I practice Maya Abdominal Massage, and have for 10 years now. Vaginal steams have always been an optional, adjunct service. Women experience extraordinary results and great benefits through vaginal steaming. Find FAQs about steaming here!
It has come to my attention that Aviva Romm, who I greatly respect, wrote an article denouncing the validity, safety and efficacy of vaginal steams. I generally respect Aviva’s work, so the lack of cultural sensitivity around steaming saddened and surprised many of us. Aviva’s work is research based. I love science. I am a geek. As we know, there are many great practices that will never receive research funding and there are many phenomena that science cannot fully explain.
The mystical properties of plant medicines cannot be explained by science. The mystery of what actually makes labor begin is in the mystery. Some things cannot and should not be explained.
Moral of story. Keep steaming your pussies!
