Google "vaginal steaming".
Seriously. Google it.
You'll find anything from "Why You Shouldn't Steam Your Vagina" blogs to "Why You Shouldn't Try Vaginal Steaming" articles to "V-Steam is Actually a Thing" videos to "I Tried A Vaginal Steam Treatment, And Here's What Happened" personal accounts. The majority of these articles are written by people who have never once tried vaginal steaming and/or have limited knowledge of and experience with the traditional healing practice.
Long before Gwyneth. Long before Chrissy. Long before the Mowry sisters. Long before Jada. More than a luxury spa service, vaginal steaming is a healing modality with hundreds, possibly thousands, of years of empirical evidence that spans globally throughout various cultures and civilizations. Continuing to carry the torch for traditional healing methods, Keli Garza is The Original Steamy Chick.
