Yoni / Vaginal Steam Rituals + Women’s Wellness

As an ayurvedic practitioner and vaginal steam facilitator I am very grateful to offer this beautiful practice to women of all ages; from teenagers through postpartum to post-menopause. Read below and contact me directly to book your steam.

If you suffer with UTI’s, a weak pelvic floor or even pains in the pelvic area, I highly recommend having a Yoni Steam.

I was very apprehensive and was unsure what to expect, but was pleasantly surprised and would defo like to have it on a regular basis as really helped to ease my pains.

Benefits of vaginal steam or yoni steams

Vaginal steams have been used throughout time in most parts of the World as women’s medicine. Also known as chai yokbajos and in ayurveda yoni swedana. I like to use the Sanskrit word and concept of yoni.  Meaning the full female reproductive system including the vulva, vagina and uterus. In Ayurveda both oleation (oil massage) and steam are practised as part of treatment protocols even today.

Women’s health

This is traditional practise and medical Western science still needs to catch up on so-called evidence-based research here.

But vaginal steams have been used through time postpartum, for various complaints around our menstrual cycle such as painful periods, cramps, heavy flow, too light flow, irregular or too long or very short cycles. Women with endometriosis and PSOS have reported positive results. Fertility issues, as well as changes during menopause, are also reasons why women try yoni steams.**

On another level using steam at the pelvis and pelvic floor makes you relax deeply. Just like any steam bath, bath or sauna. The muscles relax, the blood circulation increases and the steam carries the qualities of the plant material to the area. The deep relaxation is not just felt in this area. You might even breathe better from a more balanced pelvic floor, your mind and emotions may also relax. Greater blood circulation brings more oxygen and gets everything flowing better. Especially if we think of stagnation in an Ayurvedic sense – benefitting our whole being.

FAQ

What happens during the steam?


What should I wear?

During the steam you will undress from the waist down (you can keep your socks on) and be covered by a towel. You can also wear a loose dress.

What happens during the steam?

Usually, you just enjoy relaxing. Maybe meditating, reading, journaling, being. You are covered up by a towel and can simply enjoy the rest.

How do I feel afterwards?

I will offer aftercare suggestions. Most women feel completely relaxed, grounded, with a sense of feeling clean and fresh. Some may feel the blood circulation improve and have a tingly feeling. One side effect can be feeling more sensuous and moist. It is best to keep warm, stay hydrated and relax as much as possible.

 

 

Yoni / Vaginal Steam Rituals + Women’s Wellness

~ online consultations

I am now offering Yoni or V-steams. They are nothing new – but they are experiencing a revival. Vaginal steaming has been and still is, a popular women’s health practises in cultures from South America to Korea, African countries like Morocco and Ghana to the Caribbean. And through Turkey to Bali.

It’s women’s medicine, simple, traditional and handed down generation to generation. Used to support women with our menstrual cycle, fertility, postpartum recovery and urogynecological issues. See below for more details.

The steam will be the vehicle for the properties of your herbal combination to reach your pelvic area. It’s a deeply relaxing treatment enjoyed by women of all ages. Many women report it’s as relaxing as a massage, a warm bath and the perfect sauna/steam bath experience.

The consultation, herbal blends for the steam and essential oil blends for abdominal massage are based on my experience and qualifications in Ayurveda, clinical Aromatherapy and specialist vaginal steam facilitator training.
