Yoni steaming, also known as vaginal steaming or shall we say “The V-Steam”, is a practice in which a woman allows the warmth of herbal steam to permeate the pelvic bowl. Respected by healers around the globe, yoni steaming is an opportunity to reconnect with your body and utilize the wisdom of plant medicine to heal your menstrual cycle.
- Many reproductive challenges such as menstrual cramps and infertility are caused when there is excess build up of uterine lining that was not shed in previous cycles “encrusted” to the inside of the uterus. Because this material is built up over time, the uterus and the muscles around it work excessively hard to shed it, often causing pain and fatigue. A yoni steam works by applying heat, as well as moisture that carries medicinal plant oils, to the exterior tissues of the vagina to relieve pain and assist in detoxification of the pelvic area. The steams have also proven to improve hemorrhoids and gastrointestinal issues by increasing circulation and improving lymphatic drainage of the pelvic bowl. This allows the steam to be beneficial for men too. Mugwort is the most common used herb to treat the digestive tract as it aids in digestive functions, supports the functions of the stomach, and eases indigestion. Yoni steams can aid in reproductive health, prevent hemorrhoids, and maintain a healthy prostate. Yoni steams are beneficial to both men and women as you sit and relax while the steam restores the body.
- The yoni steam promotes circulation to the whole pelvic region. They help stimulate digestion, treat hemorrhoids, and help with constipation.
