What is pelvic steaming? (vaginal steam * v-steam * yoni steam * peristeam)
A healing modality from all over the world that uses steam and herbs to support pelvic health and postpartum recovery.
What are the benefits?
Pelvic steaming is a powerful tool for postpartum recovery and it can address a myriad of gynecological complaints. It supports regular, pain-free menstrual cycle, fertility, healing, and relaxation.
Is it always good for everyone?
NO. There are specific contraindications as well as sensitivities to be aware of.
A steam session (45-60 minutes) includes an intake process to determine the best herb blend, length of steam, and steam frequency. Clients sit on a special stool over a pot of herbs that is warm and comfortable (not hot!). I offer sessions in my home ($40) or yours ($50), or consults via email ($27).
