Also Known as Vaginal Steam Baths, and known in Central and South America as bajos, and in Korea as chai-yok. The Womb Steam is a centuries-old technique used by midwives and healers that has been gaining quite the popularity in holistic practices, physical therapy centers, and spas in the United States.
The steams act as a natural uterine lavage and use water steeped with medicinal herbs to address a slew of ailments including: irregular and painful periods, fertility challenges, bladder and yeast infections, and hemorrhoids.
The technique also supports the healing of uterine fibroids, perineal tears, and scarring from C-sections, hysterectomies, and laparoscopies. Pelvic steaming boosts circulation to the pelvis, which means increased oxygenation, dilation of blood vessels, and a relaxing of the pelvic floor muscles.
The vaginal steam bath is used for just about everything; to promote healing and rejuvenation for just about any woman’s reproductive health ailment. It may reduce stress, regulate the menstrual cycle, improve fertility, sooth alleviate painful menstrual cramps, and even help with bladder and vaginal infections with regular practice and use. Baths are widely used and highly recommended for women post-birth. The baths can safely be combined with either natural cycles or any cycle involving assisted reproductive technology such as IUI or IVF.
