Because it’s important to hold intentional space with our bodies.

I LOVE the elemental magic of steaming: earth, fire, air,+ water.
I LOVE how easy, accessible and beneficial this practice can be.
I LOVE the connection to our ancestors who have practiced steaming.
I LOVE how steaming makes me feel, and how this practice has relieved my painful and unpleasant menstrual symptoms.
I teach folks how to steam at home. Safely and effectively.
I talk to you about your menstruation, and with the information we gather, the observations you make, and the patterns we find: formulate a blend of herbs for you to steam with and a steam plan made just for you.
I'm Julia-thank you so much for being here!! I am a health and pleasure centered steam practitioner, lover of plants and the Earth, a Mother, homemaker, birth+postpartum keeper, herbalist, and lifelong learner of things that interest me. I love to cook for my friends and family, listen to audiobooks and podcasts, take Nature walks with my family, and imagine a world that is free from white supremacy and destructive economic systems.
I love connecting folks with herbs and steam and this is my work in the world.
