How is Yoni steaming done?
During the Yoni steaming, you are within the privacy of our Yoni sanctuary. This is a very gentle process which involves sitting on a custom Yoni chair with a cushioned seat that has an opening. Each seat is thoroughly sanitized after each use and then covered in a freshly cleaned towel. Mild steaming organic herbs are placed under the opening and the herbal infused steam gently permeates the Yoni into the womb.
