How Does a Yoni Steam Work?
Because of the abundance of blood vessels and mucus membranes, it is believed that the essence of the plant compounds are more easily absorbed through the walls of the vagina. Because of this permeability, doctors often prescribe vaginal suppositories to fight infections or balance hormones.
With that in mind vaginal steam have been known to soften and cleanse the uterine wall of accumulated debris. Although the steam does not directly enter the womb, the warmth of the steam softens the tissues, relaxes the belly and pelvic floor, and increases blood and lymph flow.
In Chinese medicine it is seen as helping to relieve coldness and stagnation in the body. The yoni tissue is one of the most absorbent of the entire female body.
