In Thailand, there is a traditional massage that is given to new mothers who just went through delivery. The massage is called “Yoo Fai”, if translated it is somehow like staying in a heated environment. This massage involves a series of steps that have been prepared to heal a woman’s body and regain balance. During pregnancy, a woman’s body goes through a tremendous amount of changes in all aspects of physical, mental, emotional health. Even another woman wouldn’t understand unless you have walked the same path. Your body might never be the same as how it was pre pregnancy, or it might to a certain degree. I would like to emphasize the methodologies of this particular massage and highlight the benefits of this approach. You may be very tempted to see how it is carried as there are many steps involved and a lot of herbs in use. It goes as follows :
:This method uses hot compress wrapped with more than 10 different herbs such as turmeric, lemongrass, camphor, citrus leaves, vine, eucaliptus etc. to massage the body and breast area. Sometimes sitting on one compress will help reduce pain and accelerate postpartum healing.
However, if you do not have this service in your country, you can improvise and perform a simplified version of this at home. There is an electric sauna which is portable and easy to use at home.
Benefits of traditional postpartum care
This type of massage is not completed in just one day. It takes a course of at least 4-7 days by repeatedly performing the same massage daily. You can hire a professional masseur who is experienced with this particular practice to do it for you or apply some of the methods on your own.
