Perhaps you've tried traditional Western medicine and it hasn't worked for you. Or maybe you are ready to layer in a new approach to your health.This isn't about simply plucking any natural remedy from the garden. Botanical science can be amazingly simple in it's effectiveness – but it's also amazingly complex.So as a clinical herbalist and licensed dietitian nutritionist, my approach is always going to begin by listening to your health story, and digging deeper.

When applicable, you will also receive a custom herbal formula (either in loose leaf tea form or as an herbal tincture). Supplements may also be recommended when appropriate. You can expect to be given holistic, Ayurvedic inspired seasonal recipes and nutrition guidance to support you in reaching your health goals. Follow up appointments can be scheduled as needed.
Soothe and revitalize your reproductive system with the ancient practice of yoni steaming.
Yoni steaming, also known as vaginal steaming, is a practice in which a woman allows the warmth of herbal steam to permeate the exterior of her vagina. Respected by healers around the globe, yoni steaming is an opportunity to reconnect with your body and utilize the wisdom of plant medicine to heal your cycle.
Experience The Difference Yoni Steaming Can Make For You
For millennia, women have shared this knowledge among one another, inspiring each other to connect with, love and heal our bodies. Today, countless women are rediscovering the practice, along with its vast and varied benefits. Yoni steams have been found throughout history to:
Significantly reduce pain, bloating and exhaustion associated with menstruation.
Decrease menstrual flow as well as reduce dark purple or brown blood at the onset or end of menses.
Regulate irregular or absent menstrual cycles.
Increase fertility, especially when combined with ATMAT.
Speed healing and tone the reproductive system after birth.
Treat uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts, uterine weakness, uterine prolapse & endometriosis.
Assist with the repair of a vaginal tear, episiotomy, or C-section scar.
Assist with the healing of hemorrhoids.
Treat chronic vaginal/yeast infections, and works to maintain healthy odor.
Relieve symptoms of menopause including dryness or pain during intercourse.
Detoxify the womb and remove toxins from the body.
Release stored emotions and tap into the energy that is our creative potential.
Yoni steaming works by supporting your body through its natural processes. Many reproductive challenges such as menstrual cramps and infertility are caused when there is excess build up of uterine lining that was not shed in previous cycles and is now “encrusted” to the inside of the uterus. Because this material is built up over time, the uterus and the muscles around it work excessively hard to shed it, often causing pain and fatigue. A yoni steam works by applying gentle heat, as well as moisture that carries medicinal plant oils, to the exterior tissues of the vagina (the tissue referred to as the vulva).
The warmth and moisture increases circulation to the vulva, causing it to swell and expose the inner labial mucous membranes. These tissues are very porous and absorbent, allowing the bloodstream to pick up the medicinal oils and carry them into the inner reproductive system, including the uterus. There, they work to help the uterus cleanse and release what is built up on its lining, ensuring that the next cycle is easy and pain-free, helping an egg to implant, and reducing other uterine abnormalities. The result is a healthier, more pleasant cycle and a more connected woman.
