What is Yoni steam?
Yoni steam (vaginal steam or v-steam) has surged in popularity in Europe due to Gwyneth Paltrow’s praising reviews.
In this program, the client sits on a stool with a hole in the middle to allow the Biwa or Yomogi steam to rise and come into direct contact with the genitalia. Yoni steam promotes perspiration, so it’s a good way to warm the body and detox. The temperature can be modified to each client’s preference (34-39 degree Celsius).
Each seat is thoroughly sanitized with hospital-grade disinfectant after each use and then covered in a fresh towel. During the program, clients are in a full-length robe.
This program uses Biwa (loquat or Eriobotrya japonica) or Yomogi (Japanese mugwort or Artemisia princeps) leaves for therapeutic purposes.
Loquat fruit is a specialty in Nagasaki. They were used in this community and the rest of the world as a home remedy.
We only use leaves which are organically and locally grown in Sasebo and Nagasaki.
There are reports about the health benefits of these leaves (Niagam et al, 2019, Tan et al, 2017).

Konjac hot pack
Konjac hot pack with Biwa leaves or extract is used as a home remedy for detox. Warm konjac wrapped in a towel is put on the shoulders, stomach, back or feet.
Konjac is non-toxic and has shown to have benefits for internal organ and skin health (Bateni et al, 2013, Zhu, 2018).
