About courses and workshops - questions and answers

Rebozo massage is a holistic non-invasive method to support pregnant women through their pregnancy. It is a gentle effective pregnant massage developed by Mexican midwives over many generations. Rebozo massage has spread to Europe and the West and has become popular in recent years because it relieves pregnancy discomfort, soothes and relaxes to the great relief and delight of pregnant women who have tried the method.

WHAT IS REBOZO MASSAGE?

Rebozo massage:
  • relief of pregnancy pain and discomfort.
  • safe and natural muscle relaxation.
  • to get the baby in the right position in the pelvis before birth.
  • painless and is also used for non-invasive reversal attempts for breech baby.
  • labor stimulation - during birth in the labor phase.
  • supports the baby's rotation through the birth canal - during birth.
  • can correct inappropriate head position - during childbirth.
  • an aid to the body's recovery after childbirth.
  • also beneficial for other purposes.
Rebozo massage is performed with a rebozo, hence the name. A rebozo is a traditional Mexican handwoven shawl/scarf. The massage has been developed through centuries of use of the rebozo. A rebozo is handwoven on pedal looms by Mexican artisans who have passed down their knowledge and technique through generations. All Mexican women have at least one rebozo, which they use as a shawl or scarf, to carry their child and for rebozo massage.

RECOMMENDED BY MIDWIVES

More and more midwives recommends and are using rebozo massage, as they have experienced how much it helps the pregnant woman during pregnancy, but also during labour, from when the first contractions start, and afterwards when the body needs to recover after the birth.

"BE PREGNANT TOGETHER" - ACTIVE HELP FROM PARTNER

Rebozo massage is a fun, safe, natural and effective way to be pregnant with your partner, friends or family. With the rebozo, fathers/partners can get involved in the birth by performing rebozo massage, which means they actively help relieve pain and get baby in the right position.

WHY CHOOSE A REAL AUTHENTIC REBOZO FOR REBOZO MASSAGE?

Massaging with a authentic handwoven rebozo targets muscles on the pregnant woman that can't be reached with ordinary massage with hands or other types of fabric. It is much easier for a professional (midwife, doula, obstetrician, etc.) as the effect is achieved with less physical work because the stretch and meassurements support the massager. The fabric grips easily, unlike other types of fabric that don't wrap in the same way and can slip around during the massage.

HOW TO MAKE REBOZO MASSAGE?

Rebozo massage works by taking a rebozo and spreading the centre of the rebozo over the area of the body you want to massage. The massage is given by gripping the ends of the rebozo and then switch between three techniques: shaking the muscles, stretching the muscles and pausing for relaxation between movements.

DURING PREGNANCY - RELIEF OF PREGNANCY PAINS, RELAXATION AND PREPARATION FOR CHILDBIRTH

Rebozo massage has the special effect of both relieving pregnancy discomfort and treating pain in pregnant women, and rebozo massage massages deeper in a safe way so that, for example by relaxing the deep muscles in the pelvis, you positively affect the baby with rocking movements and create better space for the baby in the belly.

PRE-NATAL AND LABOR PHASE - BIRTHING POSITION AND TURN ATTEMPTS

Rebozo massage, with the right technique, can both rotate the baby into the right birthing position - ready for birth, the massage can stimulate labor and you can make painless turn attempts of the baby in a natural and safe way for both mother and baby. For example, a midwife, doula or obstetrician may carry out the massage.

DURING LABOR - BABY ROTATION, HEAD POSITION & AVOIDING CAESAREAN SECTION

The rebozo technique relaxes the muscles in and around the pelvis, which can help support the baby's rotation through the birth canal and correct inappropriate head positions. Rebozo massage can therefore also help to avoid caesarean sections. This is supported if you receive rebozo massage continuously during pregnancy. In Mexico, they do rebozo massage during labour (and in preparation for labour), where labour goes a lot faster because the massage supports the baby's passage through the birth canal and women relax more.

Discover what a real rebozo can do for you


  • Birth preparation and pregnancy with rebozo massage:
    Relief, well-being and relaxation for pregnant women. Deep and safe massage.

  • Before and during birth:
    Improves the chances of a complication-free birth. Read more under the tab page "rebozo massage".
  • For baby's developmental leaps, teething and in general: a rebozo sling creates calmness and provides easy and quick relief when the baby needs extra care by being carried close to the body.
  • Helping parents with challenges: Carrying in a rebozo wrap or sling reduces colic, reflux and eases baby's digestive system when carried belly-to-belly and in the vertical position.
  • Treatment of stress and anxiety: Rebozo massage releases oxytocin and endorphins, relaxing the body and making you feel pleasant. It's easy to get tense when you feel stress or anxiety. The massage treats this.
  • Treatment massage: Can be used for pain, soreness, disability, chronic pain and more without posing any risk, as long as you stop the massage in case of discomfort.
  • Treatment for autism, ADHD, special sensitivities and the like: Rebozo massage creates calm, security and pleasant physical contact for children with autism, ADHD, special sensitivities and the like - without overstimulation.

Rebozo massage can be used as a considerate massage to create calm and security for children with for example autism, ADHD, special sensitivities, body anxiety and the like, as they may feel discomfort with sensory or physical touch, where a rebozo's target envelops the child in a pleasant, non-overpowering way.

Rebozo massage can therefore be done at home by the child's parents and used as a complement to treatment and support by a special educator, osteopath, physiotherapist, educator, paediatrician and the like.

The stretch from the hand wrap is the same type as a fixed wrap, but with the difference that a rebozo's fabric feels neither stiff nor heavy, but instead light and the stretch works with the child's movement and body in a non-invasive way. The child is physically touched by the cloth and sensually stimulated, without being overstimulated, but calming. It can help your baby to calm down and fall asleep.

You get the maximum effect of rebozo massage when you use a real rebozo


There is a really big difference between using a genuine handwoven rebozo compared to another piece of cloth
, such as a towel, plain scarf, sheet and the like. Rebozo massage techniques have evolved from centuries of rebozo use, hence the name. Therefore, a real rebozo is perfect in dimensions, length and width, and the diagonal stretch that gives the optimal effect of the massage for the pregnant and postpartum. Other garments can also slip into the hands of the masseur and onto the pregnant body. There is therefore also greater security associated with using a genuine rebozo.

We often get feedback that professionals find that their clients/customers start with a different cloth than an authentic rebozo, but then come back and want to buy a rebozo. As they have tried it on the course and have not achieved the same effect with the other cloth they used.

It's much easier for the massager, as the rebozo gets a better grip during the exercises, and therefore requires less physical effort. It spares the practitioner's back in the long run compared to other garments/clothes. With a rebozo, the massage also penetrates deeper and gently into the muscles. Some other cloth materials do not have stretch, and you therefore lose an important element of the rebozo massage, where you stretch the rebozo around the body, and it stretches the muscles of the pregnant woman. This stretching helps to relax the muscles.
