aka Vaginal Steaming
"Vaginal steaming involves sitting or kneeling over steam which permeates the pores, soft tissue, and other crevices of the pelvic region." - Steamy Chick
Steaming is not another health fad on trend because of the celebrities who have talked out it publicly. It is an ancient practice women have been participating in all across the world. There is not one single culture or area of the planet that is known to originate the practice but evidence that many cultures and generations of women steamed.
"Although vaginal steaming has not been extensively studied by medical science, there is growing evidence to suggest that it may be a beneficial practice for certain gynecological conditions.
Topics studied include vaginal steaming for postpartum recovery, chlamydia, genital infection, vaginal atrophy, menstrual pain, irregular vaginal discharge, vaginitis, high-risk HPV, cervical cancer, and yeast infections." - SC
Do people get results from steaming? Yes, there are ongoing data gathering resources to help bring to the forefront of women's health the benefits and results of steaming.
I am currently in the process of earning my vaginal steam practitioner certification through The Peristeam Hydrotherapy Institute approved as a continuing education provider by the Midwifery Education Accreditation Council and the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine.
