Find peace and closure.

Childbirth can leave a mother very "open", physically, emotionally, and spiritually. A "Cerrada" is a postpartum ritual, traditionally done for closing the hips, as well as the mother's energy/self. This traditional ceremony is sometimes referred to as "Closing the Bones" or "Postpartum Sealing".

You must be at least 40 days postpartum for a cerrada. It involves a healing herbal bath, sifting and firm wrapping with Rebozos/Mantas, and ends with a hot cup of tea.

This ceremony can only be added on to a postpartum session, and lasts approximately 2 hours. The total cost is $125.

Benefits of Reiki​

PRENATAL

During early pregnancy, it can reduce many common discomforts such as exhaustion and nausea. 

 

Reiki can relieve issues such as lower back pain, tension, and insomnia. On a mental and emotional level, Reiki can ease anxieties and calm fears.

 

Relieved of some of the physical and emotional discomforts of pregnancy, the expectant mom will sleep more soundly, feeling positive and relaxed.

LABOR

Assisting a laboring mother with Reiki treatment can provide the space and support for her to experience a centered, empowered birth experience.

Reiki can also provide a non-invasive comfort measure, helping to relieve pain from contractions and reduce anxiety during labor.

It can be tremendously gratifying for the spouse or partner to be able to provide an additional source of loving and centered support, creating a deep shared connection between the couple.

POSTPARTUM

Women recovering from surgery or birth trauma can benefit from this additional source of compassionate, palliative support.

 

The medications used to relieve post-surgical pain often have unpleasant side effects, and the discomfort from the incision can make it difficult for women to hold or breastfeed their babies. 

 

Reiki treatment supports the physical healing process, enabling women to get back on their feet sooner.

The Hartford Hospital in Hartford, Connecticut conducted tests in a clinical setting during pregnancy involving the use of just the simplest form of Reiki.  These showed:

94%

reduced stress and anxiety during pregnancy

31%

reduced pain and eliminate epidural or other pharmacetical pain relief.

28%

reduced nausea and morning sickness

28%

quality of sleep was improved
