Traditonal Jamu Postpartum Belly Binding

Many mothers look ahead to the birth of their precious little one but the postpartum period is often overlooked. It is very important to nourish and nurture oneself during this time. Many long-standing traditions around the world honour this time in their own way such as the confinement period in Chinese traditions. Being a new mum brings on many new challenges for the body, mind, and spirit and that’s where traditional postpartum care and treatments can make the world of difference.
To help you in your BabyMoon period I offer a tailor made package to help support you on your journey to recovery and restoration. The treatments help the body in the healing process so that you may regain strength as well as getting back to your pre-baby figure quicker.


Based on Traditional Mayan and Javanese postnatal practices, I have designed these treatments to nurture and nourish mums. Through Abdominal massage techniques, organs such as the uterus are realigned, excess gas is expelled from the body. The belly binding helps the tummy area shrink back down to the pre-baby figure. The castor oil herbal mask helps the body to heal faster. The herbal teas, tonics and essential oils help nourish your body while increasing milk production and promoting relaxation.

Frequently Asked Questions:

How soon after giving birth can I begin these treatments?

You can begin your treatments 1 week post birth if you had a natural birth. If you had a c-section then you may begin after 6 weeks, however we recommended you get the all clear from your midwife or doctor during your postnatal check up before beginning the treatments.
When should I book?

You can book as early as 3 months prior to your expected delivery date. However, your exact treatment dates will be confirmed only once you have delivered your baby.
Do I need to pay a deposit and how do I make payment?

A deposit of HK$1000 is required at the time of booking. The outstanding full payment may be made on your first session. Payments may be made by Cash, Cheque or Bank Transfer. Please note deposits are non-refundable and non-transferable.
What does the Belly Binding involve and how long should I wear it for?

A long piece of fabric is used to bind your belly during the treatment. This helps your organs back into place and helps any split abdominal muscles to come back together. It also supports your back and pelvis. We recommend you keep the binding on for 8-10 hours (minimum 6).
Is the binding uncomfortable?

It is best to have the binding on relatively tightly however Jenny will do it to your personal comfort level. So you will still be able to breath and move around.
Are the ingredients used during the treatment safe for breastfeeding?

Yes all the ingredients are safe during breastfeeding. In fact all the ingredients used are of the highest quality and are organic where possible or wild crafted. As a UK trained Clinical Aromatherapist, Jenny hand blends all the herbs and oils, selecting key ingredients to help in your restoration.
When is the postpartum treatment not recommended?

If you have an infection, fever, high blood pressure or hemorrhaging. Or if you it has not been at least one month after a C-Section delivery.
Is the treatment performed on a Massage Bed?

The 75mins Home Treatments are performed on a massage bed but the 30mins Home Treatments will be performed on your bed or sofa at home. For 75mins treatment, a massage bed will be delivered to your home prior to your first treatment and will be kept at your home until your last treatment.
What is castor oil?

Castor oil is an extremely healing oil and has been used to increase milk production among lactating women, and it is occasionally used to quickly and effectively heal the umbilicus of newborns, and is regularly used to stop hormone-related hair loss. Packs are helpful from averting a breastfeeding issue (mastitis, clogged ducts, general soreness and inflammation) to healing from birth (especially beneficial in cases of cesarean section). Castor oil has also been used to treat ovarian cysts, fibroids, and heavy menstrual cycles. During the postpartum period, it is useful for assisting the taxed liver and gallbladder, and getting the intestines going.
What are the benefits of Ginger and Fennel essential oils?

Ginger is a great digestive aid and is extremely warming to the body. It is very important that Mums be kept warm after delivery.
Fennel is a well known herb for increasing milk production. It is also great for getting the digestive system going and warming the body.
