Nurturing Postpartum Massage and Belly Binding

In India, the tradition of receiving a daily postpartum massage for the initial 40 days after giving birth has endured for centuries, rooted in the wisdom of Ayurveda, the ancient holistic health system. According to Ayurveda, massage holds medicinal properties, serving as a vital tool for postpartum recovery. When a new mother undergoes a hot-oil massage, it aids in calming her nervous system following childbirth, while energetically reconnecting her with her body. In Shelley’s postpartum care practice, daily massages are not just customary but essential for fostering the well-being of the mother during this delicate period.

Shelley’s postpartum hot-oil massage offers a luxurious 60-75 minutes of blissful full-body massage, infused with womb blessings. Drawing from techniques such as Ahbyanga, Swedish, Deep Tissue, and Reiki, each session leaves mothers feeling cradled, cocooned, deeply relaxed, and nourished on a profound level. These massages rejuvenate the body, mind, and soul, providing mothers with a sense of relaxation, rejuvenation, and love.

Additionally, Shelley is a compassionate professional Birth Story Listener, recognizing the significance of integrating the birth story into the postpartum journey. Every massage session ritualistically commences with “massaging the mind,” allowing mothers to express their emotions and thoughts regarding their birth experience. 

This crucial step involves a heartfelt check-in, where mothers are encouraged to vocalize any emotional or psychological challenges they may be facing. This personalized attention ensures that mothers feel heard, supported, and validated throughout their postpartum recovery.

After the massage, Shelley will gently bind the mother’s belly with her custom-made soft bind. Following a soothing shower, Shelley delicately wraps the mother’s belly, providing support to her vulnerable pelvis, womb, and torso. This belly binding not only offers physical support but also helps to retain positive energy, grounding the mother and providing a sense of security and stability for the remainder of her day.
