I've had a partial or total hysterectomy. Are there any benefits of vaginal steaming for me?

Yoni Steaming is great for all aspects of female health, so it can definitely still be beneficial for you. Although all or part of the physical uterus may have been removed, the energetic center remains and can benefit from the warmth and clearing. Steaming is also great for increasing moisture, circulation, addressing odor and balancing vaginal pH which helps to prevent infections and bacterial vaginosis. Of course it is also a wonderful way to relax and pamper yourself, which is always a lovely benefit.

Can I still benefit from a Yoni Steam if I have already gone through menopause

Absolutely! Women in any cycle of life can benefit from a Yoni Steam, especially those who are menopausal. A Yoni steam is very moisturizing and may help to relieve dryness and may increase elasticity. It has been known to reduce severity and frequency of hot flashes and also really helps you sleep soundly. It is a wonderful way to relax and pamper yourself, which is always a lovely benefit.

Can Yoni Steaming increase sex drive?

Yes, Yoni Steaming may enhance sex drive. On an emotional level, Yoni Steaming supports us to cultivate a profound sense of self-love and increases our self-confidence (especially as it relates to our Yonis), which has great implications for a woman's sex life. On the physical level, Yoni Steaming increases circulation and increases lubrication, which is clearly great for the libido and sex life as well.

The LifeLab offers meditative yoni steaming as part of the complete healing process. For more information on the steams that offered independently of life coaching, visit thePink Orchid Jacksonville page.
