Keli Garza of Steamy Chick joins the Birth Kweens to discuss vaginal steaming! Keli has a master’s degree in International Development. When she founded the company Steamy Chick–the largest distributor of vaginal steam supplies in the United States–she began to work with her customers to research their results with vaginal steaming. Having recorded over seven hundred case studies, Keli holds the only known research database on vaginal steaming. Learning from her customers’ experiences, she developed unique vaginal steam treatment protocols for different conditions and has become a skillful practitioner able to treat a wide array of women’s health concerns. Based on her practice, Garza is now founding a new field of women’s medicine called Peristeam Hydrotherapy–the use of vaginal steaming for menstrual and reproductive health. She has certified over one hundred practitioners worldwide through her Peristeam Hydrotherapy Institute and is conducting clinical studies which will help to establish vaginal steaming as an evidence-based medical science.
