My first YONI Steam
Hey Momtourage! Friday I had the opportunity to experience a Yoni Steam, if you haven't heard of this it's pretty much a steam treatment for your vagina. As a push gift, my husband purchased the steam at Ma'ati Spa you can learn more here . I headed to the downtown location and was greeted by Martha, she was super sweet and welcoming.
Things started off a little rocky, for some reason the spa had me down for a massage instead of the Yoni steam ( no sweat, a simple mix up) this actually gave me an opportunity to check out the herb garden where she picked the herbs for my steam.
I even spotted a few yoni eggs during the brief tour. This was pretty cool, being able to see first hand the actual herbs being used in the process. Once everything was set up she explained the process and offered me a rob as well as a blanket for the experience.
The process was quit interesting, the most important thing about it is making sure you find your "sweet spot" you have to remember just how sensitive our lady parts are so sitting right on the bench is not the best thing to do. I recommend you slowly lowering yourself over the center of the bench to allow yourself to adjust if needed. Once you're comfortable you need to trap in the steam with the blankets for the next 30-45 mins. This experience was very relaxing, I even did a live Instagram story during the process HA!
The steam has so many benefits such as cleansing, assisting with menstrual cycles, fertility, anxiety the list goes on and on! Even though this seems to be a new trend, it's actually been around for centuries. I personally plan on getting another steam as well as trying some DIY techniques. I would recommend you experiencing a spa service as well as trying a DIY steam which you can find on Pinterest. Have you incorporated yoni steams into to your self care regiment? If so what herbal blends do you use? I'm thinking a quarterly steam will do my body good! Until next time...
