Earthen Wellness’s post Natal programme
Motherhood is the biggest blessing that a woman can receive. Being a mother is the best feeling that a woman can experience. A woman has to go through a lot in order to enjoy motherhood. This is a time when there is a lot of joy but, let us remember there are bodily changes, mood swings and depression in some cases. This is but natural as there is a lot of weight gain with the woman feeling less beautiful that before. This nine-month period is one where a woman endures the ups and downs that being pregnant entails, as we all know. This is a time where she has to be at her happiest and we take utmost care to ensure it.
The day is memorable, filled with excitement, gratitude, thankfulness and loads of joy with the birth of a baby. While the whole family is blessed, it is the mother that tops this list. She is the one that has gone through it all and what if we tell you that you can help her have a wonderful experience that is one in a lifetime? Indeed, for Earthen Wellness has come up with a fantastic post-natal programme that is the need of the hour. Why not gift your loved one this 16-day programme?

Allow us to enlighten you with the benefits of both Abhyangam and Shiro Abhyangam
These treatments ease sore spots and relax muscle tension for as we know the whole process of childbirth has been a strain on the body, particularly the abdomen, lower back and hips. The upper back might also be sore if one is breastfeeding in an unsuitable position. Lower back pain is a recurring issue in C Section clients and the massage therapies provide relief. There is an increase the flow of blood and oxygen to the muscles thereby eliminating toxins from the system.
This therapy encourages the body to release endorphins which are the natural pain killers and feel good hormones secreted by the brain. The massage also facilitates the body to release oxytocin which triggers the let-down reflex that releases breast milk. A breast massage will help open blocked ducts, loosen clumps or hardened areas, and reduce the risk of mastitis.
This therapy helps easy recovery from a caesarean section where a gentle massage to the area of the wound will increase blood supply and help with internal healing. Improves well-being and immunity by stimulating lymph flow and also facilitates coping with baby blues and postnatal depression. In addition, the Abhyangam is an excellent stress buster and mood elevator.
The benefits of the Kashyaa Dhara is that when medicated Kashaya is poured all over the body for 30minutes, this helps strengthen body muscles and also helps relieve stress and fatigue.
We know how important it is to you to see your loved one happy. Be rest assured that this is exactly what the result will be.
