On average, menarche (the first period) occurs around the age of 13, though it may occur earlier or later. It is recommended that a child start steaming at the age of 12 in order to encourage a healthy first period.
Once the first period occurs, steaming should be done the day after the period ends as a regular monthly practice.
They can also add weekly steam sessions to encourage cycle regularity and improved period health.
Once the menarche starts it is recommended that they schedule their first appointment with a Peristeam Hydrotherapist to make sure their period is healthy and to receive instruction on how to have a healthy menstrual cycle.
If menarche happens much earlier than 13 years old, a Peristeam Hydrotherapist might be able to delay the period with an herbal steam plan. If the menarche has not come by the age of 14 or older, a Peristeam Hydrotherapist can recommend a steam plan that may help encourage the period to start.
