When this package is delivered in-person, I will be there to draw the baths, prepare the teas, offer the marma/abhyanga for mom and/or baby or teach self-massage, perform the Closing of the Bones, and bind the belly. I am also able to hold space for meditation, birth story processing, and to explain the history behind these ancient healing traditions from around the globe.
When delivered virtually/as a care package, I will do my best to guide you through a do-it-yourself version of this service package during an accompanying virtual meeting and through the enclosed instruction packet (please note: some of the above offerings cannot be offered virtually).
Either package option makes an amazing baby shower gift for that new mama in your life!
It’s important to note that these practices are typically done within a group of women who take care of each other once one of them has a baby - I hope that this service package will bring a bit of the proverbial “village” into your home!
