The Acupuncture 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 Asian Medicine. We will also discuss modern applications and how it is used worldwide.

    Great Material for Acupuncturists

    Published by Unknown on 4th Dec 2019

    What a great course this was! I appreciate the in-depth review of all potential scenarios relevant to steaming. As a reproductive acupuncturist, I am confident in the knowledge gained and recommendations I will have for the conditions we commonly see. Very useful in clearing up some common misconceptions on who should/should not steam and when, which only increases the effectiveness of this wonderful practice. Thanks so much!

    So Much Knowledge

    Published by Capri Kurtz M.Ac, CYT on 24th Nov 2019

    I really appreciate the intensive study that was put into the TCM history and beyond. It's just something I would have never had access to before and probably one of the only places this is all compiled. This definitely gives confidence of the use of "fumigation" as something within my scope of interest/previous study and (future) practice. Thanks for doing the work to bring this out. I feel confident to offer steams to other on a fairly basic level as well as use it myself with much more knowledge than if I just started on my own.

    Very Informative

    Published by Jocey R on 21st Aug 2019

    This was a great course to take. I felt engaged and wanted to absorb all of the info as much as possible. It was nice seeing both the perspectives of the therapy and having them come together. Both Keli and Kristin are great about responding to any questions or feedback. I felt like I was supported through the course and gained enough knowledge to incorporate the practice into my own life, and with patients, confidently.

    I took this course a while ago and now revisited it again. I cannot believe how much information I missed the first time. This course is not only filled with incredible information but it is presented in such a way that makes it easy to understood and the information is invaluable. I truly recommend this course for anyone thinking about adding steaming to their practice.
