Yoni / V-Steaming
How does Yoni/V-Steaming?
Yoni steaming works by supporting your body through its natural processes. Many reproductive challenges such as menstrual cramps and infertility can be caused when there is an 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. 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 increase circulation to the vulva, 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 carry them into the internal reproductive system, including the uterus. There, they work to help the uterus cleanse and release what is built on its lining, and the result is a healthier, more pleasant cycle and a more connected woman.
**While it is true that your uterus and vagina are self-cleaning and self-regulating organs, yoni steaming is a natural way to support your body to function optimally. Yet, yoni steaming is about more than uterine health. The practice brings a reconnection to the spiritual aspects of the female body and the potent energy that lies within. It is not only an opportunity for women to celebrate and cherish our bodies, it is a tool for taking back ownership of our health, and for utilizing the wisdom of our ancestors to support and nourish our well-being today.
IUD Biggest Contraindication
One of the biggest contraindications for yoni steaming is an intrauterine device or IUD. Vaginal steaming is not recommended if a woman is using an IUD, because the steam softens, warms, and opens the cervix. If there is pain and trouble with the flow of menstruation, the steam invites better flow, however in the case of an IUD, that should not move. If it does, it has the potential to get stuck in a suboptimal position, perhaps rendering it ineffective, or even allow for potential perforation of the uterine muscle or cervical damage.
