I have been a practitioner of Maya Abdominal Massage for 10 years now. I have offered vaginal steams in my office for most of that time. I have witnessed extraordinary results and great benefits.
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. As I said I generally greatly respect Aviva’s work, though the cultural lack of sensitivity around this was surprising and saddening. Aviva’s work is very science and research based. I love science. I am a geek. And as we know, there are many great practices that will never receive research funding.
Also, science cannot explain everything. The mystical properties of plant medicines cannot be explained by science. The mystery of what actually makes labor begin. We do not know. Some things cannot and should not be explained.
Moral of story. Keep steaming your pussies!
