Malaysia is a beautiful country located in Southeast Asia, slightly north of the equator. This country has the lowest rates of postpartum mood and anxiety disorders in the world at just 3%. This is not a coincidence; it is due to a carefully planned recovery after pregnancy and childbirth that new Mothers follow. Malaysia’s deep postnatal heritage is consisting of Indian Ayurvedic, Chinese and Malay influences. This combination of cultures, with common underlying postnatal recovery principals, results in the most holistic recovery philosophies, beliefs, treatments, skills, and guidelines that can be adapted for any family, culture, or religion. The purpose behind the Malaysian recovery protocol focuses on the “active, process of the revision of pregnancy,” or when the body is reversing the effects of pregnancy. For example, the shedding the retained elements of water, fat, and flatulence that it no longer needs, while supporting the hormone system to rebalance and shoring up the production of breastmilk, to name just a few of occurrences happening.
The number of services below is a guideline as providing recuperation services to a new Mother, and her baby, are customized and highly individual depending on the physical condition of the Mother after giving birth; guided by how the process of the revision of pregnancy is progressing on a daily basis. The practitioner will determine, based on feedback, which body care treatments a Mother’s body needs more or less of. Be assured that you will be provided more effective restoration body care services in the short time that one of our practitioners is with you than in a lifetime.
