I had an awesome sit down with Keli Garza founder of Steamy Chick about Vaginal steaming. Vaginal steaming, sometimes shortened to V-steaming, and also known as yoni steaming, is an old health practice whereby a woman squats or sits over steaming water containing herbs.
Life after sexual assault is complicated and convoluted. Healing requires patience, and an open mind. This piece is the beginning of a series where I examine and share my experience to find a sense of peace and renewed self love. My hope is I can help bring light to those who are trying to heal and understanding to those who want to support someone in their healing.
For the longest I placed blame on my younger self for my sexual abuse. Always feeling like I could have done something. My counselor noted it and asked that I write a letter to my younger self. I avoided writing the letter for some time, and decided to write it on my 37th birthday. Which in hindsight, was a major milestone, 20 years since I had spoken up about being sexually assaulted.
