What to Expect During your Session

During your belly binding session, I offer an optional herbal bath & peri-steam session.  Then I prepare the abdomen with warmth and massage. After the womb has been centered and warmed up, I administer the bind of your choice, with instructions on how to wear the Bengkung Belly Bind.  The bind is usually worn under clothing during the day and removed at night for at least the first 40 days postpartum, and often up to 6 months postpartum.

Classic Bengkung

The classic Bengkung bind is a length of cloth wound around the belly and knotted up the center. This bind is very beautiful, and looks great in photos.  It is excellent for those who need a more customized support. In order to properly use this technique, some training is required. I am happy to educate you and a support person during your binding session.

Traditional Bengkung

The Traditional Bengkung bind resembles a corset, with long strips of cloth and loops to tighten and support. This style of belly bind is easy to apply and remove on your own, and easy to adjust throughout the day.  If you really want to maximize the benefits of wearing the Bengkung Belly Bind, this option is the most sustainable way to wear it regularly for an extended period of time.
