Yoni steams are an ancient tradition said to help with many female reproductive ailments. I offer a few different herbal concoctions and will use your intake form to determine which is best suited to you. When you choose to have the steam in shop, you will sit on a specially made stool, in an environment designed to bring feelings of wellness and relaxation with a gentle steam moisturizing and toning your most sensitive areas for 20-30 minutes. During your session you can meditate, or choose to journal your emotions as they come to you. You may choose to sip an herbal tea, or listen to music. **
As a certified aromatherapist, I am happy to work with clients and find essential oil blends that work best for your specific needs**. Essential oils are another ancient modality, used to assist in the treatment of things from skin conditions to psychological ones. I will meet with you and determine which oils would be best for you to use in massage, lotions or in diffusers. Sessions are 30 minutes long and will include a confidential discussion of your personal needs. Also, be sure to check the shop for specialty blends available for immediate purchase! **

Postpartum Sealing and Binding Ceremony
A postpartum sealing and binding ceremony is designed to bring closure to the opening and cooling of the body that occurs during pregnancy and birth. Your ceremony in the shop will include a lovely, specially made herbal tea, a recounting of your birth story to honor and acknowledge this transformative time. Following the tea/story you can choose a lovely rub down using special warming herbally infused oil, followed by a sacred tuck-in ceremony with a warm wrapping of the body from head to toe accompanied by a blessing spoken over the mother. After the tuck-in has been completed you will have a special herbal toning paste applied to the tummy and then be wrapped from rib cage to waist with a belly binder that has it’s roots in Malaysia. Bengkung belly binding is used to close the body after birth, insulate the mother from growing to chilled and help with posture and lower back pain. The facilitator will teach the mother how to wrap herself, as the binding should be worn for 40 days (for 10-12 hours each day.) Your ceremony will include a quart of the special postpartum tea and a handmade, one of a kind belly binding to keep. If you choose to have this ceremony facilitated in your home- you can include a ceremonial herb or milk and honey bath!
As for that new baby? We welcome your bundle and will gladly take care of him/her while you have the opportunity to rest and soak in all the healing energy. I am a trained infant care professional, after all! Let me know if you’re bringing baby, so I can be sure to have an extra set of hands around if needed.
