Abhyanga (Warm Oil Application) –
Abhyanga helps to clarify the mind and stimulate the body. Warm oil specifically formulated for the client is applied to the body with rhythmic gentle strokes. Abhyanga does not penetrate the deep tissue of the body. It is meant to nourish the body with repetitive touch; promoting healthy circulation and aids in joint comfort.
“The abhyanga relaxed my body, mind, and spirit. Truly a blessing to have our doula Cheryl and my beloved husband present as we consciously prepare to welcome our second child into this crazy, beautiful world!”
~ Miriam, OmBalance & HB Mama
