Postpartum Ceremony

At 6-12 weeks postpartum, Arvigo technique of Maya abdominal therapies and closing the bones ceremony can be performed with soothing herbal v-steams and gentle work over the pelvis and abdomen.

Postpartum care is an essential and ancient part of healing from birth. Aroha postpartum therapies offer a beautiful way to heal the womb and surrounding areas, as well as providing care and comfort in our safe healing environment.

At 3 months postpartum, the new mother can receive a full Arvigo abdominal treatment or choose the 2 hour 'closing the bones' ceremony.

This sacred session includes a gentle Arvigo Maya abdominal massage sealing and closing after the birthing process.

This is a beautiful, nurturing experience that is so helpful for exhausted mama's who need support for the body's recovery. 

The Closing of the Bones ceremony

Honouring the immense changes a woman has undergone in pregnancy and childbirth and supports bringing her spirit back into her own body. Physically, this ceremony guides her bones back into place, supports her pelvic organs shift, supports her uterus to shrink back down, and stimulates blood flow.  Women who are honoured in this way experience a sense of calm and grounding, re-establishing her sense of self. 

Rosanna uses cleansing with sage or palo santo and creates a sacred space for you. Specific full abdominal nurturing massage (2 hour session only), ceremonial grade cacao, sound healing, and rebozo body wrapping/cocooning techniques learnt with the Arvigo institute in Belize, Central America. She brings the body back to a grounded, connected state with Reiki energy healing.

*Shorter session (90mins) does not include the full abdominal work.

This treatment is encouraged at any stage of a women's life - after birthing or years after birthing, the healing effects are very much needed. 

Creating more peace within, the 'closing the bones' ceremony is a practice that can be transformational for any postpartum mama – whether you are 3 days or 30 years postpartum. This ceremony is a profoundly powerful session.
