“The body of one who uses oil massage regularly does not become affected much even if subjected to accidental injuries, or strenuous work. By using oil massage daily, a person is endowed with pleasant touch, trimmed body parts and becomes strong, charming and least affected by old age.”— Charaka Samhita Vol. 1, V: 88-89
I shared the above on the OmBalance Facebook page last week. Abhyanga is one of my Ayurvedic offerings. And it is something that I do for myself just about every day. The benefits of oil application are many. During your pregnancy, abhyanga is a safe and relaxing treatment to support mama for some of those normal pregnancy discomforts. For bebe, abhyanya provides immune and nervous system support, as well as, emotional nourishment. In the postpartum time for mama, the benefits are amazing!
Benefits for all times & for all of us are:
~ improved circulation, especially nerve endings ~ improved digestion ~ tones muscles, lubricates the joints and calms nerves ~ overall better feeling of strength and stamina ~ helps create emotional balance ~ eases postpartum aches and pains ~ helps with increasing lactation ~ aids in getting better rest during those minimal sleep hours
Abhyanga (prenatal, postpartum, everyone) ~ BebeAbhyanga ~ Kizhi (Bundle) ~ Njavarakizhi (Rice Bundles) ~ Head, Neck & Shoulders (great for BF mamas) ~ Facial, Mask & Steam ~ Vettu Vellum (postpartum ceremony) ~ AyurCare Packages
