Belly Binding 101 Classes now available at Acorn Treasures in Huntsville!
Bengkung Belly Binding is great for back & womb support/healing after pregnancy, as well as back & belly support, tightening and toning at any stage of life.
Binding the abdomen and hips during the first 3 months after giving birth encourages your stomach muscles to strengthen and come back together and helps to reshape your hips, while the hormone, Relaxin, is still in play. It may also help with diastasis recti and provides support for good posture while breast feeding. Also helpful in getting rid of the "postpartum pooch."
Ancient beliefs, originating in Malaysia, also suggest that wrapping the abdomen in this manner holds in warmth and keeps cold out, thus replenishing Qi and promoting healthy blood flow to the areas of the body that need healing after birth.
Wear over or under clothing, with or without a warming/toning belly paste.
