Mind and Body Wellness for New Mothers
The massage can be done immediately after discharge if yours is a normal delivery. However, for cesarean section delivery, we encourage mothers to wait for at least 2 weeks after delivery or when incision is properly healed to start post natal massage.
Post natal massage brings body back to its pre-pregnancy condition by retaining muscles and connective tissue. It also helps to realign the body weight to its original distribution, helps reinstate the uterus to its normal state, eliminates excess body fluids and tones the over stretched areas of skin especially over the abdomen.
Benefits of post natal massage also include relaxation, relief mother of tension and stress from everyday activities and mothering duties. It also relieves aches on shoulders and neck from carrying or feeding your newborn. Another benefit is to promote blood circulation within the body.
We use 2 different types of oil for the massage. Jamu oil is applied to the stomach and a tummy wrap (bengkung – a cotton cloth of 15 metres) is used to wrap the body so as to push the uterus, clear water retention, wind, shrinks the tummy and helps to reduce weight. Hot oil with lemon, lemongrass and eucalyptus is used on other parts of the body. Lemon and lemongrass helps to reduce water retention, burn fats accumulated during pregnancy and eucalyptus is to dispel wind that developed during labour.
