Across all cultures throughout the ages, known by Mayan healers as Bajos, or the Koreans as Chai-Yok, also known here in the west as Yoni or V-Steams, short for vaginal steams. It addresses the needs of the womb using herbal steam practices to assist women in regaining their balance within the womb.
The combination of herbs work to nourish, tone, heal, and bring in fresh oxygenated blood, promote cleansing, regulate irregular or absent menstrual cycles, increase fertility, treat uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts, and endometriosis. It helps heal hemorrhoids, treats chronic vaginal yeast infections, and relieves symptoms of dryness of the tissues it comes into contact with.
Many reproductive challenges such as menstrual cramps and infertility are caused when there is excess build up of uterine lining that was not shed in previous cycles “encrusted” to the inside of the uterus. Because this material is built up over time, the uterus and the muscles around it work excessively hard to shed it, often causing pain and fatigue.
At this particular time more women are experiencing disconnection to their womb which creates imbalance, disempowerment, repression and disease. Many of us have forgotten that the woman's holiest temple in the body happens to be the womb. It is the source of our creativity, where the inner voice speaks, deep guidance, clarity and stillness live. By recognizing this and practicing self care we not only physically heal ourselves but we tap into our power and deep transformation. My clients are getting younger, and they are suffering from an array of ailments such as painful periods, infections, infertility, HPV and cervical cancer. When the womb is cleared, a woman may connect more deeply with her feminine core.
A yoni steam works by applying gentle heat, as well as moisture that carries medicinal plant oils, to the exterior tissues of the vagina (the tissue referred to as the vulva). The warmth and moisture increases circulation to the vuvla, causing it to swell and expose the inner labial mucus membranes. These tissues are very porous and absorbent, allowing the bloodstream to pick up the medicinal oils and and carry them into the inner reproductive system, including the uterus. There, they work to help the uterus cleanse and release what is built up on it's lining, ensuring that the next cycle is easy and pain free, helping an egg to implant, and reducing other uterine abnormalities.The result is a healthier, more pleasant cycle and a more connected woman.

Although there are no real clinical studies on vaginal steaming that were performed by western universities, there are case studies . Clinical Studies are what is most valued in the Larger Western Medical System. Since the systems of protocols and procedures most doctors use as their foundation for practice, diagnosis and treatment is based on Clinical Studies, they often invalidate the practice of vaginal steaming as a valid health tool. Coincidentally, however, vaginal steam expert Kris Gonzalez recently uncovered several clinical studies performed on vaginal steaming that were conducted at medical universities in Asia. The studies showed remarkable results proving that steam therapy is an effective treatment for painful periods, infections, infertility, HPV and cervical cancer. The reality is that most doctors don't know about vaginal steaming. Doctors don't study vaginal steaming in medical school! For most doctors it is not a topic that they can speak on from experience or study. When doctors talk about the dangers of steaming its generally coming from a place of hypothesis and not one of experience, reason or understanding. Unfortunately our society does not always honor the voice of women as valid. But the message from women who are steaming is clear -- it helps! There has to be a reason why there is such a long history of vaginal steaming being used across cultures and over several continents for over thousands of years.
