They have been in talked about more and in the press lately thanks to celebs like Gwenyth Paltrow singing it’s praises. So, without further ado, here is your go-to guide with everything you want to know about the V-Steam.
What can a V-Steam do for me?
The V-Steam helps to warm the pelvis and create better circulation among other benefits. The steams are typically helpful for such signs and symptoms as:
- Menstrual cramps
- Dark blood
- Spotting with brown blood at the onset or end of menstruation
- Infertility- natural and assisted cycles
- Pelvic pain
- Vaginal spasms
- Vaginal irritation
- Vaginal dryness
- Pelvic pain
- General feelings of cold in your abdomen and or pelvic area
The steam can be safely used in conjunction with Western and Eastern medical practices.
When in my cycle is the best time for an appointment?
This really depends on why you are coming in for the V-Steam. So, for example, if you are coming in for period related symptoms then booking your appointment at the onset of light spotting or tail end of the period would be the most beneficial.
If you are trying to conceive naturally or with an assisted cycle then the end of the period would be appropriate timing, so when you know there is no chance of pregnancy during that cycle.
During assisted cycles, just prior to a transfer, is also an excellent time make your appointment. One to two days is optimal preparation. If you’re experiencing any other symptom than usually anytime is fine.
If you are pregnant or have an IUD we would not reccomnd that you receive the V-steam treatment.
What Should I Expect During My V-Steam?
You will find yourself in an intimate setting with a comfortable and private treatment room. In each session an individual blend of herbs will be created to fit your personal needs. The dried herbs are selected for their medicinal properties.
After the intake you will be asked to remove your underwear an sit on a specially handcrafted bench and completely tent your lower body. You will never be exposed! Then your special blended tea will be placed in a bowl and slipped underneath your tent.
The steam should never be hot, just warm. While you are steaming I will massage specific areas on the back to allow you to relax and to support the movement of Qi in your body.
How Will I Feel Afterwards?
You should feel very relaxed after the steam. Women also report feeling better circulation in there whole body. You may also feel more sensual and connected to your pelvis.
