The room is gently dimmed as incense fills the air. Soft blankets and sheets are laid out on your bed or a cozy spot on the floor. A specially selected oil blend is warmed. The warmed oil is gently applied and massaged into your skin, covering all joints, muscles and marma points – your sensitive trigger points.
The goal is to open channels of healing by improving lymph flow and circulation. Ideally, the oil is left on for 30 minutes before taking a warm shower to complete the restorative experience.
Curious about postnatal massage and how it can benefit your transformative postpartum? We understand your questions and concerns. We’re here to give you valuable insight.
Abhyanga ("oil massage") is a form of Ayurvedic therapy that involves massage of the entire body from the head to the toe with Dosha (your individual constitution)-specific warm herb-infused oil.
Abhyanga is an ancient holistic therapy for emotional healing and calming stress both mentally and physically. Warmed oiled is the key healing factor in Abhyanga. Regular massage includes manipulation of the skin, muscles, tendons and ligaments with or without oil.
A visit dedicated to Abhyanga will be one hour long.
What kind of oil is used? Sesame oil is infused with Shatavari and Bramhi, two South Asian herbs that support the female reproductive system and calm the nervous system. Depending on one’s personal constitution or the time of year I might mix the infusion with extra sesame oil, coconut oil or sunflower oil.
Abhyanga, the traditional Ayurvedic oil massage, offers remarkable benefits for postpartum recovery. This soothing and nourishing practice helps promote relaxation, hormonal balance, rejuvenation and overall well-being, making it an excellent choice for new mothers on the beautiful journey of motherhood.
