The V-Steam is a healing herbal sauna for the vagina and uterus. By steaming vaginally, you cleanse and care for the vagina and uterus; an ancient tradition used for menstrual problems, after giving birth, when you want to have a child, or just whenever you feel like enjoying a relaxing moment for yourself.
Our method of vaginal steaming is unique in the Netherlands. You get to lie comfortably and covered on a luxurious treatment bed, instead of having to sit on a pot. Since the lights in the treatment room are dimmed, we ensure that there is plenty of privacy and discretion.
At Cooch Clinic, we use 100% natural leaves, each with their own effect. Based on your needs and desires, we select your personal blend of herbs so you can enjoy an ultimate, luxurious spa experience.
The V-Steam begins with a brief abdominal massage. This stimulating massage prepares the uterus for vaginal steaming. Following this, steaming begins, whereby the heat immediately causes the pores to open. This allows the medicinal herbs to be absorbed by the tissues of the vagina and uterus, which increases blood flow in these areas, oxygen levels also rise and metabolism increases. The pelvic and uterine muscles will relax, which can induce a pain-relieving and soothing effect. After the V-Steam, we recommend you to take fifteen minutes to recover in our stylishly atmospheric Garden of Eden relaxation room. Your body can quietly recover while you enjoy a cup of herbal tea. Will you be going out again afterwards? Make sure you keep your body as warm as possible.
