Steaming can be done anytime someone experiences sexual trauma that may have been painful or triggering or difficult to process. This is true for experiences where there was consent and someone is with a trusted partner as well as if there was a rape or other type of violation.
Vaginal steaming can be used to clear out other person’s semen and/or scent, disinfect wounds, possibly prevent pregnancy. Additionally, it serves as a soothing experience that may help to aid with relaxation when struggling with disturbed sleep. Lastly, vaginal steaming may help with the return of menstrual regularity and health which would be useful in hormonal balance — likely, a key factor in trauma recovery.
If focused on preventing pregnancy, healing wounds or returning menstrual regularity and health, a consultation with a Peristeam Hydrotherapist is recommended. Ask your practitioner if they are trained in this area or go to steamychick.com and search on the Vaginal Steam Directory for a practitioner with this skill.
