In many traditions you can see women wearing quite wide tissue belt. Studying the Arvigo Therapy I discovered that they are not only ornamental, they actually have a great function in a woman's life. The Uterus needs to move and grow up, not only when a pregnancy is there but during every cycle she grows up in size and weight. As you can read in a previous article the womb is kept in position by sets of ligaments and the fascia. Every time the uterus needs to grow in order to allow the cycle to happen or a pregnancy, the all structure need to stretch and make room for her.
During a monthly cycle the uterus presents a bigger size and weight right before the moon happens, we talk about 5 days prior menses. During those days it would be better not to carry heavy weight, run on hard surface, exercise too much or do anything that stress a structure that is already under stress. If we need to carry on with our lives though, for example I have to treat a person in my practice, we can use a 'faja' that is basically a hip wide, quite long, cotton belt. Using the Faja you give more support to your abdomen and there fore all the structure is relieved from the stress that is already experiencing from the press ion within.
In many tradition they also use it after birth and you can also see another version of it in the picture above.
Personally in the time before my moon, if I have to go to the supermarket or treating a client, I always put my faja on to feel better and relaxed. You can also wear it all day under your clothes, but every now and than it is better to release it and to apply the Self Care or at least leave the circulation move for a bit.
