REBOZO AND REIKI
Reiki is a safe and effective healing system that is suitable to use throughout your entire pregnancy, labour and the post natal period. It is a way to restore the balance of mind and body with no side effects. Unlike prescription medications, reiki goes beyond just the physical sense to provide emotional support and bring a sense of calm and positivity to both mother and her unborn child.
Reiki during pregnancy can be a most gentle, yet powerful, non-invasive treatment that may help symptoms such as tiredness, low back pain, morning sickness, mood changes, high blood pressure, stress and emotional disruption experienced both during and after pregnancy.

What is a Rebozo?
Traditionally worn by Mexican women it is like a shawl, handwoven from cotton,wool,silk and rayon and finished with finger weaved intricate patterns. It is used by indigenous women to carry babies, large bundles, provide shade
and warmth both to Mamma and baby.Mexican midwives use the rebozo to do the mateada, a rocking massage
technique in labour.
In labour this is a wonderful aid to relaxation and with certain positions canhold you, support you and take pressure off your back in active labour, can be used to turn babies and encourage babies descent and even encourage
the placenta to ease away post birth without drug intervention.
Post labour it balances and relaxes the pelvis, lower back, womb and ligaments as well as a wonderful treatment.
I offer workshops for Doulas and Midwives to learn how to use the Rebozo. Please see my Workshops page for more details.
To prepare you for birth I offer a 2 hour session for pregnant couples who would like to learn Active Birth techniques with the Rebozo that can be put to use during labour. This valuable workshop is £55.
