Yoni steaming, or vaginal steaming, is an ancient practice that soothes the reproductive system. The detoxification process can increase circulation, release toxins and treat stress. It can also decrease menstrual flow, regulate menstrual cycles and ease menstrual and menopause symptoms.
Built-up uterine lining can cause the uterus and muscles to work hard to shred it, which in turn can cause pain and fatigue during a menstrual cycle. Releasing the leftover uterine lining can create easier menstrual cycles.
Yoni steaming addresses this by having the client sit over a container of herbal-infused steam and letting the steam waft towards the exterior of the vagina. The steam applies heat and moisture to the exterior tissues, which increases circulation, causing them to swell and expose the inner labial mucous membranes.
This allows steam to enter through the pores of the exterior of the vagina into the bloodstream, which takes the steam to the inner reproductive system to help the uterus cleanse and release any build-up of the uterine lining.
