Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Yoni Steam?
 The practice of Yoni steaming dates back thousands of years ​ can be traced to almost every indigenous culture on Earth. From Africa, Malaysia, Korean, Scandinavian to Mayan. (There are actually cave drawings of it!) These cultures used steaming to tend to women in the postpartum and as a gentle method of maintaining female reproductive health. Yoni steaming in this modern world is a powerful pre or post period hygienic and cleansing practice. Yoni steaming is also known as Vaginal steaming, v-steams, chai-yok, bajos, and womb therapy. 

How do Yoni Steams work?

Yoni steaming is a practice where a woman allows the warmth of herbal steam to permeate the exterior of her vagina and up into her uterus, fallopian tubes and ovaries (womb).  We use Yoni throne chairs to provide a luxury experience while steaming. The warm herbal steam directly enters the womb, softens the tissues, relaxes the belly and the pelvic floor, and increases blood and lymph flow. Yoni steams naturally clean, rebalance, and lubricate the vagina by releasing old, built-up blood and/or discharge and energy (stagnation) from the uterine lining. The vaginal canal contains an abundant supply of blood vessels and mucus membranes, and it is believed that herbal steam can be easily absorbed through the walls of the vagina. Because of this, doctors often prescribe vaginal suppositories to fight infections or balance hormones.  

How is Vaginal Steaming Done?

During your Yoni steam, you are in an enclosed room, completely covered by a yoni steam gown from the neck down. You will sit on one of our custom Yoni steam saunas with a cushion that has an opening for the steam to easily come through. Each sauna and seat is sanitized before and after use.

What are the spiritual/energetic benefits of steaming?

In addition to the physical benefits of cleansing and release during the steam, many women may release deeply held feelings or emotions resulting in the start their own healing process from psychological trauma and repressed emotions. Steaming allows women to purify their core and release energy and emotions that no longer serve their womb spaces in a positive way.  It allows women to forgive themselves and others for unpleasant incidents that have occurred over their lifetimes. It allows women to facilitate their own healing process from the inside out.
