… helping to heal the world one womb at a time
“Closing the Bones” is a way to support a woman’s recovery after childbirth; a way to celebrate the amazing abilities of her body; and a way to create a moment of stillness, of meditative peace and reflection in the rollercoaster of emotions of new motherhood.
Angie Twydall, specialises in Shamanic Womb Massage and combines this practice with yoni steaming, shamanic journeying and emotional release techniques to help women heal. This is a postnatal ritual and ceremony, combined with a specialist womb massage and the nurturing use of a shawl or scarf.
Used for – birth trauma, C-section scar tissue, abortions, still births, miscarriage, physical or emotional abuse.
‘Give this back to your culture, because you have lost it. And you need it back.’ Ecuadorian Grandmother.
Beforehand you complete a womb health consultation form and the session is set up according to your needs.
One of the beautiful rooms in Goddess House is prepared for you and Angie lays out one or more shawls (often using a traditional Mexican shawl called a rebozo). Relaxing music and Goddess energy sprays are used creating sacred space.
During a session Angie may rock your hips for a while using a rebozo, and then carry out womb massage over your lower abdomen and hips, using a special warming oil. The movements are designed to loosen and relax you.
Any scar tissue from C-sections, or birth trauma can be released in a safely held space. Finally, you are wrapped to keep you nice and warm, cocooned, safely held in the arms of love.
Elements that fit your personal choices are included: – reading a poem, singing a song, drumming, or simply keeping healing hands on your body, whilst you integrate the process. There is an opportunity to talk things through afterwards. The whole session usually lasts approx. 2hours.
