Holistic health is a common discussion amongst health practitioners and their patients. The body and mind work hand-in-hand to send messages to one another and work together to protect the body. Sometimes, no matter how much you try and how much your internal system tries, the body doesn’t always feel 100 percent, but Latasha Robinson is ready to change that through a more natural approach.
If you haven’t heard about Yoni steaming, you might learn a thing or two from Robinson. “The Yoni steaming process is not very well-known around here, but it should be! I have blends of herbs for different purposes such as colon health, period cramps, joint pain, and so on. The blends of herbs go into hot water that turns into steam,” Robinson explains. The hot water and herbs are inside a special seat for the steaming process.“The woman then sits on the seat and lets the steam clear the pores and detoxify the body.”
The vaginal area of the body has many pores that absorb and release toxins. Robinson explains that we don’t realize how many harmful toxins are inside our bodies just from the things we eat and the air we breathe. “We ingest chemicals all the time without realizing it. We rarely stop to think about what exactly we’re putting into our bodies and the harm it could be doing to us. Yoni steaming is an easy and relaxing way to draw those chemicals out and feel refreshed,” she says excitedly.
Robinson used to drive to Memphis, Tenn. for Yoni steaming, and she decided it would be easier to bring the steam to her town of Newport. “I was traveling over an hour to have this done, and I decided it was time for my home to feel the same level of health that I did.” Robinson took a class in Memphis at the Pampered Palace to become certified in the practice as a Yoni steam practitioner. Her store, Yoni Steam and Detox, has her blends of herbs for steaming as well as herb blends for teas. “The herbs used in the steaming are not digestible, their properties are centered in drawing out toxins, but I have other herbs for teas that you can enjoy during your steaming or to take home with you.”
Other services include herbal facials and steaming, ionic foot detox, sauna and the newest service to come to the shop is a full body herbal steaming. “These services are so relaxing and they target your health!” Robinson says. These extra services are open to anyone and everyone looking for a natural approach to health. Skin, arthritis, common aches, colon health and rejuvenation are a few of the many areas these services assist with.
Endometriosis, a condition where the tissue that normally lines the uterus grows on the outside instead, can be immensely painful. This condition is treatable, but the treatments are often expensive and can affect hormone levels. Yoni steaming can alleviate some of the pain brought on by endometriosis. While the relief from steaming will not take away the pain long-term, Robinson shares that there is a noticeable change in the body right after the session. “The relief and life you feel after a steaming is unbelievable. You feel like new,” she says.
Robinson is a small business owner, a minister, a motivational speaker and a mother of five. If anyone were to know a little something about stress and its effects on the body, it would be her. “I never knew that I was supposed to detoxify my body,” she laughs. “As women, we are the central source of everything. Everything has to go through us, but we are the least maintained or looked after. We give all of ourself to so many other people and so many different things, but we don’t do anything to help increase our life. We get our nails done, we get our skin done, we get our hair done, but we don’t do anything to practice actual self care on a health level.”
To encourage the self care she believes women are missing out on, Robinson has special packages for customers. “I have packages where you can come in with your friends, drink wine or tea and relax in satin robes while getting a Yoni steam. I also have a Mommy and Me package and it’s for two moms to come in together and just let loose for a couple of hours with the choice between two services offered at the store,” Robinson says.
Her store is full of pampering products and tools to help combat the silent wars within the body. While we may not know what exactly is going on inside, Robinson believes that’s no reason to ignore it. “When I do motivational speaking, I’m always trying to tell people that you have to take care of yourself. Stop and take the time to take care of you while you’re taking care of other people. Have a self care routine and make your life that much easier.”
