Yoni/ Vaginal Steam


I started participating in steaming rituals - sweatlodge ceremonies 15 years ago as part of my healing journey. Steam and the use of herbs is not new to south africa nor to the rest of africa. Using steam in purification and healing has been used in many tribal traditions for centuries. The practice of body steams is passed down through generations of women by several tribal groups in africa, especially after a women has given birth as well as when problems occur in your womb or yoni. Our womb and yoni’s are held so sacred by our ancestors that it was taboo to talk about them outside of a women’s circle. 

I have been initiated through many water ceremonies on three different continents as a Water Medicine Woman. I have received the teachings, guidance and blessing  to formulate an authentic yoni steam process for the benefit of myself and my clients.


I offer an authentic yoni steam session, taking you on a journey into your body using all of my training to hold a safe, nurturing and empowering space while being an anchor for the frequencies of Divine Love. It is recommended that your yoni steam sessions form part fo your journey of empowerment. One yoni steam session alone cannot be a cure all for you. 

Yoni steaming is an ancient practice - done so in moderation - to cleanse, nourish and heal the female organs, and have been practiced by women across the world for many years. Many tribes in Africa pass down yoni steam methods from mothers to daughers and have been doing so for centuries. The Ashanti, Xhosa, South American, Indonesian and  Korean women all practise yoni steaming in different ways.


What is a Yoni/ Vaginal Steam

When dried herbs are placed in the hot water, the volatile oils that contain medicinal properties are released. A yoni steam works by applying gentle heat, as moisture that carries these volatile oils, to the exterior tissues of the vagina ( the tissue referred to as the vulva). The warmth and moisture increases circulation to the labia, causing it to swell and expose the inner labial mucus membranes. These tissues are very porous and absorbent, and the bloodstream picks up the volatile oils then carries them into the inner reproductive system, including the uterus. Thus the herbal steam increases circulation, thins the mucus and revitalises the entire system, allowing it to shed unnecessary membranes and build-up. The result is a healthier, more pleasant cycle and a more connected woman.

What my clients say:

"I experienced my first Yoni steam with Rah and felt a profound and deep healing occurring through this beautiful ritual. Rah held the space with compassion and integrity and I felt safe to feel and express what came up through the process. I have recommended her to many of my patients and believe the work she is doing is powerful and necessary for our humanity"
Dr Kate-Louise McCay, Osteopath.

“I went to Rah with no idea what lay in store regarding my Yoni Steam session. What happened is rather difficult to express in words.
Rah took me so gently through the process, ensuring that I felt private and completely safe at all times.
The result of becoming intimate with my yoni in this gentle manner was profound. It was like going into a deep meditation, sinking into my body and finding an ancient connection to my feminine divine through my yoni. I felt waves of emotion rising and clearing and the softest sensation of coming home to that part of myself from which I had disconnected for so very long.
I left with a gentle joy and a profound sense of peace. I will most certainly return to continue the work…….”
