Yoni steaming for vaginal health as old as time - traditional healer
Yoni Steaming is an age-old natural remedy said to cleanse the vagina and uterus, regulate menstruation, and ease period cramps and bloating... and that it's become popular recently thanks to the likes of Gwyneth Paltrow and Chrissy Tiegan extolling the various virtues of Yoni Healing on social media, says CapeTalk host Sara-Jayne King.
Traditional Health Practitioner Nicky van Eck Zolezzi, who runs a practice called Garden Wisdom centred around Natural Healing for the Reproductive System, chats to Sara-Jayne about yoni steaming.
