Vaginal Steaming is a traditional healing method use to cleanse the uterus, help improve fertility, and support overall wellbeing. Referred to as “bajos” in Spanish, vaginal steams have been used by Maya healers and midwives for centuries. Korean healers also use this healing modality and refer to is as “chai-yok.”
How do vaginal steams work?
Specific herbs are steeped in hot water to create a warm vaginal steam bath. The steam carries the medicinal benefits of the plants, including volatile oils, to the womb and perineum. Once absorbed through the tissues, the healing herbal compounds then enter the bloodstream, having a direct healing benefit on the reproductive system since vaginal tissue is one the most most absorbent in the body.

Depending on your wants and needs, Julia may provide you with a guided meditation or allow you the space to enjoy the vaginal steam bath in privacy.
Is this for me?
Vaginal steams are safe for most individuals. There are a few cases when vaginal steaming is contraindicated. It is not recommended if you are pregnant, currently on your period, or have spontaneous heavy bleeding or 2 periods in one month.
