“In healing yourself you heal the world”
Welcome Goddess! I am grateful and honored to have you here and I’d like you to know this isn’t by chance. There is a reason we are connecting and I’m looking forward to healing with you. When women come together the cosmos shift, healing takes place across generations, and the Universe is forever changed. Trauma travels through DNA (scientific fact) until someone is ready to heal it. Your ancestors and descendants celebrate every time you do the work.
No two steam experiences are alike, not even your own. I’m a healer by trade and a Vaginal Steam Facilitator certified through Steamy Chick (Steamychick.com) the only certification currently available in the U.S.
I take this form of self-care and your time very seriously, but I am not here to heal you. I am here to facilitate your healing and help you tap into your limitless potential. Bella Luna means ‘beautiful moon’ and that is just what steaming does, creates a beautiful moon cycle for you. Imbalance in your womb creates imbalance in your entire body. From your skin, to your mood, to sleep, to your weight, to hair growth or loss, it all connects. Just because western medicine says there’s no cure doesn’t mean there’s not cure. They just don’t have a cure for it and let me tell you there IS a cure for EVERY imbalance/dis-ease in the body. From cramps to STIs and Fibroids, and beyond, Bella, you are capable of releasing what ails you with steaming. Both the physical and emotional body are healed with steaming and it has been scientifically proven that every physical illness has an emotional (root) component.
I first, learned about Vaginal Steaming from, Sabrina @ Sacred Lotus Yoni Steam, in December 2017 and I purchased herbs to do an at home steam for a family member with PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome). I began steaming at home and learning about all the beautiful physical, spiritual, and emotional benefits. As I got deeper into my groove I shared it with my circle of sisters and of course any one else that would listen! When I love something I let ya know! So, two years later here I am certified and spreading the word. Knowing what wonders vaginal steaming does for menstrual cramps, I can’t bear to hear womxn continue to complain about unnecessary pain (that we’ve taken on as a norm) month after damn month! I mean if it’s that bad, which I KNOW it is, why not take steps to change it?! It’s time for us womxn to take back our power, learn about, and embrace our womxnhood. All the healing power you need lies within. You are the DIVINE FEMININE baby!
This is a fast growing alternative treatment and there are some pretty shady practices going on out there. It’s important to do your research and make sure you’re safe.
Here are a few things that make Bella Luna special!
Steaming is not one size fits all. You will complete an intake and have a one on one with me prior to/during our first session. That will help me determine which herbal blend is right as well as the amount of time you’ll need to steam.
NO ONE should steam for an hour. It’s not safe. Your steam time is personalized and dependent on your initial intake. Each session with me is 10 - 30min.
I bring other tools to support in the process i.e. Goddess cards, crystals, sage, palo santo, candles, music, stretching, printed resources, essential oils, Reiki energy, etc.
As a holistic health coach I can suggests healing foods or practices that will aid in balancing your health as a whole.
I follow up with all clients after services with continued guidance.
p.s. A single steam session is a wonderful experience but, I recommend incorporating this into your self care routine as an ongoing practice. The standard packages each include 3 steams but you are more than welcome to schedule single sessions as you wish. Check out the soothing ad ons to really treat yo’ self!
What is Vaginal Steaming?
Vaginal Steaming is the fastest growing alternative treatment, but it’s hard for me to call it an “alternative” treatment because it’s been around longer than gynecology. Vaginal steaming is a form of medicine practiced around the world. The tissues of the vagina are exceptionally porous and absorbent , and the warmth of the steam works to soften and open them. When the herbs are placed in the hot water, their medicinal properties - including volatile oils - are released and carried to the surface of your skin and to the inside of the vagina, where they are absorbed into the bloodstream and into the uterus. The medicinal steam brings circulation, energy, and blood flow to your womb and it gently opens the cervix and creates space for the healing to take place. The herbal steam increases circulation, thins mucous, and cleanses the entire reproductive system, allowing it to shed unnecessary membranes and build-up of old brown blood, tissue, tampon particles, mucous, chemical/toxin build up, infection, suppressed emotion and trauma etc.
*Vaginal steaming is a universal practice without any one clear place of origin.
It appears to be a practice that women everywhere developed for the purpose of postpartum care and treating gynecological concerns.
Vaginal steaming has been found in the following places:
South Korea, Vietnam, China, Indonesia, Cambodia, Japan, Malaysia, Thailand
Turkey, Latvia, Sweden, Italy, Germany, Romania
Eritrea, Ghana, Kenya, South Africa, Morocco
Haiti, Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago
Suriname, Guyana, Panama, Belize, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Mexico, Navajo Nation, Lakota Nation
Palau, Papua New Guinea, Hawaii
Ancient Egypt, Babylonia, Mesopotamia, Aztec Empire and Mayan Empire
Who needs it?
Anyone with a vagina! Vaginal steaming can be done before menstruation and after menopause. The concept is simply cleansing the vagina with herbal steam, very similar to the steaming portion of a facial. So even young ladies can steam regularly. One of the biggest reasons I personally steam, aside from the positive physical effects, is to clear and heal trauma passed down over generations. Yes! It is a fact that your cells and DNA carry the trauma from your mother and grandmother. I also like to add their mothers’ mothers and grandmothers as well as your father’s grandmother and mother and so on. In healing and cleansing yourself you are activating different genetic responses and healing any pain and trauma you carry around.
Other reasons to steam:
- Recent breakup. Clear out stagnant energy and release any energetic ties you may be holding
- Irregular period
- Trying to conceive
- Having skin issues
- Looking to increase confidence and uncover purpose
- Clear Sexual Trauma
- Deepen the connection with yourself
- Yeast Infection
- Womb Trauma
- Fibroid Cleanse
- Cellular Support
- Pain Relief
- Hormonal Support
- Miscarriage Support
- Menopausal Support
- Natural Detox
- Stronger More Frequent Orgasms
- Healthy Ovary Support
-Inflammation and Bloating
-Tones and Strengthens Uterine Muscles
* Most commonly, vaginal steaming is used by midwives for postpartum care right after a woman has a baby.
Vaginal steaming is also used as a hygienic post-period practice to get any left-over blood out of the vaginal tract once the period is over.
Lastly, vaginal steaming is used to treat gynecological problems. Cramps, trouble conceiving, infections, fibroids, cysts, dryness...vaginal steaming helps to naturally get rid of the problem.
From the first period to post-menopause, it is an important tool for self-care. The vagina IS self-cleaning but it is NOT self- healing.
Does it really work?
Hell yes, honey! So far in my own personal practice I’ve worked with womxn post-partum to heal prolapse, dissolved fibroids, cured a client’s UTI in 2 days, and helped clients regulate their menstrual cycle creating the “perfect period” and eliminate cramps along with quite a few other magical emotional healing experiences.
*According to various case studies, vaginal steaming appears to improve symptoms in over 90% of all gynecological problems and shows tremendous potential as an alternative to invasive medical procedures.
There's clear reason why women everywhere have used it for thousands of years. There's nothing that compares to it.
One thing is evident--vaginal steaming doesn't hurt, and--if it does work in a specific case--it's a really good alternative to surgery and artificial hormones. For most, it is practical and affordable to give it a try.
How is sexual trauma is healed using Vsteam?
When someone experiences trauma or abuse their body can become stuck in a chronic low vibrational fight or flight state. Just take a moment to think of your cultural lineage alone as well as the poor treatment and abuse of womxn historically just in the U.S. - Yes! That's quite a bit of trauma that we have been carrying with us in the most sacred space of our body.
Vaginal Steaming helps women in recovery by effectively relaxing the viscera and the nervous system which can be stuck, causing major stress on the victims entire body. This can be happening for years without a woman even noticing. Many times the stress of sexual trauma manifests itself in the form of a physical ailment, more specifically int he reproductive region. It also causes an array of chronic illness in other organs of the body.
"A study by the Department of Neurobiology at Northeastern Ohio Universities College of Medicine has demonstrated that the vagus nerves conduct sensory information directly from the cervix to the brain. Since vaginal steam touches the cervix it’s very likely that this stimulates the vagus nerve. This is extremely relevant considering that stimulating the vagus nerve releases high levels of oxytocin --known as the “trust hormone” or “love hormone” which directly sends neurotransmitters to the brain to make someone feel happy and get the body’s nervous system out of fight-or-flight mode. One of the known side-effects of vaginal steaming is feeling relaxed and sleeping deeply afterwards which might further offer evidence that oxytocin release occurs while steaming." - Steamy Chick "The Science of Healing Sexual Trauma with Vaginal Steam"
In Haiti Vaginal Steaming is a service provided to survivors of sex trafficking as soon as possible after a violation occurs.
Practitioner Nancy Lopez has noticed some of the long term effects of sexual abuse are:
Pain during sex
and on a physiological level, case studies show that Vaginal Steaming resolves all of these issues.
Steaming also has a profound affect on emotions which have been scientifically proven to be the foundation of any imbalance in the body. When you take time to acknowledge your trauma and allow your body to release it in a safe, supported, and gentle way you are giving yourself the power that was stripped of you (or your ancestors) and reclaiming your body.
This is an extremely healing and shifting practice that involves womxn healing womxn.
Even if you haven't been a direct victim of sexual abuse steaming cleanses physically, mentally, and emotionally. In healing yourself you heal the world. Ain't that the truth?!
Womxn are born with eggs of our future children in our body. That means whatever anguish, trauma, and stress your grandmother experienced your mother experiences and whatever anguish, trauma, and stress she carried from her lineage was passed on to you. We are now to a point in history that we as womxn can focus on healing as a collective. By nature the divine feminine is healing, nurturing energy and we have gotten to a place in the workplace, home, and politically that in most parts of the world we can hone our powers and start doing the work we intended to do. In healing we are raising the vibration of ourselves, creating lives of freedom beyond our wildest dreams and raising the vibration of the world.
What does it feel like/What to expect with a session?
*You know the feeling you have after a hot shower or bath?
Your female organs feel like that.
How does it work:
I send you an initial intake form and I review it to personalize your herbal blend (sourced from Steamy Chick or Sacred Lotus Yoni Steam) and steam setup. We will discuss your vaginal health, goals, and I will also give you suggestions in both resource and action form to continue once the session is over.
I will travel to you with the set up and you will steam for 10-30 minutes depending on your intake. After your steam I provide a specially blended herbal to for reproductive support and liver detox which is directly related to any imbalance. You will also be given time to rest to allow your body to fully absorb the herbs and start the healing process. The entire session is about 90 minutes.
Blessings and love to you! You aren’t looking at this page just to pass it by, you’re here for a reason. Go for it! xoxoxo
