Although peristeam hydrotherapy has been practiced for centuries, there simply isn’t a lot of information available in the western world. If you are unsure if steaming is right for you we suggest you talk to your Doctor.

It is very important that you answer your intake questions honestly. In doing so, our office is able to determine if you are a good candidate for steaming.
