Why is it important to have Closing the Bones?
~Taking the time to be loved, held and nurtured just as you did when you carried and birthed your baby should be celebrated!
~In SO many cultures and traditions the 40 days postpartum period is a crucial time for postnatal care. Being cooked and cared for and massages. It's a time for 'mothering the mother' and to nurture her. A sacred time, allowing for relaxation, bonding, and an honouring of the transition into motherhood.
~More often than not within our culture, the focus is on what the baby wants and needs and our mums are almost expected to bounce back, put their every need last and even put aside.
Beyond the physical benefits of Closing the Bones, there is an energetic aspect too, creating the space for the mother to feel nurtured and safe and release emotions that may be held from pregnancy, birth and some of the feelings that come with motherhood.
The 'Closing' of a mothers hips and body help to release tension from the hip joints helping with pelvic instability and a 'closing' after what has been a very open and vulnerable time.
That whole 'Can't pour from an empty cup', well that could not be closer to the truth when you have another human to care for! The postpartum period is definitely a time that requires all of the love, nurture and surrender.

"I experienced the most amazing Closing the Bones session with Skevi. A traditional and very nurturing treatment for postpartum women - all I can say is I wish I'd known about it 9 years ago!! The massage bit was fantastic and really relaxing, then came the special hip rocking - and I can totally understand why it's so important postpartum. I'm a sports therapist and fitness instructor and I have spent years rectifying SIJ issues since my pregnancy all those years ago. I feel like a totally new woman! Thank you so much Skevi"

"My Closing the Bones was one of the best massages I’ve ever had: thorough yet gentle, and she incorporated some extra areas of tension we’d talked about beforehand; afterwards I felt grounded and two inches taller. Skevi is a sweetheart and a total pro"
"I had the Closing the Bones postnatal Massage and would highly recommend! Really relaxing experience and, as Skevi comes to your home, it's really stress free and your baby can be involved too. My little one (who is 9 weeks old) lay on my chest and slept throughout - I think he enjoyed the whole experience too!
It definitely helped release tension in my hips and back and it was nice to have some 'me' time. Skevi was fantastic and even made me a cuppa before she left! A lovely experience for new mums!"
