Yoni steaming, also known as peristeaming or vaginal steaming is a noninvasive and ancient self-care practice with a long history of promoting and maintaining healthy wombs and menstrual cycles/periods.
Peri or Yoni steaming is historically known to support postpartum recovery. Today it is used for the former but also as a ritual performed before and after the menstrual phase of a women’s cycle (never during days of bleeding) to promote a healthy and healed womb.
It requires disrobing from the waist down (underwear included), cloaking with steam gown or spa wrap while sitting in a relaxed comfortable position over a pot of yoni steam herbs (think large cup of tea).
No matter your roots, yoni steaming is your birthright as a woman and has been used for centuries by our foremothers to keep the womb healthy and maintain connection to its unique work force and life force (sacred) energy.
HEALING OF THE BODY
Yoni steaming or vaginal steaming is a type of hydrotherapy that combines medicinal properties of herbs and steam to target specific uterine imbalances, such as menstrual cramps, heavy periods, short cycles, clots, fibroids, cysts, brown, black, or purple blood, chronic yeast infections and bacterial vaginosis.
HEALING OF THE SPIRIT
It is commonly used to ease and expedite postpartum recovery however the biggest kept secret is that it can initiate deep spiritual cleansing of trauma from the woman’s sacral chakra center, the gateway of your life force and work force energy. It has the ability to clear energy from past sexual trauma/abuse and previous lovers still bound by the chords of your sacral energy center.
HOW IT WORKS?
Steaming is a type of hydrotherapy that increases circulation to the womb and abdomen, activating the healing movement of energy. When steam is combined with specific herbs, it begins awakening the medicinal properties of the plants, targeting the specific menstrual cycle imbalances and freeing emotional tension.
