Hello & welcome to my page on Rebozo.
I have trained with various people in the techniques of using Rebozo which I think is a marvellous tool to;
use whilst pregnant, whilst in labour and also during the postpartum period.
Here is a little history about Rebozo and below are some descriptions of how you can use it - I will be adding videos at a later date.
A little bit of History
Rebozo is a Mexican Shawl which is used throughout the lifetime of a Mexican woman. The shawl is often used during pregnancy, birth and in the postnatal period - but for many women it serves them as a piece of clothing for warmth - It has a number of uses and in Mexico many women keep their Rebozo throughout their lifetime.
It's not just a Mexican thing!
Women worldwide have in the past used a shawl or piece of material during pregnancy.
Many of these cultures have lost the traditional knowledge that was passed down - however with the new wave of interest in Rebozo perhaps it will once again become a must have item of clothing for women.
How Rebozo can end up being one of those simple but great discoveries!
Rebozo is used in such a way that it gently wraps and rocks us - what could be more soothing? The gentle rocking movements are great for articulating joints and moving muscles, ligaments and fascia. During pregnancy it is a lovely way to bond with your partner and if needed it can be a helpful tool during labour.
