Rochelle Spann, of Atlanta, Georgia, found vaginal steaming while looking for a natural remedy for her daughter's painful period. Having worked as a makeup artist for years, she began a journey for health and wellness. That journey lead her to vaginal steaming which she now offers in her home office and her client's homes as well. We interviewed Rochelle to learn more.
What is your profession?
I am a Green Beauty Makeup artist, Certified Holistic Health Coach and Certified Peristeam Hydrotherapist.
Where did you go to school or get your professional training?
I am self-taught makeup artist. I’ve been in love with makeup my entire life so when I started my health and wellness journey, switching to natural cosmetics became a mission of mine as well. I got my Health Coaching Certification through the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in New York, New York. My Peristeam Hydrotherapist Certification is from Steamy Chick.
How long have you been practicing?
I’ve been doing health coaching since May 2015, Yoni Steaming since August of 2017, and makeup for over a decade. Most recently I’ve been doing Green Beauty makeup since 2016.
How did you learn about vaginal steaming?
I learned about vaginal steaming while working as a health and wellness coach. My daughter had been experiencing debilitating cramps and I wanted to find a natural remedy. Through online research I found Steamy Chick and started the certification program while still employed at the Wellness Center and completed the certification. My daughter had zero cramps after only ONE steam session. Made me a believer in the benefits of steaming right away!!
Do you use vaginal steaming yourself?
Yes I use vaginal steaming to maintain my vaginal health. My husband says a great benefit is tightening. He could tell a difference after only a couple of steams.
What has your personal experience with steaming been?
Vaginal steaming is very relaxing, I love doing it as a self care practice. I feel cleaner after I steam. I don’t get cramping as much now before my cycle. Steaming helped reduce and eliminate my PMS symptoms including breast tenderness. It has also worked as a natural vaginal tightening treatment per my husband.
Why did you decide to offer this service to women? Was there an “aha” moment?
I was in search of a natural way to eliminate my daughter’s severe monthly cramps. Once it helped her I had the "aha" moment.
How long have you been offering vaginal steam services?
I've been practicing vaginal steaming since 2017.
Where do you offer your services?
I offer mobile services and services in my home.
What benefits do vaginal steam services have for your clients?
My clients have reported decreased or non existent cramps, shorter periods, they felt more moisturized, a fresher smell, decreased or non-existent PMS symptoms, extreme relaxation, deep sleep after steaming and tightening.
How do clients respond when you offer them vaginal steam services? Any funny stories?
Women are typically receptive and interested in learning more about steaming. However, I've had a few tell me that they are not interested. They say the vagina is self cleaning and not meant to be steamed. I’ve also heard a woman say it was a barbaric practice and she was not interested in trying it. Surprisingly most women I share it with are very interested.
Any favorite quotes from clients either during or after steaming?
My husband says “go get right and tight for the night” which means “go steam and let’s make love.” Some women have said “let’s get our coochie’s cooked”!!
Do any vaginal steam success stories stand out where the client had a significant health breakthrough?
To-date my daughter is still my best success story. Her very first steam gave her relief for the first time since menarche. She no longer has debilitating cramps. Yayy!!!
