The  Mission

To help restore your mind, body, and spirit and enable you to better do what you were created to do through massage therapy and doula services.

The  Vision

Our bodies are designed to experience comfort, to heal and to birth when there is balance, alignment and when our needs are met. Connecting intuitively and fully hearing every clients concerns insures that their unique goals are understood. Then the missing piece can be provided, be it knowledge, preparation, or hands-on support, to achieve comfort and the birth experience they desire.

The Name

As the dream to support women began to become a reality, it needed a name, and names are important. So, “Why is this important? What is the goal?” No matter what season of creation you’re in, if you are stressed and/or in pain you will not be able to give your life’s passion 100%. So the name Viumbe, pronounced (vee-OOM- bay), was chosen because it means Creation in Swahili.


How We Help
