Being practiced for more than 1000 years now, Embalming is a way of preserving your loved one from decomposition by injecting chemicals and solutions. Though it is a personal choice, the intention is generally to make the lost one look suitable for a religious ceremony or funeral service. Embalming services are mandatory in case the body is to be transported by train or by air. Another reason for choosing to get your loved one embalmed is to spend more time with them and bid goodbye. Seeing your loved one restored gives an appearance of peaceful sleep and wellness.
The process of embalming services starts with preparing the body. Since its a surgical process, the body is first disinfected. Then the limbs are massaged to relieve the stiffness. Following this, the two mains steps of embalming are performed – setting the facial features and the process of arterial or cavity embalming.
Types of Embalming Services.
Arterial embalming involves removing the blood through veins and then replacing it with the embalming solution. On the other hand, in cavity embalming services, a small incision is made in the lower abdomen of the body to drain the gas and fluid content of the body. It is then replaced with formaldehyde-based chemical mixtures.
The embalming services are highly surgical and involve a lot of planning and resources. Since it is highly technical, one should go with only experienced services. Our team assures you of the best of services.
