vaginal steam herbs / herbal pelvic steam

What is pelvic steaming? 

(vaginal steam * v-steam * yoni steam * peristeam)

A healing modality that uses steam and herbs to support pelvic health and postpartum recovery.

What are the benefits?

Pelvic steaming is deeply relaxing and supports overall vitality. It is a powerful tool for postpartum recovery and it can address a myriad of gynecological complaints. It supports a regular, pain-free menstrual cycle.

Is it always good for everyone?

NO. There are specific contraindications, including pregnancy, menstruation, fresh red spotting. There are also individual sensitive that call for shorter duration of steaming.


Steam Session

A steam Session (45- minutes) includes an intake process to determine the best herb blend, length of steam, and steam frequency. Clients sit on a special stool over a pot of herbs that is warm and comfortable (not hot!). Once comfortable on the stool and wrapped in a blanket, Kestrel offers a guided visualization to deepen the relaxation. After the steaming, there is an opportunity to discuss menstrual health or self care. ($45) Schedule Now

Postpartum Steaming

Postpartum steaming is particularly affective because the cervix is open until 6 weeks postpartum, allowing for a complete uterine cleanse which can support over all pelvic health and a healthy menstrual cycle. It can help heal tears, stitches, hemorrhoids, and helps the uterus and other organs return to their pre-pregnancy state. There are specific postpartum steam protocols and sensitive so having the right herbs and steam plan in place is important.
