Vaginal steam is a wellness therapy that involves squatting or sitting over a steaming pot of water and infused herbs. There may be a barrier, like a blanket, over the lower half of your body to limit the amount of steam that escapes.
Like acupuncture, this remedy is centuries old and has numerous possible benefits for your health and wellness. You can use steam alone, or opt for vaginal steam with herbs. There are multiple herbs you can include in your steam procedure, and the team may recommend one alone or several in combination. Common options include:
The team at Heaven & Earth Acupuncture helps you decide whether to include herbs in your steam or keep your steam herb-free.
The benefits of vaginal steam apply to your sexual and reproductive system as well as many other parts of your body. A few of the therapy’s many benefits are:
The treatment boasts many benefits because it’s similar to applying medications that are absorbed vaginally. The steam only reaches the vulva, however, and does not enter the vaginal canal, cervix, uterus, or other pelvic organs.
Vaginal steams have been used across multiple cultures and for many years. You may be wondering if the therapy is safe for you. The team at Heaven & Earth Acupuncture reviews your current health and medical history. They must also verify you’re not pregnant as the heat from the steam can cause pregnancy complications.
If you have any known allergies, let the team at Heaven & Earth Acupuncture know ahead of time. Certain herbs in the treatment can cause allergic reactions, so it’s important to avoid any herbs you’re sensitive to.
The team at Heaven & Earth Acupuncture monitors you throughout the treatment to make sure you don’t have any negative reactions and that you remain comfortable throughout the therapy.
