Vaginal Steaming for Fertility and Menstrual Cycle Balance
Liberty is a certified womb steam practitioner through the Peristeam Hydrotherapy Institute in California and also considers herself a plant medicine womban. She is passionate about sharing the beautiful ritual of womb steaming as a self-care practice and supporting women to re-connect with their wombs so they can realize their inherent superpower. Liberty came across steaming on a podcast and immediately reaped the benefits of this ancient practice. This inspired her to study the practice and share its many benefits, both physical and spiritual, with as many women as possible. Women are cyclical beings, and she believes that steaming, cyclical living, and other lifestyle changes can address menstrual cycle imbalances.
How we menstruate and honour our bodies is a choice that can benefit us as we move through our menstruating years and in turn age and move into our second spring (menopause) gracefully and beautifully.
