"I have NEVER heard of a VAGINAL STEAM until now!" exclaimed Rachel Hollis, renowned Public Speaker and Author of the best selling books "Girl Wash Your Face" and "Girl Stop Apologizing"
With a room full of Fitness Gurus and Wellness business owners, I had the great pleasure of exposing and explaining the magical wonders of what a Vaginal Steam was to the participants at the recent MindBody BOLD Conference in Anaheim, CA this past weekend. With approximately 20,000 participants at the conference, MindBody has set the precedence for supporting and providing resources for the best of the best in the Health & Wellness arena.
Yet, after taking a poll in the audience, only a small handful had ever heard of the term. The majority of the audience, including Rachel Hollis, were blown away that such a "thing" even existed, more less what" it" was used for.
So, here's the skinny on what a vaginal steam, commonly known as a "v-steam" or in some circles a "yoni steam" really is.
A vaginal steam is an ancient therapeutic treatment that has been around way longer than you and I! In countries across the globe, this healing modality uses medicinal herbs to DETOXIFY, CLEANSE, TIGHTEN, STRENGTHEN & BALANCE your precious womb space.
At Sultana Steam, the herbs are customized specifically for each woman's individual and specific needs. Upon determining the proper herb blend, the herbs are then boiled (in the steam pot) and release volatile oils into the water. As the woman comfortably sits on the steam seat, (imagine, a seat with an opening in the top) the herbs are placed at a safe distance under her body so that the steam is able to permeate the cell membranes, get into the blood stream, and bring a plethora of benefits.
Let's dispel the myths and the ignorance behind this ancient practice and discuss what a vaginal steam is NOT!
1) A vaginal steam is not INVASIVE! There is absolutely nothing being placed inside your precious vagina during this treatment.
2) A vaginal steam DOES NOT hurt! It is a relaxing and therapeutic treatment designed for ALL women.
3) A vaginal steam is not solely for cosmetic purposes. While some of the benefits do include tightening and strengthening-that's only the beginning!
