Closing the Bones

Closing the Bones is an ancient tradition offering an opportunity for you to be wonderfully nurtured after your experience of birth.

It is available at any point after your baby is born, although many women appreciate the beautifully deep and specific massage without having carried a child, or indeed many years after.  You can have your ‘bones closed’ from any time that you feel ready, whether you have been waiting for the right time or have only just heard about Closing the Bones.

Closing the Bones £65 (or 3 sessions for £180)

Mileage:  Please be aware that in addition to the above fees, if you live outside the Fylde Coast (i.e. you do not have an FY postcode) then I will include a standard mileage charge to your total fee.  Total costs will always be discussed with you before you make any commitment.
