Yoni Steaming 101 with Mama Luna

I had a growing respect for my womb being this beautiful vessel for creation. I wanted a steaming seat that would honour that and so I thought – I need something that looks similar to a throne!

ABOUT EMMA

Emma Ako is a Bristol-based creative practitioner (though born and raised in London), avid natural health enthusiast and keen steamer! She began her journey into Yoni health in 2014 after coming across Queen Afua’s book ‘Sacred Woman’ and is loving every moment of the journey as she found that this put her in charge of her own health and created a better relationship with her body.

She uses her creativity to solve problems and provide solutions which is how Mama Luna was born; she couldn’t afford a steam seat so made one and has gone on to use Mama Luna as a platform for women to have open and honest conversations about our Yoni health, womanhood and her favourite….EMPOWERMENT!

In short, Mama Luna is all about moving from silence, stigma and shame to rediscovering, reclaiming and redefining OUR WOMANHOOD!
