Yoni Steaming & Womb Healing

Are there any side effects when Yoni Steaming?  Some side effects are:

  • You may experience a headache , if so make sure you are kept hydrated and may need to reduce the length of time on the steamer.

  • May have a reaction to the herbs - an allergy to certain herbs - this is checked before herbs are supplied.

  • You may experience aching feet - just need to reduce to the length of the steam session.

  • You should never steam during pregnancy unless to support labour.  A miscarriage is possible if you steam during pregnancy as it is designed to increase circulation and clear out from the uterus and yoni area.

  • You may experience dry cramping after steaming - Might be a sign that some old residue has loosened up and the uterus is trying to remove it by contracting.

  • Urge to urinate - The steam is gently penetrating the urethra, this is normal to experience the sensation, its important to go to the toilet before a steam.

  • You may experience little loose bowel motions and can experience cramping in the lower abdominal bowel.  A cleansing process is taking place, may need to look at lessen the herbs or reduce length of steam.

  • You may experience an emotional release  after or during steaming, this is ok and is normal.

  • You may experience arousal of libido and sexual stimulation  - this is normal and not a bad thing.
