Vaginal steaming spa observes Women’s Health month

October​ ​is​ ​Women’s​ ​Health​ Month, ​and day spa owner ​Allison​ ​Nahoopi`i of​ ​Yoni​ ​Steam is honoring that by offering 50% off a yoni steam all month.

What’s a yoni steam, you ask? It’s a vaginal steam that proponents say helps alleviate menstrual cramps, boost fertility, balance hormones, and more. Despite the fact that Gwyneth Paltrow wrote about it on her blog, I somehow remained unaware of it until now.

“Yoni steaming—also known as vaginal steaming—is a practice in which a woman allows the warmth of a mild organic herbal steam to permeate the exterior of her vagina up into the womb,” explains the website. “The Yoni Steam provides non invasive treatment for purification and release. Steaming helps women to purify their core and release energy and emotions they no longer wish to hold in their wombs.” 

The Kapahulu women’s-only​ ​spa​ offers women a​ ​45-minute​ ​steam​ ​treatment crafted from a blend​ ​of organic​ ​herbs.​ ​”Historically,​ ​women​ ​claimed​ ​​benefits​ ​from​ ​yoni​ ​steaming include​ ​the​ ​release​ ​of​ ​negative​ ​emotions,​ ​increased​ ​fertility,​ ​body​ ​detoxification,​ ​support​ ​through menopause,​ ​and​ ​an​ ​overall​ ​uterine​ ​care,” says press agent Lacey Matsumoto.

To be clear, its website offers the disclaimer “This information has not been evaluated by the AMA or FDA. There have not been any scientific studies on Yoni steams, all reported benefits are based on personal accounts. This information is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.”

Matsumoto describes the process: “As​ ​you​ ​enter​ ​the​ ​day​ ​spa,​ ​you​ ​are​ ​given​ ​a​ ​robe​ ​and​ ​escorted​ ​into​ ​the​ ​changing​ ​room.​ ​From​ ​the​ ​room, you​ ​enter​ ​the​ ​steam​ ​area​ ​where​ ​you​ ​are​ ​given​ ​the​ ​option​ ​to​ ​remain​ ​in​ ​a​ ​private​ ​room,​ ​or​ ​draw​ ​your curtains​ ​to​ ​chat​ ​with​ ​friends.​ ​During​ ​the​ ​steam​ ​process​ ​you​ ​are​ ​offered​ ​a​ ​menu​ ​of​ ​organic​ ​snack options​ ​and​ ​beverages.” It sounds like it could be very social!

Nahoopi`i founded the spa​ “to​ ​provide​ ​women​ ​with​ ​a​ ​safe​ ​space​ ​focused​ ​on​ ​self​ ​love.​ ​The​ ​company’s focus​ ​is​ ​on​ ​improving​ ​women’s​ ​reproductive​ ​and​ ​emotional​ ​health​ ​through​ ​yoni​ ​steaming,​ ​a​ ​process which​ ​has​ ​roots​ ​in​ ​African,​ ​Mayan,​ ​Greek,​ ​Native​ ​American,​ ​Filipino,​ ​Japanese​, ​and​ ​other​ ​Asian cultures,” Matsumoto backgrounds. Certainly, as a yogi, I like the idea of building on ancient and holistic wellness practices.
