Post natal mother roasting massage

At Fertile Ground Health Group we offer a Mother Roasting Massage for new mothers. Mother Roasting is practised in many traditional cultures as part of recovery from birth. It also helps with the demands of early mothering. Based on Chinese Medicine principles, it involves massaging and warming specific areas of the new mothers body. This helps to restore energy and to ensure the digestive, liver and kidney energy systems. Just as important, it also helps the woman’s spirits are recharged.

Mother Roasting in Various Cultures

This practice takes different forms in various cultures. Malaysia, they have a special stone that has been heated in a fire, is wrapped in a cloth and placed on the abdomen. In Thailand, a fire was lit at the mother’s bedside, where she would lie day and night rotating her body every half an hour. The Hopi Indian culture in Arizona, the mother was rested on top of a heated bed of sand and a sheepskin, and then covered well. In all these cultures, during this time she is nurtured, massaged, fed nourishing foods and supported in her recuperation from birth by family helping to care both for her and her newborn.

When should I book?

You can book in a Mother roasting as early as two weeks after the birth of your new baby. Alternatively, whenever you feel you can leave your postpartum bubble. If you have had a c-section we recommend waiting 6 weeks until booking a Mother Roasting treatment.
