Esthetician Day Spa Owner, Tyra Jackson, shares how she got into vagina steaming and the benefits her clients have gained from the practice. I talk with Tyra to find out more.
Me: What is your profession?
Tyra: Wellness Day Spa owner.
Me: Where did you go to school or get your professional training?
Strayer University (BBA); Virginia School of Technology (Massage Therapy, Nursing); Dawn Training Center (Aesthetician); Peristeam Hydrotherapy Institute (Postpartum Peristeam Practitioner, Skincare Peristeam Practitioner)
Me: How long have you been practicing?
Tyra: I started my holistic wellness journey 19 years ago when I graduated from massage school in June of 1999 and I have been on the journey ever since adding more knowledge and other holistic practices.
Me: How did you learn about vaginal steaming?
Tyra: I was flipping through the television and stopped on an episode of a reality television show where the women were at a spa getting V-steams. I had never heard of this, but I have worked in spas. The way the Korean spa owner was telling the benefits of receiving a steam intrigued me. That’s when I began researching vaginal steaming and discovered how amazing this practice is.
Me:Do you use vaginal steaming yourself?
Tyra: I absolutely use vaginal steaming on myself. I have a steam regimen where I dedicate an allotted time for myself to do self-care. I stick to my regimen and don’t allow myself to miss any days. One of my philosophies for my business is I wouldn’t offer anything I wouldn’t use on myself.
Me: What has your personal experience with steaming been?
Tyra: My personal experience with vaginal steaming has been nothing but amazing. I was diagnosed with fibroids and started experiencing heavy bleeding. It was so bad that I had to stay at home on the first two days of my period out of fear of what I call a “gush” accident. After steaming a couple of times, I began to notice changes in my cycles. There was less blood, blood clots and the number of days lessened. Now that more time has gone by and I have more steaming sessions under my belt it has done wonders. I’m free now to go out on those first two days without worry of any accidents or mishaps! It has improved my quality of life, my sex life, and I feel better having done it naturally.
Me: Why did you decide to offer this service to women? Was there an “aha” moment?
Tyra: I decided to offer this service to women because it is very much needed. It helps women heal themselves and it addresses many issues. When I actually felt the benefits and saw other women benefit from vaginal steaming I knew I had to offer this in my spa, because people want results.
My "aha" moment was when I first started doing at home steams on myself and I offered to do one for my cousin. I wanted to see if she would notice any changes or see any benefits herself. She was open to it and after doing only one steam she called me later in the month in amazement. She stated that she usually always has bad cramping on her period, but this time there were none. She also told me she seems to be more lubricated naturally when it’s time for intimacy. I was so excited she received some benefits from the first treatment that I thought to myself……….ahaaaa!
Me:How long have you been offering vaginal steam services?
Tyra: I started offering vaginal steaming services in my spa since November, 2017.
Me:Where do you offer your services?
Tyra: I’m located in Wilmington, Delaware. Due to an increased interest in the vaginal steaming services that I offer, I’m currently looking for a bigger location with more amenities.
Me: What benefits do vaginal steam services have for your clients?
Tyra: My skincare clients are not only treating their skin topically, they are getting even more skincare benefits with vaginal steaming. Steaming allows skin issues to be addressed from the inside out because vaginal steaming goes inside to cleanse, detoxify, and it boosts circulation which brings oxygen and nutrients to the skin surface.
Me: How do clients respond when you offer them vaginal steam services? Any funny stories?
Tyra: Most of my clients are open to the experience and want to try it because they are curious. Some even come asking for it because they have already heard great things about steaming. The response has been really amazing. So amazing that I need a bigger space to do it. There were a few of my clients who were a little leery because they never heard of it and weren't quite sure what to expect. They didn’t know if I would be investigating their vagina or what would be happening. That’s when I was able to educate them on steaming and put their minds at ease.
I was tickled a little when I asked one of my clients to try vaginal steaming to help with some skin issues she was having because I knew they were hormonal. She looked at me funny and said, “I’m here for the skin on my face, what does my vagina have to do with it?” I started explaining to her the benefits and how steaming could help even more. She wasn’t budging, so I offered her a quick ten-minute steam at a reduced cost just so she could experience it. She reluctantly agreed and by the time she was finish she said, “Now look at that! I came in for a facial, left out with a vaginal steam. I got treated top to bottom and I really loved the bottom treatment!” She is now one of my regular vaginal steam clients.
