Bengkung Belly Binding is an ancient art of wrapping the abdomen shortly after giving birth and into the postpartum period. The support of the wrap gives the healing belly extra support and stability as the uterus begins to shrink and the stomach organs begin to move back to normal positions. Additionally, the wrap helps keep the torso and the rest of the body secure and in balance. Belly binding can be a great helper when breastfeeding, as it supports the rib cage and middle back as well.
Even pressure is applied throughout the wrap as it goes around the entire abdominal cavity and in return supports the back and posture. Each session involves a warm belly rub with therapeutic herbs to aid in the healing process as well as self-instruction for further wrapping.
