Yoni steaming will impact the course of your menses. A great deal of material that is built up and left inside of your womb over the years, which is expelled after doing the yoni steam. The herbs have a powerful effect on the uterus -- cleansing and toning what needs to be healed. Sometimes this means your flow will change and be heavier than usual the first couple steaming sessions, especially if you haven’t had a cycle in a long time. Ultimately, after doing several treatments, your following cycles will be much more consistent, and you'll feel relaxed, rejuvinated, and revitilized. Emotionally, you'll feel your body letting go of past traumas, and you'll feel more connected to your body than ever before.
You can steam at any time of the month, as long as you are not menstruating. It is typically recommended that for treating menstrual pain, you do you at least two vaginal steams in the week leading up to your period.
We recommend waiting at least a week after giving birth, just to give your body some time to heal on its own before introducing the warm steam. Obviously, in cases of extreme bleeding or hemorrhaging, a yoni steam would be contraindicated. There is not a point at which it is too late, as you will receive the benefits any time you decide to steam.
First and most importantly, women who are pregnant, or think there is any possibility that they might be, should NOT do any type of yoni steam. Doing so may endanger the pregnancy, as many of the herbs used can alter hormone levels and can cause contractions of the uterus. Women who have any type of internal infection (cervical, uterine or ovarian inflammation), or a fever, are encouraged not to steam until the symptoms have passed. Women also should not steam while menstruating or when open sores or blisters are present.
Yes, yoni steaming can definitely increase sex drive! On an emotional level, yoni steaming supports us to cultivate a profound sense of self-love and increases our self-confidence (especially as it relates to our yonis!), which has great implications for a woman's sex life. On the physical level, yoni steaming increases circulation and increases lubrication, which is clearly great for the libido and sex life as well. In fact, the very act of steaming is slightly arousing, which helps us get turned on!
While this service is usually done in an shared room, we offer linen partitions that provide privacy and tranquility and you are in a full length gown during your steam.

You will be offered complimentary tea during the steam and water after your steam. We offered a quiet meditative environment with optional settings during Yoni steam parties.
