Closing the Bones

Closing the Bones is a Mexican tradition to close the mother’s body/bones and encourage a new flow of ENERGY. and letting go of anything that no longer serves you.

It is my intention is to create a SACRED SPACE for you, where we can honour and acknowledge your experience of birth, showing tenderness and gratitude to your body for the incredible work that she has done for you and your baby.

We start with a cuppa and a chat to unpack and process your birth/s. This is an important part of the treatment if you wish it to be so.

I’ll work on reflexology points on your feet and release tension from your legs.

I’ll then use the rebozo for some blissful hip rocking and binding. During this time pelvic bones are realigned releasing unresolved emotions which can be held in the hips.

The abdominal massage includes your hips and lower back, warming and relaxing your muscles,  moving and cleansing your lymphatic system and fluids,  immune system is boosted and gently encourages your body to shift from sympathetic  (fight or flight) to a parasympathetic state (rest, restore & recovery).

I’ll then cover you with a warm blanket, a lavender eye pillow and sometimes I use heavier yoga sandbags to help even deeper relaxation.

It is BENEFICIAL for women at ANY STAGE OF LIFE.

One to One

I sought out the help of Julie as I thought I had never been quite right since the birth of my last child (7 years ago) and I had unexpected pain in my abdomen. Doctors could find no cause of pain so I felt it was a muscular skeletal problem which does not show up on their tests. 3 months of daily exercises have completely changed my abdomen. I’ve worked on Julie’s exercises and managed to also sort out a long standing shoulder problem while I was fixing my core. There will never be a time in my future when I do not practice yoga now. Thank you for the gift of body knowledge.

One to One

In August 2020 I experienced an incredibly traumatic birth with my son that resulted in a full blood transfusion and time in ICU, along with an extended period in hospital away from him. Once I got home, rather than enjoying my new born I was beginning to experience increasing anxiety, fear and depression. A number of friends had recommended Julie and I was also aware of her work from the yoga community, so I approached her for some support. Upon meeting I immediately felt at ease-Julie has an incredibly warm, nurturing and kind soul and welcomed me with open arms. We spent time talking through my experience before working through some of the physical and psychological effects of childbirth. Her hands-on approach was incredibly nurturing and I felt truly heard and held. She truly is a Mother in every sense of the word and I cant recommend her highly enough to expectant and new mothers.

I had a one to one massage session with Julie when I was heavily pregnant and in a lot of pain with my hands. Not only was it a lovely relaxing experience when I was playing the waiting game but the massage and DoTerra cream really helped my painful hands and she also trained my partner Dan to do the hand massage for me afterwards. Julie’s endless dedication to women’s wellbeing is priceless, she cares and reassures and also provides practical exercises and tips to assist post birth recovery. I left each class feeling positive, charged up and back on track – enough to keep me going until the next class. Massive thank you Julie!
