I offer you a pathway to a practice of love and kindness toward yourself! Its simple really, the steam alone stimulates blood flow and brings energy to heal your divine femininity. Add the powerful herbs that assist in the repair and you have created a restorative, intimate, and sacred ritual of healing and love.
As I started to research the birth field in our area, I was AMAZED at the network of doulas, midwives, childbirth educators, nurses and many, many more that I was able to connect with. One such lovely human I met introduced me to steaming with her Vaginal Steaming for Postpartum Workshop and from there, I began my own research.
So I had never heard of such a thing, but I am a cheerleader for personal care and therapeutic body work so this seemed totally possible! I read books (that were hard to find), listened to podcasts, discovered steamychick.com, researched herbs, and absorbed testimonials of at least one hundred women. AND you dont need to be postpartum or have ever had children to steam!
Then I started steaming myself.
From the very first moment, it felt like a tradition in the making! I turned the lights down, faced a private window overlooking the trees, grabbed my book and settled in. I like to wrap up with a nice heavy blanket and create a warm cocoon to soak in all the steamy herbs.
Starting with the physical benefits;
I saw improvement in myself regarding prolapse, PH leveling, less frequent need to urinate/ complete elimination of bladder, and overall appreciation and love for myself.
I found a path to meditation that works for me. Maybe it works for you too?
My knowledge of herbs has grown and therefore, so has my love of herbs. I have a brand new baby garden filled with Womens Herbs. I can customize an herbal concoction best suiting YOUR needs, and I can help you to set up a space for steaming inside or outside of your home.

And much more as steaming is not only an ancient cultural ritual, but it is being used widely by midwives and doulas to provide care for their patients.
Your safety and privacy are very important to me. I have been trained to screen each client I work with to ensure their safety and well being before beginning any steaming plan. Our discussions will include history of steaming, set up safety, set up run through and demonstration of how to use equipment, contraindications, stool storage/cleaning/maintenance, and in depth breakdown of your chosen herbs.
Steaming postpartum will speed up healing, soothe the perineum, aid in the relief of hemorrhoids, encourage dispelling of lochia, and help you to become more acquainted with your postpartum self on many levels.
Lets honor your body and the big job it has done!
Speed up your recovery and bond with yourself and your amazing body.
