The Chinese Medicine Steam Therapist Certification is a specialization for acupuncturists to add to their current practice.
Vaginal steaming is a term to describe the therapy of introducing steam and smoke from boiled or burned medicinal herbs to the genitalia for gynecological uses.
Is this therapy within the scope of practice for Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioners? It is. There are many references to it's use within TCM ancient and modern texts.
In this certification we will start with historical context of vaginal steaming and a literary survey on the use of vaginal steaming in Chinese Medicine. We will also discuss modern applications and how it's used worldwide.
