Closing of the Body / Bones

This ceremony & bodywork, rooted in Mexican tradition, marks a significant rite of passage. It is a beautiful way to honor oneself after birth, but it can also hold deep meaning in marking other forms of endings and new beginnings, such as after a stillbirth, divorce, miscarriage, or similar experiences.

Central to the Closing of the Body ceremony is the “Closing of the Bones,” where scarves are used to envelop and deeply cover the body with strong pressure. After your body has expanded and opened during pregnancy and childbirth, during the closing of the bones, your body will be rocked, bound, and closed using 7 scarves (rebozos).

The process simultaneously relaxes and awakens the body, allowing for the integration of physical and emotional aspects of experiences.

The Closing the Bones ceremony facilitates physical realignment of the pelvis post-birth, promoting pelvic stability and long-term health, while also providing a safe space for emotional release, closure, in the transition to motherhood.

Adapted to meet the needs of women in Israel, I offer variations including combining it with birth processing, offering only the bodywork component, or hosting a group ceremony with friends or family.

You can do this as early as around 3 weeks after birth, but also years later – whenever you feel you want to honor your body and soul for what it went through.
