Postnatal Ceremony

Embodied-Womancraft-Icon-2

Sar is a custodian of the ‘Closing The Bones’ process - a tradition she learned from the lineage holders of wise Mexican grandmothers, who learned from the keepers of tribal and ceremonial medicine.

This ceremony is performed postnatally or to mark the reaching of a milestone or major time of life transition, such as menopause or the end of a creative project.

During pregnancy, a mothers hips and pelvis widen to make room for her baby and to prepare both for birth. This is a time when she is physically, emotionally and spiritually open.

Gentle, warming massage with the use of woven shawls – called Rebozo – helps to loosen the lower vertebrae and shift the hips, releasing tension, stagnant energy and increasing blood flow.

Light, rhythmic and therapeutic pressure on the abdomen and pelvis mobilises the bones back into primordial position, stimulating and shrinking the womb and bladder.

Increased blood circulation cleanses, renews and moves fluids and tissue, stimulating the immune system.

The intentional space-holding and physical process of closing the bones through massage, wrapping, rocking, cocooning and loving care creates safety and security for a woman to reclaim and call her self, energy and life-force back home.

‘I saw Sar weekly from my second trimester and I don’t think I could have survived my pregnancy without her! Sar has a wonderful energy and her passion and commitment shines through her practice. I would highly recommend her to all pregnant mamas in need of body and soul rejuvenation during pregnancy’

'Sar is intuitive and highly skilled in knowing what you need. The postnatal massage was incredible. I felt deep relaxation, but also so much more. Her bodywork took me back to the labour and helped me release things I wasn't even aware I was holding onto. Sar is deeply respectful and passionate about women's health, so I always feel incredible safe and able to fully let go in her presence. Her bodywork is essential for any pregnant woman and an absolute must after birth. I can't recommend Sar highly enough to any woman who needs some relaxation, downtime or to de-stress.'

'Sar is an incredible space holder. She provides a warm, nurturing and loving space – welcoming you home to your body and the inherent wisdom stored within. Expertly inviting you to a deeper self-awareness through her treatments. Sar has helped me reconnect with my fertility, recover from pregnancy loss and supported my physical and emotional body to be healthy and well. Thank you!'

Lisa

‘After trying many other practitioners, I have been a client of Sar's for two years and every treatment has been highly beneficial and really pleasurable. I suffer from serious disc problems, so I don't just want a relaxing massage. She has an excellent knowledge of the human body and is very professional. I would highly recommend her to anyone needing a special massage therapist.’

Michele

'Sar helped me reconnect with my body and helped me discover what self care is really about. She was treating me for fertility issues, digestive issues, stress and anxiety. Sar helped me reconnect with my body, accept it with its imperfections and love my body and myself. After a little more than 6 months of treatment, I got my first period in 6 years. Then, a few months later I got another one, and before I knew it I fell pregnant with a second baby. A miracle baby who is about to come out, despite having been told by many doctors that I would never be able to have a baby without IVF. I am so grateful for having crossed paths with Sar.'
