A what steam?

The Vaginal Steam has been used for centuries as a traditional home remedy for good health care. In each session an individual blend of herbs will be created to fit your personal needs. The dried herbs are selected for their medicinal properties.


This pleasant and relaxing bath can help manage PMS symptoms, uterine cramping, fertility, post-natal; peri and post-menopausal symptoms.

Known in Central and South America as "bajos" (ba-hoes), and in Korea as "chai-yok," the vaginal steam is a centuries-old technique that’s been gaining popularity in holistic practices, physical therapy centers, and spas in the United States.


The V-Steams are ph balanced to help the body naturally cleanse the vaginal and uterine linings in a safe and gentle way. The warm herbal steam nourishes and tonifies the vaginal and uterine tissues. While improving circulation, the steams alleviate symptoms caused by, or related to, congestion in these tissues - boosting circulation to the pelvis -- increasing oxygenation, dilation of blood vessels, and a relaxing of the pelvic floor muscles that tend to cramp or spasm before or during menstruation.


What is a V Steam Session like?

First, you'll cozy up in a small room devoted to the ancient technique. You'll talk with our V Steam Specialist who will determine the mix of herbs used for the steam tailored to your specific needs.


Then you'll be shown to the steam room, where you undress, put on a silk robe and wrap a blanket around your waist so that it drapes to the floor and creates a tent. Then you'll sit on the steam chair and relax. 


Somewhat like hovering over a humidifier, with a sense of a pleasant steam traveling into the body, sipping on a cup of tea, it is your choice whether you read, journal, meditate, set intentions or do sweet nothing during the steam session. Our Steam Specialist will quietly check in with you over the duration of the session, monitoring the steam temperature to ensure it hovers between 120-130F for best results.
