five scarves or rebozos, placed according to five energetic points.. 

 

You can invite one of your friends or relatives to attend the ceremony as a witness. The process consists in a wrapping method that facilitates shrinkage of the uterus and guides the bones and muscles back to their original positioning.

It helps the mother to call her spirit back and reintegrate her pre-birth body. It helps the woman to close a chapter in her life and open a new one. It is a transition ritual.

 

This is a real moment of relaxation and introspection. This is a precious and sacred treatment when you meet yourself again.

 

Included: Bath, sauna or steaming with herbs, womb and body massage with oil, cacao ceremony.

Length: 3 hours.

"Puelche" - Chilean Postpartum body massage


60mn-60€

This postpartum massage facilitates the secretion of oxytocin, which not only helps feeling relaxed but also promotes the prolactin release, for a good milk flow.

To kick off the session, we start with a foot bath with a special herbal blend, salt and oil. This is for grounding. 

After the massage, feelings of security, balance and power predominate.

50-100€

"Khamsin" - Belly painting

Belly painting is part of an old tradition that has spread through Arabic, Indian and Pakistani cultures. It started with the use of the plant "henna" in Egypt, plant that has travelled all the way to India. Mehndi is the art of applying henna to the body (hands and feet but also back and belly). 
Nowadays belly painting has taken other forms: the henna is still in use but colourful designs are also welcome. Traditional arabic symbols or hindu designs, mandalas, western figurative paintings, there is no limits to the human imagination.
The belly painting can be part of a ceremony (Mother's blessing). This is a rite of passage when the woman becomes a mother. Her belly, her blossoming motherhood, her feminine curves are honoured and glorified. The mother can set her intentions for the rest of the pregnancy and the imminent birth, she can share wishes for her baby.
The Ancients used to think that the painting will protect the mother and the baby. In any case this is an absolute relaxing time for the mother and when photos are taken, a beautiful and meaningful souvenir of the pregnancy and the gorgeous belly.

"Buran" - Gua Sha scraping treatment

Gua Sha is an alternative medicine used in East Asia. A tool (a coin, a spoon or a special comb) is used to scrape the skin and activate the blood circulation, untangle the knots, rebalance the energies... 
This therapy has been practised for centuries to treat different symptoms: fatigue, insomnia, cold, migraine and more.

Etymologically, "Gua" refers to the method of scraping, rubbing. "Sha" refers to the petechiae, the rupture of small vessels under the skin. This accumulation of blood lets us visualise the "clogged" area. By massaging this area with the tool, we drain it. 


Benefits of gua sha are numerous. The technique: 
- Increases micro-circulation

- Reduces inflammation

- Increases immunity

Maintains and strengthens the constitution 

- Improves sleep

 

This treatment will please new mothers as well as their partners. It is not recommended for people who:
have medical conditions affecting the skin or veins

- bleed easily

- take medication to thin their blood

- have deep vein thrombosis

- have a tumor

- have an implant, such as a pacemaker or internal defibrillator

30mn-60€
 

"Pampero" - Yoni Steaming

In Hinduism "yoni" symbolises the Goddess Shakti, the Great Divine Mother. In Sanskrit it means "source", "fountain", "fire pit of incubation", "womb", "vagina". 
The treatment has existed for centuries in different parts of the world, for spiritual cleansing or hormonal balancing. 

Many women use womb steam nowadays to reconnect with their feminine energy, alleviate symptoms of premenstrual syndrome, endometriosis or menopause.

Women bodies are clever and resilient. Here, I suggest this treatment to enhance and accelerate the natural postpartum healing process. Steam and plants will bring warmth, relaxation and the properties of each plant involved in the tailored blend. Lavender, for example, is antiseptic and anti-inflammatory. Calendula is analgesic, vulnerary, circulatory and much more.

It is a spa, for your bottom and your soul.

"Maestro I" - Placenta print

Placenta prints are wonderful keepsakes. Some call them "trees of life" as the print of the placenta looks like a tree with its branches and the umbilical cord looks like a crawling root. Symbol of life, connection, nourishment. Memory of a symbiosis in utero. 

If you have preferences regarding the colours used and the disposition of the cord, mention it in your order.
