Vaginal Steam also known at V-steams or yoni steams have been used for centuries in many different cultures to support health and wellness. A vaginal steam bath is a relaxing practice of placing hot herb-infused water under your pelvis so the steam rises up into the vagina. The herbs chosen are specific to the nourishment of the vaginal tissue.
A vaginal steam bath is a pleasant and meditative practice used to support healthy menstruation, alleviating symptoms of PMS, supporting easeful menopause, alleviating uncomfortable symptoms of peri- and post-menopause and supporting fertility.
"I always felt like Chaya was present and actually hearing what I had to say, which in and of itself was therapeutic. The Maya Abdominal Massages and Vaginal Steams were amazing. I had endometriosis, which caused debilitating menstrual pain. After three sessions, my next menstrual period was bearable for the first time in a long time. In addition to the bodywork and counseling, Chaya’s presence on its own was healing. I am grateful that I found her."

"Before I found Chaya I was struggling with many issues related to menopause. My post-hysterectomy body felt dried up and tired. I felt shame and anger towards my body and disconnection from my body, my energy and my capacity for joy. From the beginning of our work together Chaya put me at ease and welcomed me and my body with kindness and without judgment. Her sense of humor, body-positive, age-positive and woman-positive affirming approach is a great antidote to body shame and disconnection. When I started working with her, I thought it would all be about bodywork, but it turned out to be so much more: body, mind, soul and heart work, too. Seeing myself through her eyes, I now feel that I am fundamentally whole. I've regained my agency and zip, and my body has awakened and come alive again."
After a series of sessions with Chaya, my menstrual cycles shifted profoundly. My symptoms included debilitating cramps that often induced vomiting, with an understandably melancholy affect. After five sessions that including Maya Abdominal Massage, Holistic Pelvic Care and Vaginal Steaming, I actually began to have peaceful menstrual cycles. I now have more awareness of my internal organs, and that feels empowering. Chaya has an admirable way of creating space for healing. I have never had such an encouraging outcome from a chronic health issue. Thank you Chaya!
