Sensual Yoni Steaming for Reproductive Health & To Support Sexual Healing

"Yoni" is the Sanskrit name for female genitals. It also means sacred space.
Yoni steaming is a sacred, and sensual healing practice that supports this sacred space both energetically, and physically. This relaxing ancient practice brings a slow warmth and increased blood flow to the uterus. It relaxes the muscles in the vaginal canal and wombspace allowing energy to flow and bring balance and healing. The moist, nourishing steam finds its way deep inside and relaxes not only the vulva and outer areas, but the vaginal walls and even up to the cervix. The herbal medicine travels and finds its little molecular way into areas that would otherwise be less simple to relax, taking with it the goodness and healing power of the herbs and botanicals. 
The plant medicines are absorbed into the bloodstream and circulated into the wombspace where they help to further stimulate healing.

 

This practice helps support everything from menstrual flow, cramps, fertility, helping to soften any old endometrium lining, and on an energetic level, offering cleansing support for old lovers or emotional trauma.

This sensual ritual can also help transform one’s relationship to their sexuality and divine feminine energy, providing a sense of emotional healing or reclamation and deep connection to your sexuality and sexual health.

If you are carrying tension or just need some juicing up I recommend a Yoni Steam with lovingly selected herbs as an easy and sensual remedy.

Yoni steaming has now been a part of my fertility self care ritual-arsenal for years. I love doing it at least once per phase of my fertility cycle, except for when I am menstruating.

I had my first experience with this powerful ritual while I was separated from my husband, Tyler. I was seeking out many various forms of womb healing on both a physical and energetic level and stumbled upon this traditional practice through a local doula in Gainesville, near me who owns a Yoni Steaming spa. I was Divinely led to working with her and receiving my very first Yoni Steam.

We chatted about our love for Jesus, epigenetic, generational curses & blessings, yoni eggs, the Divine Feminine, Cycle Syncing, The Bible, organized religion pros and cons, crystals and herbs, and so much more. I knew I was in the right place, and I felt so safe and well tended to. I steamed and sipped hot herbal tea and when I left I felt like a new woman.

I felt I had left years of trauma behind, softened and sloughed away by the steam. It was a beautiful and unforgettable first experience and helped bring even deeper healing to my wombspace during that time of mourning and healingIf you are in the Northern Central Florida area, I recommend visiting Alexandria at www.thegoddessprojectgnv.com

It’s best to work with or consult a practitioner for support or work with your midwife or doula when you're first beginning your practice. I also recommend purchasing a yoni steaming stool to ensure you do not burn yourself with the steam when you're first beginning. I offer custom Herbal Yoni Steaming Blends that are tailored-crafted to your specific womb journey, and it's always best to work with an herbalist who knows their herbs versus going with what you hear on Clubhouse or read on Google.

(believe me, I wound up in a Clubhouse chat room that absolutely HORRIFIED me as I heard all the things women were doing to their vaginas. It is worth it to find someone who knows what they're doing and is well educated in herbs for women health and herbs for yoni steaming in particular.) If you can find someone local to work with, that is my best recommendation and it's a beautiful way to forge new relationships with women doing this work in your area.In the case that there is no one local to work with, may this guide be the next best thing.Book your Wombspace Session Here with me, and get the combined benefit of a Wombspace healing and clearing and pleasure practice to go with your Yoni Steam. We will co-craft the perfect steaming schedule for your fertility cycle and choose herbs that are an energetic match for your intentions and physical healing goals together.

PRECAUTIONS AND CONTRAINDICATIONS TO YONI STEAMING

Do not yoni steam if…

  • You are on your period

  • You are prone to spontaneous bleeding

  • You have an internal or external infection

  • You have an IUD (consult a practitioner)

  • You are trying to conceive (directly following ovulation if you're trying to get pregnant) or you are pregnant (always best to consult with a practitioner)

  • Speak with an herbalist or holistic practitioner (someone like myself) if you are working to heal severe hormonal issues or infertility

  • Do not steam if there is excess heat in the body due to fever, hot flashes, or night sweats (consult a practitioner)

  • Do not use essential oils, they are too harsh for the vagina

  • Speak with a midwife or doula about steaming postpartum or after miscarriage, or abortion.

  • It is not recommended to steam after spray tanning, waxing or laser hair removal. I recommend waiting 4 days after waxing and 2 weeks after laser hair removal.

  • Please note that piercings will need to be removed to avoid burns.

  • You should stop your steam if you feel any of the following; generally unwell, light headed, dizzy, nauseous, intense headache, short of breath or if your body tells you so -- trust your instincts.

  • I do not recommend steaming for longer than 30 minutes. It's best to begin with a short steam, around 10 to 15 minutes in length for the first several times or if you have "short" cycles.
