Perineal herbal steam and focused womb massage (90 minutes, £80)
Perineal steaming is also called pelvic steaming and yoni steaming. Yoni is a Hindu concept that is used to describe physical structures the vulva, vagina & womb combined with the energetic and spiritual notions that these structures form centre of sacred feminine wisdom. A perineal or yoni steam is the ancient practice of sitting or squatting over a steaming pot of water infused with healing herbs. It is important to have the dose of the infusion correct, and the heat of the steam regulated.
Perineal steaming can help to regulate menstrual cycles, reduce menstrual pain, alleviate endometriosis and adenomyosis symptoms, help with PCOS and fibroids, nourish fertility and reproductive health, release premenstrual tension, and support the endocrine system through perimenopausal and menopausal changes. Under the guidance of an herbalist or a womb health perineal steam can encourage emotional and physical cleansing and healing after miscarriage or childbirth (*there are many considerations to this practice in these circumstances so please seek professional advice).
Perineal steaming can help release energetic and physical imbalances and support spiritual and emotional healing. The process can help women reconnect with her feminine centre and intuition. Perineal steaming is not recommended during pregnancy or if there is a possibility of pregnancy, when you are bleeding, if you have an IUD in situ or if you have a vaginal infection or sores on your vulva.
Here in clinic I have a specialist yoni steam chair so you will be comfortable throughout this practice, you are fully draped and can be left in privacy with an audio journey or guided in person. I also teach you how to practice perineal steaming at home and provide herbal infusions.
Ideally a perineal steam will form part of a 90-minute womb wellness treatment incorporating focused womb massage. Womb massage is a fusion of deep sacral, abdomen and womb massage techniques aiming to address hormonal, reproductive and stress related conditions including stored pelvic trauma.
