Vaginal steaming is an ancient practice of sitting or squatting over a steaming pot of water infused with herbs. Also known as V-Steam or Yoni Steaming, it is a beautiful, meditative ritual great for regulating menstrual cycles, reducing pain, disinfecting and nourishing the uterus and supporting reproductive health.
Holistically it supports emotional and spiritual cleansing by allowing you to reconnect with your body. It helps you emotionally heal and cleanse from past relationships by releasing stored energy and emotions. Vaginal tissues are really absorbent, the heat of the steam promotes opening and cleansing. By softening the tissues, it allows for vital blood flow to your womb which supports the release of any stagnant blood that may have built up. Yoni Steaming has also been said to tighten the vagina as well.
This simple and gentle technique has helped many women with a variety of health and emotional issues.
