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, from early days to years later! It is warming and gently and nurturing when received once, its even more beneficial to have your bones closed more than once over a few weeks as your body recovers and adjusts and heals.
