What is vaginal steaming?
Vaginal Steaming is the ancient practice of sitting over a pot of warm water steeped with herbs in an effort to alleviate menstrual cycle issues and assist in postpartum healing. This practice has been in effect for thousands of years, dating as far back as Mesopotamia. Vaginal Steaming was also mentioned in the first book of medicine in ancient China and since then, this practice has been found in over 50 countries around the world. It is a universal practice of healing developed by women, for women.
There are many ways to use vaginal steaming, the most common being for postpartum and post-period care as a means to effectively clean out the uterus. Vaginal steaming is useful for any person with a uterus from pre-pubescent girls to women who have had hysterectomies to post-menopausal women. It can be used to heal almost any menstrual cycle imbalance and is a safe, hygienic, non-invasive alternative to procedures.
How does vaginal steaming work?
Vaginal steaming works by increasing blood circulation and oxygen throughout the body, specifically in the pelvic floor muscles, organs, soft tissues, and mucus membranes. This is made possible by the warm steam. Whenever warmth is added to the body it increases circulation to that area. In the terms of Traditional Chinese Medicine, the warmth and added circulation helps to bring movement to our meridians (energy channels), which helps to distribute chi (energy) more efficiently through the body.
The increased circulation that steaming brings, works alongside your natural cycle to clean out old residue and stabilize your cycle, allowing the pelvic organs to function as they are meant to be.
