I've never heard of this before, but apparently it's been around for quite awhile, and has some benefits...
A popular, new trend in the United States is vaginal steaming and it is being offered through spas and holistic health centers from southern California to New York in order to address a variety of health issues.
While it is technically not new as it has been used in ancient medicine for centuries, it is a re-emerging trend to those in the United States and is also known as 'chai-yok' in Korea and 'bajos' in Central and South America.
For those not familiar with what vaginal steaming is, think of it like a medicinal, herbal, steam facial for the vagina.
Typically, they are done a day or two after a woman has had her period in order to detox and heal any imbalances in the vagina, cervix and uterus.
Vaginal steaming has also been known to ease anxiety in women as well as tackle several other health issues-
• Irregular and painful periods
• Vaginal cysts
• Bladder and yeast infections
• Uterine fibroids
• Scarring from childbirth, hysterectomies and laparoscopies
How does vaginal steaming work?
Vaginal steaming in Chinese medicine is used to relieve stagnation and coldness in the body, and in Eastern medicine in general it is used to dilate the blood vessels, increase blood circulation, provide oxygenation and relax the pelvic floor muscles.
Other ways it improves health depends on the herbs that are used and the healing properties each herb brings to the table. The most commonly used herbs for vaginal steaming are mugwort, basil, calendula, oregano, marshmallow root, wormwood and rosemary.
